It depends... A final message from Rinpoche : UPDATED
Published on 12 January 2015
Rinpoche's Losar 2014 wish was for the global sangha to accumulate 100 million recitations of the mantra of interdependent (dependent) arising over 2014 (read the Losar message here). From March to December, participants from all over the world reported their counts on a weekly basis to the worldwide representatives.
We are pleased to report that as of December 31, 2014, we have reached our goal with a total of 108,944,577 mantras accumulated.
Rinpoche has offered final words for those who participated: "I offer my gratitude and appreciation for the diligence and enthusiasm of all those who have recited the mantra of interdependent origination, and dedicate this for peace and harmony in the world and for the longevity and success of the endeavours of all bodhisattvas wherever they are. Through this merit may all beings be enlightened."
~ Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
