Tenshug Offering to His Holiness The Dalai Lama

28th September – Tsuglakhang, Dharamsala.

This morning, the Central Tibetan Administration, on behalf of Tibetans inside and outside Tibet, offered a tenshug (long-life prayer offering) to the Dalai Lama.

The heads of all schools of Tibetan Buddhism including the Bon tradition gathered together in the main temple to unanimously offer the tenshug. The four-hour-long prayer was led by the Sakya Trizin; he was supported by the Gyalwang Karmapa and Drikung Kyabgon representing Kagyu, the Gaden Tripa representing Gelug, Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche representing the Nyingma and Menri Trizin representing Bon.

This tenshug was organized at the end of the Second Special Meeting of Tibetans (September 25-28) which had been called by the Kashag and Tibetan Parliament in Exile in order to hold extensive discussions on campaign ideas and plans for action by exile Tibetans in light of the critical situation inside Tibet.
