100,000 recitations of the Bodhisattva’s Confession Prayers.
Rabjam Rinpoche and over a hundred Shechen monks and nuns gathered at the sacred site of Bodhgaya in India during the first week of December to chant 100,000 recitations of the Bodhisattva’s Confession Prayers. Rinpoche led the prayers, joined by Gyalse Rinpoche, Lama Lungrik Nyima, Matthieu Ricard and monastics and lay-people from all across Asia and the world.
This ceremony was first performed in 1975 when Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche invited a hundred monks to the Great Stupa to participate in the ceremony of 100,000 confession prayers. It is thanks to the wish of the Royal Grandmother of Bhutan, Gyalyum Kelzang Chodron Wangchuk, that this event once again took place.
