Long Life Puja for Choden Rinpoche.
We regret that due to various reasons, it was not possible to
schedule this on a weekend, but we hope that everyone will be able to
take the morning off work and attend. It is much more auspicious
for creating the causes for the Holy Guru's long life if a great
number of people can attend this puja! Rinpoche has manifested
unbelievable kindness, love and compassion in giving these five weeks
of teachings offering this Puja is one way we can reply this
kindness and extend our Holy Guru's life.

Long Life Puja. I apologise for not sending this list out on the
