Every month on the full moon the Puja Fund sponsors the offering of robes, made of the most precious material, to the most holy Buddha Statue in Mahabodhi temple, Bodhgaya, India, this is something amazing to rejoice in, to mentally offer and dedicate towards and also something you can also participate in by donating any amount ... How amazing!
During the robe offering, students and Sangha from Root Institute offer prayers and practices including verses like this from the Nyung Nä Sadhana:
In order to purify my mind, I offer an exquisite precious garment,
Multicolored like Indra’s variegated bow,
That when touched becomes the cause of bliss
May I be adorned with the holy garment of patience.
OM VAJRA VASTRAYE AH HUM SVAHA
As Lama Zopa Rinpoche has quoted from the White Lotus Sutra:
Even just making one sound, or a cymbal offering
Even just offering one single flower
To the form of one who has gone to bliss (buddha) on a stone wall,
Even if they make the offering with an angry attitude
Those living beings will gradually see ten million buddhas.
The above quote was extracted from "Benefits of Having Many Holy Objects," by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
Tremendous thanks to Root Institute who arrange this monthly.
