Events at Garchen Institute 2015

April 25-27, 2015 (9am – 5pm): Chenrezig Million Mantra Accumulation.

Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, and is known by many different names, including Avalokiteshvara in India, Kuan-yin in China, and Kannon in Japan. It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in Chenrezig’s mantra, and it carries with it the power to purify our mind’s obscurations. We develop the enlightened quality of compassion through Chenrezig practice and mantra recitation as well as by compassionate conduct toward all beings.

The Thousand-Armed Chenrezig represents the fullest realization of the ability to generate compassion, with a thousand eyes to see suffering in all its forms, a thousand mouths to generate compassionate speech and recite the mantra, and a thousand limbs to offer assistance to limitless suffering sentient beings. By chanting Chenrezig’s mantra for many days at a time, practitioners acquire a vast amount of merit, which is then dedicated toward the enlightenment of all beings.

His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche has said that anyone who participates in the million mantra accumulation—no matter how many mantras they are able to recite—receives the full merit for a million. No prior experience is necessary to participate.

Please join us for this Chenrezig Million Mantra Accumulation, participating in all or part as your schedule permits, or recite the mantra at home and enter your daily totals into the counter on the garchen.net home page (the counter is now active). For more information or reservations, or to inquire about work-study opportunities or lodging, please call 928-925-1237 or email: questions@garchen.net.
