On Sunday the 6th of May, 2012, Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche celebrates his 72nd birthday. Every 12th year is an important one within the astrological Tibetan Calendar and this year the 6th May will be the Dragon day of the Dragon month of the Dragon year.
As it is a special year for Rinpoche, the Samye Ling Sangha and all those who have completed a long retreat will do three days of Chod practice as a celebration and offering to Rinpoche on this very special day.We hope that many of the people who have completed a long retreat will participate. Everyone is welcome to come to support and enjoy this beautiful and inspiring practice.
There will be two sessions of the long Chod on each of Friday 4th and Saturday 5th May, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and the prayers will finish with a grand Tsok on the morning of Sunday 6th May.
