In 2014, Indian FPMT students heard Malaysian and Singaporean students chant Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s name mantra in Mundgod, India, and wished to learn how to do the same. Long-time student Ven. Kabir Saxena suggested that they use an Indian tune instead, since the mantra is in Sanskrit. A Sanskrit chant teacher helped them to compose a tune for the mantra and Indian students were later able to offer this to welcome Rinpoche into the teaching hall when Rinpoche visited Bangalore in December 2016.
In January 2017, FPMT India national coordinator Deepthy Shekhar shared a beautiful recording of her chanting the mantra for the use of all of Rinpoche’s students.
Through comprehensive study programs, practice materials, training seminars, and scholarships, FPMT Education nourishes the development of compassion, wisdom, kindness, and true happiness in individuals of all ages.
