From May 11th – May 17th, Tashi Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India will conduct their annual ritual of offering 100,000 torma offerings to the primary guardian of the Yungdrung Bön, Sipé Gyalmo, as well as offering to her extensive retinue of manifestations and assistants. During this time both the monks and nuns will be simultaneously performing the offerings and recitations. Lay practitioners will be circumambulating the temples and reciting Sipé Gyalmo mantras.
For those unable to attend, it is an auspicious time to perform Sipé Gyalmo and Yeshé Walmo practice, mantra recitations and repair commitments with these protectors. Khyungdzong Wodsel Ling in California has been authorized by H.H. 34th Menri Trizin Rinpoche and H.E. Menri Pönlop Rinpoche to collect donations for the performance of the week-long ritual. Those who would like to donate can do so through this link: http://kwling.org/bon/bum-tsok-offering/
By donating to the ritual and/or performing Sipé Gyalmo practice, it is a powerful way of removing outer and inner obstacles and disturbances as well as strengthening the force of good fortune and health.
“Single Great Mother Sipé Gyalmo together with your retinue of nine hundred ninety thousand wrathful goddesses, please pay heed to me!
We, practitioners together with our companions, request your sacred activity of guarding those close to us and reversing external circumstances that are hindrances and obstacles.
Guard the sacred teachings and assist us with your force and your power.”
