Join us online for an accumulation of mantras as an offering for world peace

The days of miracles, beginning on the 1st day of Tibetan New year Losar on February 10th, 2024. Commemorate the special time when Buddha Shakyamuni showed miraculous powers, and culminate on Chötrul Dűchen, February 24th, 2024. 

The mani retreat is centered on the boundless love, compassion, and wisdom of Avalokiteshvara, whose mantra is OM MANI PADME HUNG HRIH. When we recite OM MANI PADME HUNG with the mind to benefit all beings, we are engaging in a profound method that transforms our impure body, speech, and mind to a pure state of body, speech, and mind. Reciting each syllable of the Mani mantra with a mind of Bodhicitta closes the doors to the six realms of samsara and liberates sentient beings from suffering. 

“The more Mani mantras we recite, the more love will increase in the minds of sentient beings, the more hatred will decrease. The minds of beings will become peaceful and happy, which will also help one’s country. If the minds of humans become peaceful and happy, then also the minds of spirits will become peaceful and happy. The Mani mantra practice is supreme in order to bring about peace and happiness.”

H.E. Garchen Rinpoche
