“Vajra Guru Dhongdrup 2010”One of the annual mega event at the statue of Guru Padmasambhava at Samdruptse Hill, Namchi, South Sikkim, India started on 03.10.2010 and concluded on 17.10.2010. Devotees and monks from all over Sikkim, Darjeeling, Kalimpong and other places participated in the ceremony. Over 120 Millions of Vajra Guru Mantra were recited during the period. This year the ceremony was graced by H.E.Domang Yangthang Rinpoche and H.E.Serdup Dungzin Rinpoche. Dorji Lobon, Khenpos and other senior monks from most of the monasteries also attended the ceremony. On 12.10.2010 Dr.Pawan Chamling, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Sikkim graced the ceremony. On 17.10.2010 H.E.Domang Yangthang Rinpoche initiated “wang” to the monks and devotees.
Recitation of Vajra Guru Mantra were done all over the world, as far as Mexico and the counts were provided to the organising committee. All the counts provided were included in this year’s version. Organising Committee extends its sincere gratitude to all those who participated in the process and regret in our inability to do so individually.
Our sincere gratitude to our Hon’ble Chief Minister, Dr.Pawan Chamling, who is also our Chief Patron. Ceremony of this magnitude is only possible due to his support and encouragement. May he live long.
We also like to express our sincere thanks to all Dorji Lobon, Khenpos and Head Lamas of all monasteries for their presence, support and guidance. We cannot forget our monks, anyis and devotees who despite indifferent climate of samdruptse, attended the ceremony and were always smiling.All our volunteers from Namchi and adjoining areas deserves Kudos for a job well done. It is indeed an example of a responsibility shouldered and executed well by a team.
We must look for our mistakes as a source of learning. We know, despite our best efforts, we failed at several quarters. We will definitely try to rectify these mistakes in our next edition of Vajra Guru Dhongdrup. Any inconvinience caused to any monks, devotees, tourists is sincerely regretted.
Please join us in our next edition of Vajra Guru Dhongdrup 2011.
MAY GURU RINPOCHE BLESS YOU ALL.
