Please join Jigme Rinpoche, Khadro Kunsang, Tulku Rigzin and family and the PPI-Ati Ling sangha for the second anniversary of the parinirvana of our beloved Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche. We will be doing the Guru Rinpoche ‘Shower of Blessings’ practice in order to allow as many people as possible to participate, since empowerment is not required.

Grant your blessings to arouse the realization of renunciation.
For the vajra sangha, at the time of the peaceful departing of the peerless Dampa Pema Dorje, this was written by Zatrul Rinpoche, due to the supplications of his Sang Yum and students. May virtue increase.
The PPI sangha will also be offering Chagdud Rinpoche’s Green Tara practice and tsog, recognizing the kindness and significance of Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche requesting this practice from His Eminence Chagdud Rinpoche, and thus making it available to many practitioners to this day.
Access is restricted to those with the empowerment for this particular Green Tara (only given by Chagdud Rinpoche, Jigme Rinpoche and Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche).

Thank you for joining us in this celebration of the activity of this most precious teacher, who helped shape the path of so many practitioners. We look forward to sitting with our dharma brothers and sisters not only in the Americas, but also in eastern and western Europe, and Asia, where Lama Pema Dorje traveled tirelessly to the end of his life.
Text for the Shower of Blessings is available from Tibetan Treasures or PPI. The new edition of Green Tara is now also available!
