Pilgrimage to Tibet on September 15-19, 2011

In September, 2011, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche led 226 disciples of Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center travelling to Tibet and had an audience with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang, who personally bestowed each disciple the blessings as well as an exquisite prayer scarf (Khata), a string of prayer beads, and silk paintings of Buddhist scenes (Thangkas). Furthermore, on September 18, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche led the disciples to the Drikung Thel Monastery and was heartedly greeted by the monastery lamas with most honorable hospitality. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche led the disciples to perform the Vajrasattva Dharma at the main hall, and ritual of Dharma Protector Achi at the Dharma Protector Hall. At that moment, the sky showed an auspicious sign that it shone, and rained, and snowed at the same time. There were also many big black vultures hovered above Dharma Protector Hall. These signified that the Gods, Nagas, and Dharma Protector praised Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s immense merits, which benefit countless sentient beings.
