Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s message on the account of Grattitude Tenshug Ceremony dedicated to His Holiness sMenri Trizin Rinpoche
- HH sMenri Tri Zin Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer as much as possible:
- Tsedrub Nyen Pa, the Long Life mantra recitation: “So Drum Ah kar Mu La Ting Nam Woed Dhu Mu Ye Tse Ni Za”:
- Before ending the session sit in meditation and wish for H.H. health and Long Life.
- Then with genuine thought recite a the Dedication prayer, as you all know of it.
- In case if your time dos not allow to join in pray and practice, don’t worry, you could choose any thing that you could do and dedicate for the same reason, such as make a Commitment to do it, if can’t do it on those days or only one day, then on 1st November, which is the main day, or not make any one angry, rather think to do something good and positive, that may be helpful to others etc and then dedicate it to H.H. for his Health and Long Life that is ok too.

|Losar Tashi Deleg!
Happy Losar Wishes! Hello to all my students, friends, and supporters of Yeru Bon Center and BCH worldwide!
First of all, I wish all of you Losar Tashi Deleg (Lo: New year, Sar: New, Tashi: Prosperate or Good Luck, Deleg: Joy, may all be good).
Losar is one of the most important celebration and gathering of Tibetan families. We gather in our homes., as well as out, on these days and celebrate Losar together. Traditionally, the day before New Year’s Eve is known as 29th day ofthe 12th Month of Tibetan Calendar. At the Monastery we have big gathering after three or four days of a special Ceremony for the Yidam deity. At the end of the special Ceremony, we make a public blessing with Dhogpa. Dhogpa is a cleansing all bad luck and negative energy of individuals or the community. It is meant to pacify negative energy, and to receive blessings from your Rinpoche.
In the evening, for dinner we will have a special Thugpa (soup) called Gu Thug. This is a kind of stew, with a collection of nine different symbolical words written on pieces of paper. We put the papers in mixed flour and make balls with the paper inside, and open them when having family dinner.
Then next day, which is the last day of the old year, is very busy. Each family cleans their house and prepares their altar, placing on it very rich offerings to welcome the New Year, and also preparing Tibetan Khabsey, which is traditional pastry somewhat like a cookie, made of dough boiled in oil, and other good things to eat. Then everyone will put on their new clothes for New Year. When we were children, the most exciting part was to get new clothes from our parents!
Then most of the family members go to bed, but the Mother and elder sister wake up very early in the morning to get fresh water from our drinking water source. The idea is to be the first person to get the fIrst water of the year, and to make tea and make offering, first to your own altar, and then to take tea and Khyabsey to your teacher in the area, and wish him happy Losar, and then receive blessings from him.
After that, all family members wish each other a happy Losar by saying” Losar Tashi Deleg.” Then we take a bit of Chemar (which is made by mixing Tsampa and butter), wish each other longl ife, prosperity and good luck. Then we put the Chemar in our mouth, and take our seats at the table.
That day is mostly for Family only. No one goes out anywhere, except to receive blessing from the Rinpoche. On the first day of the New Year traditionally we don’t spend money, don’t use any negative words or harsh words, and are very polite and positive to all.
In the morning everyone prays for happiness and health of all family members, and for great prosperity and good luck in the days to come.
So on the very first day of the New Year, it is important to plant the positive seed of our fortune and luck with our thoughts. Therefore, is important to think positive thoughts and good wishes for all, including ourselves and our loved ones.
At the same time, enjoy life and time with your loved ones, because we never know when such joyous time will appear again. Therefore, be positive and be present with what you have.
Everyone should remember to join at your nearest Bon Center, if possible, for the 660th birth anniversary of Gyalwa Nyam Med Sherab Gyaltsen on February 13. On this day, the effectiveness of all our prayers is multiplied by 100,000.
Also, on that date, join in the Third Annual Yeru 24 Hour Global prayer for world peace and harmony, from 7 – 8 pm your local time.
I pray for everyone to enjoy happiness, good health, long life, and world peace and harmony!
With blessing and prayers,
Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche
THE HARMONY OF PRAYER, THE SOUND OF MEDITATION, THE PEACE OF BÖN
February 13, 2016
It’s hard to believe it has been three years since our first 24 hour Global Prayer Event!
Yeru Bön Center and Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche invite Bön practitioners and friends of Bön to participate in our third annual Global Prayer Event. This is an event where we pray and meditate for world peace and harmony.
Last year’s participation was well over 2,000 people from all over the world. The majority were Bönpos, but we had US soldiers and other non Bönpos praying throughout the world.
We received letters, photos and more from people around the world participating in this incredible event.
This year’s global prayer event will be February 13, 2015, the birth anniversary of Nyamed Shenrab Gyaltsen, the founder of sMenri Monastery, the main monastery of Bön.
On this auspicious day, every prayer we pray is multiplied by 100,000. On that day, we ask all practitioners to pray and meditate for one hour (or more) any time between 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in their local time zones. Gather as a sangha or by yourself, in a private place or in public.
This year, Rinpoche will release a new prayer, specially written at sMenri for this Global Prayer Event, to all registered participants.
This is how it works. Our Global Prayer Event will begin at sMenri Monastery in India, at 7:00 pm local time. His holiness, Monks and Bön practitioners in that time zone will pray the selected prayer and meditate for two hours, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. local India time. Prayers and meditation will continue with the next time zone (going West), until our prayers have gone full circle around the world.
There is no fee for this event. We ask only that you register your participation and time zone by February 11, 2016. After you have registered your name or group name, Yeru Bön Center will send the list of participants to His Holiness at sMenri Monastery. A special blessing will be given to all participants.
During your event, please feel free to post photos or messages of your gathering or meditation on Facebook or twitter. This way, everyone participating around the world can see the individuals and groups gather, uniting all Bön practitioners for this spectacular 24 hour global event.
Participation in all time zones will keep the Global Prayer Event strong and effective.
