Puja in State of Punjab, India, 2007

At the end of February, 2007, at the request of Indian Sikh, H. E. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche held two great pujas: one to transmit the practice of Avalokiteshvara in the Punjab State and a great Amitabha puja for transferring consciousness in New Delhi. These two pujas in the Sikh community were the grandest ones ever held by a master of Tibetan Buddhism. The Avalokiteshvara puja on February 25 was attended by nearly 700 people. Touched by the great compassion and vast wisdom of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, the locals held Rinpoche in great reverence and hence aspired after Buddhist teachings.
