Garchen Rinpoche has said: “Everyone who has contributed to the 100-Million Amidewa Mantra Accumulation, whether by actually attending the retreat, or by offering mantras from all over the world, or by offering financial support to the retreat, or even by merely rejoicing in the virtue of this practice, has obtained the merit of 100-million mantra recitations.”
Garchen Rinpoche encourages everyone around the world to start reciting Amitabha’s mantra now.
