Request from His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche:

“Due to various hindrances H.H. Karmapa has been encountering recently, Kagyu Lineage has faced one of the worst obstacles unheard of in its history; H.E. Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche therefore instructed for all to chant ‘Karmapa Chenno’ contributing to the removal of hindrances against HHK’s retreat and obstacles against the lineage, as well as to pray for HHK’s return to Rumtek Monastery, longevity of all genuine Gurus from all lineages and their continuous turning the wheel of Dharma. With this merit, we dedicate to world peace, as well as the ultimate happiness and liberation of all mother-like sentient beings.”

The goal is to collectively accumulate 100 Million Karmapa Khyenno recitations from around the world by July 3rd. Rigpe Dorje Centre (Montreal) will keep count from those gathering at the Centre during the designated scheduled times, as well as from our members and friends reciting the mantra at home.
