“Sariputra, if there are people who have already made the vow, who now make the vow, or who are about to make the vow, ‘I desire to be born in Amitabha’s country,’ these people, whether born in the past, now being born, or to be born in the future, all will irreversibly attain to anuttarasamyaksambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all good men and good women, if they are among those who have faith, should make the vow, ‘I will be born in that country.’”

~ Amitabha Sutra

When I obtain the Buddhahood, any being of the boundless and inconceivable Buddha-worlds of the ten quarters whose body if be touched by the rays of my splendour should not make his body and mind gentle and peaceful, in such a state that he is far more sublime than the gods and men, then may I not attain the enlightenment.

~ Amitabha Buddha's Thirty-Third Vow

Please Sign This Online Petition to Keep Om Retreat Alive!

Late Drubwang Rinpoche during one of the previous Retreats.

Text of the petition is as follows:

To: Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery

THE 100 MILLION MANI RECITATION RETREAT was held annually by Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery of Singapore (PKS) for some 5 years, and have since became an inseparable part of our spiritual lives. Unfortunately, there's news that PKS might not hold the Retreat this year 2008.

This year's retreat was shadowed by His Eminence Drubwang Rinpoche's passing away in Singapore, a day before the Retreat itself. He had passed away on the same day he landed in Singapore. Despite bad health and much dissuasion from other Rinpoches, Drubwang Rinpoche insisted on his journey to Singapore lead the Retreat.

It was specifically explained by His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche during the Retreat that it is Drubwang Rinpoche's wish for the Om Retreat to continue year after year, after his passing.

I personally believe his choice to pass away a day before this event has great significance and he might have foreseen that after his passing, this greatly beneficial event will end abruptly. I also felt strongly Rinpoche's love for all beings. His teaching and message put forth through his actions are too profound and wide for me to put into words here.

Please send the message to all who cares for Dharma to appeal to the management of Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery NOT to let this annual Retreat end. Email them, write to them, approach and talk to them. Let them recognize that this is no longer just a PKS event, but a precious inheritance left behind by Drubwang Rinpoche and PKS management has the responsibility to keep it alive.
