FPMT News Around the World
The community at Nalanda Monastery in France recently completed 1,020 sessions of the 16 Arhat puja in order to benefit the health of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The monastery reports that they began doing the pujas after the Chenrezig retreat with Khadro-la in late August. They each did five daily sessions and recited the “Panacea of Pure Nectar” and long life prayers for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Lama Zopa Rinpoche after almost every session.
“It was very nice and an honor that we could do it for Rinpoche’s health,” said Ven. Tendar, monastery director. “[We] hope Rinpoche will fully recover very soon, and we hope he might be able to teach again as much as he wants, in the way that he wants and wherever he wants. And of course we hope he will have a very long life, and that we may be able to fulfill all his wishes.”
