The 15th day of the 5th month on the lunar calendar this year coincides with July 16th on the Western calendar. This is the birth anniversary of the 33rd Throne Holder of Menri Monastery, His Holiness Lungtok Tenpé Nyima Rinpoche. This is a powerful day to engage in virtuous practice, recite prayers and mantra, and especially renew spiritual vows.
“You, my Lama, who has brought cyclic existence and nirvana under your power,
I and your other followers request,
please bestow benefits that are as limitless as the sky to migrating beings!
Please grant our wishes to be continuously without separation from your presence!
Continuously hold us with your unequalled compassion, I pray!”
