༈ དམིགས་མེད་བརྩེ་བའི་གཏེར་ཆེན་སྤྱན་རས་གཟིགས། །
དྲི་མེད་མཁྱེན་པའི་དབང་པོ་འཇམ་དཔལ་དབྱངས། །
བདུད་དཔུང་མ་ལུས་འཇོམས་མཛད་གསང་བའི་བདག །
གངས་ཅན་མཁས་པའི་གཙུག་རྒྱན་ཙོང་ཁ་པ། །
བློ་བཟང་གྲགས་པའི་ཞབས་ལ་གསོལ་བ་འདེབས། །

Great treasury of non-referential compassion, Avalokiteshvara, 
Powerful lord of flawless wisdom, Manjushri, 
And destroyer of all the hosts of mara, Vajrapani, Lord of Secrets—
Crowning glory amongst all the learned masters of the Land of Snows,
Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa, at your feet I pray!

Sontsok will begin at 6:00 PM. Dinner will be served by Jampa Lathsang family. Thank you Jampa la! Please bring your own cup, plate, bowl and spoon for tea, salad and zhelthuk. They won't be provided to minimize garbage and to be environmentally dharmic. Thank you for your cooperation.
