Blessing Ceremony for the Ksitigharba Statue

10 July @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEST

 ABOUT EVENT:

Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommended that Chenrezig Institute install a Ksitigarbha Statue for the benefit and harmony of all beings. 
Thus a life size sculpture of the statue was commissioned to be made overseas. Once it arrived in Chenrezig Institute, Garrey Foulkes painted the statue in beautiful bright colours. The CI Art Studio team and volunteers then prepared the statue for filling. Participants of the Nyung Na Retreat made a sterling effort to roll hundreds of mantras to fill the statue. Various  offerings were made to go inside the wealth vase and  medicinal herbs were picked and dried in preparation for the filling, all of which were given a preliminary blessing by Geshe la. 
 
This beautiful statue will be formally blessed in its place in the Stupa Temple of the Garden of Enlightenment.All are welcome to attend!
