In the past three years, global pandemic has affected many around the world. China, in particular, sees a massive outbreak of coronavirus over the past few months. Many of us, or our close relatives and loved ones are facing serious, or life-threatening, medical issues. In this difficult time, Mingyur Rinpoche and Tergar Monastery, out of great compassion, have kindly agreed to pray for all the beings affected by the pandemic.

On the 1st day of 2023, sangha members in Bodhgaya Tergar Monastery will perform two pujas. The first puja aims to give blessing and eliminate obstacles. Sangha members will pray for the pandemic to subside and all beings to enjoy health and happiness. The second puja aims to pray for the deceased, especially those who have passed away in the pandemic. Mingyur Rinpoche himself will also pray for the deceased in his practice to benefit them for their journey through the bardos, for their purification of bad karma and for helping them accumulate merit toward a good rebirth. Sangha members will also offer 108 lamps and flowers at Mahabodhi Temple in Bodhgaya to bless all beings for lasting peace and happiness. 

The event is free of charge. Everyone is welcome to register. Please provide the names of those in need of prayers for blessing and/or the names of the deceased in the registration form.
