Empowerment and Blessing of Sherab Mawe Senge with His Holiness 34th Menri Trizin Lungtok Dawa Dhargye

Sunday August 11, 10am-1pm

Olmo Ling Bon Center & Institute, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217

This event is full. Registration has been closed.

His Holiness will offer the empowerment and blessing of the wisdom deity Sherab Mawe Senge at Olmo Ling temple. The benefit of having a spiritual teacher is that the student can receive the three transmissions – the instruction, reading transmission, and empowerment – from the teacher. His Holiness is the 34th Abbot of Menri and spiritual head of Bon. Traditionally, the abbots of Menri are manifestations of Sherab Mawe Senge. Therefore, receiving this empowerment from His Holiness is especially powerful and holds a lot of merit.

We are deeply honored to be hosting His Holiness the 34th Menri Trizin from August 5-12 as part of his first world tour. Please join us for this precious opportunity to spend time with His Holiness and build a connection with the worldwide spiritual leader of Tibet’s ancient Bon tradition.

Tempa Lama would like to especially invite all his students and their family members, including children. Receiving this empowerment of the wisdom deity from His Holiness will have great benefits for you and your family for this life and for the future.

Teaching venue, accessibility, and local accommodations

The empowerment is held at Olmo Ling Bon Center and Institute. Founded by Tempa Dukte Lama, Olmo Ling is a Bon temple and practice center that is formally affiliated with Menri Monastery. Olmo Ling previously hosted visits of the late His Holiness 33rd Menri Trizin during 2011 and 2013. Tempa Dukte Lama studied closely with the late HH 33rd Menri Trizin from a young age. He is the author of four books and teaches in the US, Mexico, Canada, and Europe.
