MANI RETREAT and an Empowerment in the Four-Armed Avalokiteshvara
under the Guidance of Söpa Rinpoche


08. – 15.06.2019

We are delighted to announce that Söpa Rinpoche will lead at Milarepa Retreat Center the first MANI RETREAT. We are also very happy and grateful to announce that Söpa Rinpoche will come and lead the MANI Retreat yearly.

 

ABOUT THE 100 MILLION MANI RECITATION RETREAT

The Singapore 100 Million Mani Recitation Retreat was initiated by the late H.E. Drubwang Rinpoche in the year 2001. Since then, more than 10,000 people have participated in this auspicious retreat.

Participants will gather to recite the six syllabus mantra OM MANI PADME HUNG, which is the heart mantra of Avalokiteshvara (Guan Yin Bodhisattva). Through the power of the mantra and individual’s effort, one will begin to uncover the excellent qualities of Avalokiteshvara from within oneself. By purifying one’s body, speech and mind, one may experience inner peace, compassion and wisdom.

It is taught that the merit of reciting even one OM MANI PADME HUNG is inconceivable. Doing this practice will help to close the doors of the six realms of cyclic existence. Sentient beings will gradually be free from sufferings, gain rebirth in the Buddha’s pureland and eventually attain full enlightenment.

As this is a group practice, the merits individual participant receive is equivalent to the vast merits of reciting 100 million Mani mantras,
