Simdha Getul Rinpoche went to Indonesia on August 3, for his annual dharma teaching. Rinpoche and his entourage reached Indonesia on August 3 and on the very next day, according to our lunar calendar, it was the holy day of Choekhor Duchen - _The Festival of Turning the Wheel of Dharma" during which Simdha Getul Rinpoche led the Life Release activity along with the Indonesia dharma Students. Rinpoche especially tries to lead as many as life release activity irrespective of day and month of the calendar. Life Release activity of numerous benefit but as said by great master of our time - Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche that release of lives will have exceptional impact to the place where it is done as well such as sickness among the people and the livestock will cease, harvest will be plenty and the life will be long. Every being will enjoy happiness and wellbeing in abundance and at death, letting go of the deluded experiences, one will find an excellent rebirth in the higher realms. And ultimately, there will be no doubt that this practice of live release will lead one to find the supreme and perfect state of awakening. We would like to dedicate the merit of such meritorious activity to all sentient beings and pray that they all come to practise enlightened actions. May all sentient beings be happy. May all the lower realms be empty forever. Where ever the Boddhisattvas live, may this prayer be realized.
Besides that, there was many teachings that was imparted to his students in Jakarta during his stay in there and also gave few empowerments, few of them was given in private with the criteria necessary to receive and others were imparted to the public for three days. During one of the days, Minling Dorsem (Neylung) Puja was practiced for the deceased disciples and their families.
In conclusion of his dharma activity in Jakarta, Simdha Getul Rinpoche and his disciples in Indonesia practices thousand Ganachakra Offering Puja on the final day. Ganachakra Puja is one of the main practice of Simdha Getul Rinpoche, he never miss to practice Ganachakra Puja. Every pilgrimage he goes to, every teachings, every visit to the new place - he makes it the point to practice the ganachakra puja and annually once he does the practice of 100 thousand of the Ganachakra puja in one of the holy places. The main benefit of Tsok practice (Ganachakra) mentioned in the tantras is the accumulation of merit with conceptual focus as well as the accumulation of wisdom beyond focus. In the termas, we also find mention of unimaginable benefits. There could be no greater benefit than this. For example, it is said that Guru Rinpoche himself will come and bless the tsok practitioners, or that the place where tsok is performed will become exactly the same as the Zangdokpalri heaven of Guru Rinpoche. And Khandro Yeshey Tsogyal said that to practice tsok just once closes the door to lower rebirths. Practise of Ganachakra Puja removes all the obstacles and wish fulfilling. It is also considered that one Ganachakra puja done has greater benefit than hundreds of Puja of Invoking of wealth.
After Jakarta, Rinpoche will be leading dharma activities in Bali and Palembang - in the southern Sumatra province.
Here we dedicate all the merit accumulated to all sentient beings in the future, May all of us be always guided by kind and holy Gurus until cyclic existence ends, May the beneficial teachings not be blown away by the wind of superstitions.May the entire world be filled with people who have understood and found firm faith in the true teachings and May we not only understand the three most important Buddhism view of form, emptiness and non-duality but be able to live the view and eventually, understood it fully.
