Shine brightly by connecting with Lhamo Cundi through this sublime spiritual experience; gain abundant merits and dispel immense inauspiciousness!
As advised by H.E. Jhado Rinpoche, Lhamo Cundi is the patron deity of Thekchen Choling. He had especially transmitted the esoteric lineage of Lhamo Cundi to our Spiritual Director Singha Rinpoche, thus establishing a direct connection between our temple and Cundi practice.
During the Grand Sanctification Ceremony of Cundi, we make strong supplications to Cundi as a group. Throughout the entire ceremony lasting three days and two nights, Lhamo Cundi’s short mantra “Om Tsale Tsule Cundi Svaha” will be chanted continuously. Practicing collectively like this greatly magnifies our efforts, bestowing multitudes of blessings and benefits. Through this powerful ceremony, we pray for the happiness of all sentient beings, long and stable lives of our Lineage Gurus, as well as the quick fruition of all our virtuous wishes and that of our sponsors’ and devotees’.
Come participate in this prayer ceremony with us—for those who cultivate a strong link with her, through effective practice she will lead us all the way to enlightenment.
Our Patron Deity - Lhamo Cundi
In this short clip, Singha Rinpoche shares how Lhamo Cundi came to be the patron deity of Thekchen Choling.
✾ BENEFITS OF THIS CUNDI CEREMONY ✾
Cundi has been highly revered since ancient times for her powerful blessings in granting spiritual and worldly successes. Hence, one may request Cundi to gain Dharma realizations, growth in businesses or personal careers, having a harmonious family, or having good interpersonal relationships through making offerings and supplicating to Cundi in this ceremony.
Through sincere cultivation with Arya Cundi, we can purify mountains of negative karma, including karma accumulated from our broken vows. Cundi helps to dispel misunderstandings and hatred within us and towards others that has risen from holding onto wrong views. Also, Cundi protects us from life obstacles caused by non-human entities and is able to transform all adverse conditions into auspicious ones.
✾ HOW TO PARTICIPATE ✾
Join Us On-Site 现场参与
The annual Grand Sanctification Ceremony of Cundi is held on-site at Thekchen Choling Singapore’s main hall, where we recite a sadhana led by a member of the sangha within our allocated two-and-a half hour time slots. The key section of the sadhana is where we recite Lhamo Cundi’s long mantra 100 times and then proceed to accumulate Lhamo Cundi’s short mantra.
The opening of this ceremony starts on 20 Oct 2023, followed by overlapping sessions staggered in a relay format all the way to its auspicious completion on 22 Oct 2023. Participants can choose to join any of the sessions to be part of our continuous supplication to Lhamo Cundi.
At the final session of this ceremony on 22 Oct 2023, a Nectar Offering to Dharma Protectors ritual will be held to mark the auspicious completion.
