On 18th June 2019, when Khyentse Rinpoche’s birth anniversary, as per the western calendar, was celebrated in different parts of the world, it was also celebrated at Rinpoche’s abode—Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Institute—like every year where the ritual of the thousand offerings to Ushnishavijaya is performed for Rinpoche’s long life and for the flourishment of Rinpoche’s all enlightened activities without bias. This year also, keeping all academic classes closed, Rinpoche’s birth anniversary was celebrated with the performing of the ritual of the thousand offerings to Ushnishavijaya, in the presence of His Eminence Dungsey Avikrita Vajra Rinpoche and His Eminence Dungsey Abhaya Vajra Rinpoche, by the whole sangha of the institute.

The teachers and students enjoyed the cake together. The students were introduced about the brief biography of Rinpoche by Mr. Ngawang Mindrol, the teacher, and were shown the movie known as ‘The Cup’ as a part of the celebration.
