May 27th The Gyalwa Karmapa Participates In A Smoke Offering Puja As Well As The Amitabha Jangchog Puja Before Beginning A Two Day Discourse On The 37 Practices Of A Bodhisattva In Singapore.

Most of the day on the 27th of May was spent performing pujas. His Holiness Karmapa oversaw the morning’s smoke offering puja (Phurab Choga) during the first half of the day. In the afternoon, The Gyalwa Karmapa presided over the Amitabha Jangchog Puja, a service performed for the deceased. Many present that afternoon claimed to see miraculous signs and auspicious omens in the sky. In fact, for a moment, the crowd began to swarm towards the open field, where the large tent is located for the main events in Singapore, to witness these phenomenal events first hand.

In the evening The Gyalwa Karmapa began His two day discourse on Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo’s 37 Practices of A Bodhisattva. In just 3 short hours His Holiness Karmapa was able to complete half of the text with in-depth commentary, managing to leave the audience of scholars, educated monks, Rinpoches and the lay Buddhist community of Singapore completely satisfied with plenty to contemplate.
