Life release at Tirsuli River

Life Release at TirsuliOn 2 March 2013, Chokling Rinpoche and Phakchok Rinpoche, accompanied by senior monks from Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery, as well as young monks from Chapagaon and Riwoche monasteries, released more than 65,000 fishes into the Tirsuli River. Acts such as life release, are an important means to generate longevity, to enable us to perfect our Dharma practice in this life. It is also an act of compassion for the fish released, and they are given sacred blessing water before they are released into the river. The life release was sponsored by our sangha in Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, the sangha at Lerab Ling (France), as well as students of Rangjung Yeshe Institute, as well as our many dharma friends in Kathmandu.
