10th Annual Mantra-Thon
for World Peace and Healing:
Guru Rinpoche Teachings, Practice
and Mantra Accumulation
May 23 - June 5, 2020
Dear Sangha and Friends,
Tulku Orgyen Rinpoche and Odiyana Institute are pleased to announce our 10th Annual Mantra-Thon for World Peace and Healing! Due to the devastating impacts of this year's COVID-19 pandemic on the physical, mental, social and economic health of countless people around the world, profound compassionate methods of spiritual practice are needed more than ever.
Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche and other living masters of Tibetan Buddhism have stated that the most powerful and important practices to be doing for these times are those associated with Guru Rinpoche (Padmasambhava). As such, this year's Mantra-Thon is even more timely, since we will be focusing on Guru Rinpoche practice and mantra. As usual, we hold the collective goal of reciting OM AH HUM VAJRA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM, 1,000,000 times.

The Mantra-Thon is always free of charge. However, donations to support Tulku Rinpoche's activities in the Hidden Land of Pemakod are very much appreciated. Please click here to make a donation.
Please submit your mantras for the entire 15 day period as a single total number to [email protected] NO LATER than 10:00 AM on June 5
In the body of your email, please include only the following:
Total number of mantras recited
Optional - total number of Seven Line Prayers recited
Optional - specific name(s) of loved one(s) for dedication of merit
We encourage everyone to recite as many Vajra Guru mantras as possible outside the formal online sessions.
If you would like to accumulate Seven Line Prayers as well, please submit the number you recited during the Mantra-Thon, which will be announced as a separate total during the Dedication Ceremony. Individual practitioners may also submit their total recitations to sevenlineprayer.com, which has an ongoing worldwide goal to accumulate 21 billion.
We hope you will join us for this precious opportunity! May all beings benefit!

This looks great. I have not received any empowerment yet, though. Can I still participate?
