Offerings on Buddhist Festivals.
We are joyfully celebrating three years of Rigul Trust with suggestions for beautiful offerings that will accumulate merit in order to bring great benefit to the welfare of all beings.
By way of expressing heart felt gratitude to Ringu Tulku, Ani Sherab is dedicating her practice to Rigul Trust on each of the upcoming major Buddhist Festivals (when actions are many thousand times more powerful) and making an offering of £108.
Ani-la is inviting us all, as part of Rinpoche’s mandala worldwide, to have fun by coming together where ever we are on these auspicious days, offering whatever we can joyfully using the auspicious number 108.

This inspiring anniversary offering allows all of us to join in with the great spirit of belonging to one family worldwide, dedicating whatever practice we do and giving what we can on the Festival Days to Rigul Trust and to its’ continued success in supporting so many worthwhile projects.
We may like to do this individually or in a group making offerings, generating the merit and dedicating it to the welfare of all beings.
We will announce each of these Buddhist Festivals as they approach.
Rigul Trust 3rd Anniversary Celebration begins with the first of these Buddhist Festivals, The Buddha reveals the Kalachakra Teachings,
on Tuesday 17th May.
Offering to Rigul Trust of the day’s practice:
