According to the lunar calendar of the Yungdrung Bön, the 10th lunar day of each month is the day for the practice of the three sages: the great lama Drenpa Namkha and his two twin sons, Tséwang Rikdzin, and Pema Tongdrul.   For the Western month of June 2018, that date is June 23rd. This is the day set aside specifically to pay homage and make offerings to these lamas, as well as to recite the mantras associated with their respective practices.

“You are like the embrace of a thousand cloudless suns upon the very white, snow mountain, Mount Meru. A hundred praises to the deathless Tséwang Rikdzin, who overcomes the darkness of suffering of sentient beings during this degenerate time.”
