Prayer Gathering for World Peace
From 19 to 21 August 2022, Phuntsok Chö Ling will organize a prayer ceremony, or Mönlam, dedicated to world peace. We have recently been facing times of great conflict and volatility. Many people are dying and going through untold suffering due to the war in Ukraine. This war comes right after the Covid pandemic, which is not over yet and which has caused numerous deaths and tremendous upheaval throughout the world. We will dedicate the merit of the prayer ceremony to those who have died, to those who are ill and to those in anguish, so as to alleviate their pain.
The ceremony is held to commemorate the death anniversary of Lama Jigme’s own teacher, Akyong Siddhi Tulku, who was an extraordinary master and yogin of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism and a holder of the treasures of the lineage of Dudjom Lingpa. Lama Jigme especially received the phowa teachings from him; these are precious instructions regarding the transference of consciousness for the moment of death. During this prayer gathering, we will also honour two other great Nyingma masters who have recently passed away, Dodrupchen Rinpoche and the Dudjom Yangsi Sangye Pema Shepa.
Gathering to pray and to practise together with a single-minded intention is a cause of great spiritual merit, both for those directly present and for those who participate from afar. Everyone is wholeheartedly invited to join. Whatever our individual cultures, religions or beliefs might be, praying for peace is something that can unite us all in a spirit of compassion and kindness.
You can participate by joining us directly for this unique prayer gathering and/or by making a donation for specific persons (e.g. family members, loved ones, friends) who have passed away or who are facing painful circumstances. Even those who have passed away long ago can still benefit from the merit which we dedicate to them and the positive connection which we thereby establish. By sharing in this aspiration for peace, we can sow the seeds of inner and outer peace in our own and others’ minds.

The Centre Culturel Tibétain wishes you a happy Losar, the Tibetan New Year!
Lama Jigmé sends the following message:
To all my connections, students and anyone who sees this message I wish you a happy new year. I wish you all the best. And this is not just a wish. Tashi is Tibetan. It is an extremely meaningful word. It means for everything to be peaceful; a peaceful world, a peaceful society, a peaceful family, peaceful work and collogues. And wherever you go, to go peaceful and be well with a calm and happy mind and a good mood. This is like root power. For your mind to be more lovely, a more loving and kind attitude, so that everywhere you go you’ll accept and enjoy every moment. It is about being peaceful and aware. This is what it means to have a healthy mind. And this way “happy new year” is connected to a happy and well mind. Your family and friends will be happy and wherever you go and whatever you do, no matter what, your mind is always very well and you will manage any challenge. You will be able to easily deal with anything because your mind is extremely calm, powerful and peaceful. Love and compassion, to understand impermanence, all of this is power. You see, “Don’t worry be happy, tomorrow another day.” There are many ways to get a peaceful mind. And with that peaceful mind connect to society, you see, “happy new year” is about this. I wish this all to you. I hope you understand this all. I hope you can integrate your mind training this way. I wish that this Tibetan new year you will contemplate on this in your daily life and share this to benefit others wherever you go.
Lama Jigmé Namgyal
