An Immersive Experience
Led by Singha Rinpoche!  

A Date with Guru Rinpoche is for everyone to come together and connect with Guru Rinpoche for a day. There will be prayer sessions for you to engage in Guru Rinpoche practices with explanations and guidance by Singha Rinpoche. By listening to the Dharma and having faith in the power of prayers, we can collectively create the cause for positive transformation in ourselves and the world.  

Many great Lamas supplicate and pray to Guru Rinpoche to overcome huge obstacles on the path and to prevent any calamities from happening. Let us come together to make offerings and supplicate to Guru Rinpoche! May we all accumulate vast merits for our own awakening and for the welfare of all sentient beings!

Deepen your connection with Guru Rinpoche

Guru Rinpoche is always there for everyone, including you and me. Many have felt the presence of his blessings during past years of Guru Bumtsog, and cried after feeling the strong energy and love. We encourage all to come together to generate the faith and devotion to him, keeping the flame of hope alive that we can transcend our old self through the practice of supplicating to Guru Rinpoche!  

Doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you have the heart to connect with Guru Rinpoche, we want you to join us in this event!

Offer Tsog for a great wealth of benefits

Making offerings is an important part of our Buddhist practice, as it will help us to gather a collection of merits for success in our spiritual and worldly aspirations. We strongly encourage our participants to offer Tsog as part of the offerings to request Guru Rinpoche for his swift and powerful protection and blessings! 

The offering of Tsog on this special occasion not only helps us in gaining vast merits, it is also helpful in purifying obstacles, obscurations and negativities that hinder our path to enlightenment.

Receive precious heart teachings

Our Guru, Singha Rinpoche, will be giving teachings throughout the event. As Buddhists, we attend teachings to gain wisdom to overcome our ignorant minds as we journey on our path to enlightenment. Something special about receiving teachings in an immersive setting is that it allows us the time and space to contemplate the Dharma. 

Various topics relating to Vajrayana and Guru Rinpoche will be taught. Come and listen to our Guru's teachings live and online to receive the precious nectar of wisdom! 

 

About Guru Rinpoche

Odoo image and text block
Guru Rinpoche, also known as Padmasambhava (Lotus-Born Guru) is a fully enlightened being prophesied by Buddha Shakyamuni to spread Dharma in the age of degeneration. Guru Rinpoche is known to have performed many miracles and subdued spirits and demons to establish Samye Monastery, the first Buddhist monastery in Tibet.  He is also the central figure who taught Vajrayana Buddhism in the Himalayan region, bringing about the widespread prosperity of Dharma on the Tibetan plateau.

By engaging in Guru Rinpoche practices with great devotion, one can eliminate obstacles on the path and achieve success in Dharma endeavors as well as personal growth and breakthroughs.


During this event, we will be reciting the following prayers, with commentary and guidance by Singha Rinpoche: 

• Guru Rinpoche Mantra 
《莲花生大士心咒》

• Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche
《莲师金刚七句祈请颂》

• Prayer to Guru Rinpoche for Removing Obstacles and Fulfilling Wishes 《莲师意乐除障成就祈请颂》

• Guru Rinpoche Tsog Offering
