FPMT News Around the World
While in California during September, Lama Zopa Rinpoche blessed the sentient beings in the ocean near his house, Kachoe Dechen Ling, in Aptos. Rinpoche stood on the wharf, holding a rope tied to a giant Namgyälma board that was in the ocean. Rinpoche explained to the Sangha accompanying him the visualization for the blessing and then chanted the mantra of Chenrezig.
