May this offering create the cause for His Holiness the Dalai Lama to remain in this world for as long sentient beings remain.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche was planning to offer one thousand statues of Shakyamuni Buddha, All are invited to make an offering towards, or sponsor, one of these statues which will then be offered directly to His Holiness.
“By offering to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, you are making offerings to all the buddhas and numberless bodhisattvas. This generates limitless skies of merit—every day and every second.” – Lama Zopa Rinpoche
The Kopan monks and nuns have been working so hard to perfect the actual puja, as they will be offering the chanting and it will be based on Lama Chopa Long life puja. We will share the text with you soon so that everyone can be familiar and able to join the prayers.
The 1,000 statues of Shakyamuni Buddha which will be offered to His Holiness are well underway being created, as well as the two life-sized Namgyalma and Padmasambhava statues. These statues are being filled, gold gilded, and the faces are being painted in preparation for the offering. During the actual puja we will have more than 400 of the 1,000 statues to offer, and the remaining statues will be offered to His Holiness as soon as they are completed.
Thank you so much to everyone who has offered toward the statues and puja so far. There is still an opportunity to participate by offering statues and other offerings in the puja.
This puja is extremely poignant at this time, For many years Lama Zopa Rinpoche had made the request to offer a long life puja to His Holiness the Dalai Lama- who in actuality is Chenrezig Buddha-on behalf of FPMT. Now we have the opportunity to fulfill this request
