It is the personal wish of Ven. Shangpa Rinpoche that all of his disciples, devotees and fervent supporters attend this grand and auspicious ceremony. Rinpoche extends his most sincere invitation to all. Rinpoche very much looks forward to seeing many of you in Kirtipur, Nepal.

This most special day marks an important milestone in Ven. Shangpa Rinpoche’s tireless quest and compassionate vision to benefit all sentient beings. It is on this day that the fruit of many years of hard work, planning and selfless personal sacrifices that Rinpoche and his countless followers across the world have made will bear fruti and become a reality.

It is a truly rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be in the midst of the most blessed presence of so many highly accomplished masters and holy beings.
