MAHA GURU BHUMTSOK at TANC (October 9 – 16, 2016).


Venerable Thupten Ngodup, the medium for the Nechung Oracle (Kuten), the State Oracle of Tibet will be presiding this religious ceremony.


[Bhumtsok is the Great Prayer and Feast Offering Ritual Practice based on the Vajrayana Tradition. Participating in it is an exceptional way to accumulate merit, purify negative mental states and karma to achieve Enlightenment or the State of Buddhahood for the sake of all sentient beings.  The offering itself will be accumulated over a hundred thousand times, which usually lasts for a few days.  This particular traditional ritual practice, which the Nechung monks will perform, is called  , which means ‘The Sadhana of the Lineage of Vidhyadharas” , and is dedicated to Guru Rinpoche and Tibet. The Great Fifth Dalai Lama took special interest in this practice for the benefit of the Tibetan people during his time in Tibet. Because of this, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama revived and officially instituted this practice at his monastery in Dharamsala. The Tibetan Religious Administration in Exile organizes this Guru Bhumtsok every year at the main Temple (Tsuglangkhng) in Dharamsala, India]. This tradition belongs to the Jang-Ter, Northern Treasure of Nyingma Tibetan Buddhist Order, in which Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche is the main lineage holder. The monks of Nechung Monastery have been practicing this tradition for many generations]. (Source:Nechung Buddhist Center)
