Summary on 11th 100 Million Mani Recitation Retreat 2011

“Dear Participants,

The total number of ‘live’ recitations and contributions from participants at home and around the world is 67,733,188 (as of 6pm on 26 Dec 2011). This number has been confirmed by an independent group of counters and auditors selected from within the retreat participants at the beginning of the retreat.

Though at the present moment, we still fall short of the targeted 100 million recitations, it was nonetheless an excellent effort by each and every one of you.  Let’s give ourselves a round of applause for all the effort that we have put in over the last 4 days.

Really, there is no cause for despair or disappointment. Recall, at the beginning of this retreat, we have highlighted that speed of recitation isn’t our primary concern.  Also in H.E. Drubwang Rinpoche’s teachings, He has taught that it is more important to pronounce every syllable of the mantra clearly.

You may have notice the intentional slow down in our recitation speed for this year’s retreat. This is in hope that every participant will be able to keep up with the recitation and pronounce the mantra completely and clearly, eventually internalizing the mantra in our hearts.

His Eminence Thritsab Rinpoche will be returning to Singapore in February 2012. From now till then, I urge every one of you to continue your Mani recitations diligently. Please submit your Mani recitation counts during this period electronically or through phone-call to us by 3rd Feb 2012. **

As the recitation period will be spread over the New Year, I hope that the merits from the recitations will bring many blessings to you, your family and all sentient beings in the coming year. 

On behalf of the Mani Retreat Association, I would like to convey our sincere thanks to His Eminence Thritsab Rinpoche and the group of Drikung Kagyu lamas who have selflessly led and guided us throughout the duration of this retreat.          

We would also like to thank Suntec City. Without their support, conducting the retreat at this convenient location would not be possible.

The Mani Retreat Association is also grateful to the group of generous sponsors. Your donations have certainly helped to ensure this event’s success.

We would also like to thank our dedicated volunteers for giving their time and energy to support this event.

And of course, THANK YOU to all participants. Without all of you and your sincere efforts, this event will not be possible and successful. Thank you.

The Mani Retreat Association committee members would also like to sincerely apologise for any inconveniences we have caused anyone in the process of planning for and during the retreat. We will strive to do better next time.

Now, let’s rejoice in all our efforts and dedicate the merits accumulated to all sentient beings!”

位于2011年12月26日,下午六时时分,我们的闭关禅修现场念诵总次数是67,733,188  。这个数字包括在家中和全球各地的参加者所汇报的念诵次数。我们在闭关禅修开始前已经选出了一组念诵计算员及审计员。这个数字就是由这个独立小组的组员确认的。



您可能已经察觉到, 我们在这次闭关禅修刻意的将念诵速度慢了下来。这是希望在座的每一位参加者能够跟得上念诵及完整并清楚的将咒语念出,最终让六字大明咒深深的融入内心。

尊贵的摄政王赤札仁波切将在2012年2月份回返新加坡。从现在到2月,我希望你们每一位能继续勤奋的念诵观音心咒。请将您在这段期间所念诵的次数201223日之前以电邮或电话的方式汇报。 **




嘛呢共修协会也很感谢所有的功德主。因为有了您们的热心善款, 我们更能顺利完成这项活动。
