A big thank you to all the members from the 3 Centres who participated in the inaugural event together for the Release of Life and Naga Vases Offering at Port Klang. It was truly a meaningful get together, above all, we could see everyone had a fabulous time and many happy faces. Particularly, we performed very meaningful and meritorious acts in the propagation of Dharma. I could feel the joy in our Guru, H.E Thrangu Rinpoche.
I must also acknowledge all those who have assisted in the preparation and planning. The committee of TDSPJ especially Pearly the Treasurer and Richard Lau, the Organising Chairman, worked tirelessly and meticulously. I must mention Mrs. Lo from Ipoh Centre and Jennifer Chuah both of whom went extra miles to secure the supply and deliveries of the vases. Above all, Lama Lodro who single handedly sourced for the materials, filled and consecrated the vases to make the event possible. If I have left out anyone, I must apologise due to failing memory and not intention.
Last but not least my heartfelt gratitude to all sponsors that spread as far as Canada to Yangon.
I am pleased to announce the Naga vase Offering to the sea has never been done before in the history of TDSPJ. We are now doing the rituals for the first time. It is indeed an auspicious and very meritorious event. Those who have signed up to take part do not waste this opportunity of immense blessings from the Nagas both to you and your family. Do not let any obstacles especially the requirements of Mahayana vegetarian deter you from participating. Furthermore, it’s another social event to foster better understanding and relationships with your Dharma brothers. We experienced tremendous joy in our last trip to Cameron with our brothers and sisters from Seremban. Another milestone for this programme, is that, for the first time we are conducting an event together with the 3 Thrangu centres in peninsula Malaysia. This shows our unity and brotherhood (and of course, sisterhood) in the propagation of the Dharma in our Guru’s image and name. The greatest joy to our Guru is for him to see his disciples taking part in Dharma activities.
Yours in Dharma,
