法王噶瑪巴應邀前往距上密院二百公里遠，位於古盧喜馬恰區邦塔山頂的大樂法輪寺（Dechen Chokhorling Mahavira DCM)，做為期四天的弘法活動。
His Holiness visited Dechen Chokhorling Mahavira (DCM) from 21-25 October, 2007. DCM, approximately 200 kms away from Gyuto, is situated on a hilltop in Bhuntar, District Kullu Himachal Pradesh. DCM is a Drukpa Kagyu lineage Monastery. The head of the DCM is His Eminence Choegon Rinpoche. Rinpoche invited His Holiness to consecrate the main shrine hall and its core Buddha statue.
十月二十一日，法王噶瑪巴一行人抵達 DCM 即受到康楚仁波切、確公仁波切、卓千仁波切、竹古確嘉仁波切、蘇曼祖古、邦塔西藏福利辦公室、桑布達學校的校長及所有迎接隊伍的熱烈歡迎。隨即法王進入大殿接受曼達獻供及傳統的西藏酥茶甜飯。
21st October, 2007: On the arrival at the DCM, His Holiness was received and escorted by Khamtrul Rinpoche, Choegon Rinpoche, Dorzong Rinpoche, Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche, Somang Tulku, the Bhuntar Tibetan Welfare Officer and Principal of Sambhota School with all the Serbang. The nearby Sambhota Tibetan school assembly presented “Tashi Shoepa” (the auspicious welcoming dance). Following the arrival of His Holiness in the main shrine hall Mandala offerings and tea were offered with sweet rice.
22nd October: His Holiness performed the prayer of “Gyal wa ja tson yang sab konchok chidue” and led the consecration of the main shrine hall’s core Buddha statue, Khamtrul Rinpoche, Choegon Rinpoche, Drozong Rinpoche, Drgu Choegyal Rinpoche and Somang Tulku were also present at the puja. The puja continued for whole day.
23rd October: In the morning, His Holiness visited the Shambala Art School, which is nearby DCM. His Holiness observed the Tibetan Thangka paintings and consecrated the school. Afterwards, His Holiness, along with Khamtrul Rinpoche, Choegon Rinpoche, Dorzong Rinpoche and Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche, enjoyed tea outside at the lawn. In the afternoon, His Holiness gave the initiation of Buddha Avalokteshvara, and also gave talk about the meaning of the “Om Mani Padme Hung” and its importance, advising the audience that in his view, being a better human is the true import of the Buddha’s dharma.
下午，法王給予大眾觀音菩薩的灌頂，蜂湧而至前來接受灌頂的僧俗信眾約有一萬人左右。法王開示觀音心咒『Om Mani Padme Hung』的意義和其重要性，法王也提到了修學佛法的首要即是先使自己成為好人。為了服務來自喜馬拉雅區域的當地居民們 ，法會現場特別提供了印度語的翻譯。法王噶瑪巴也親自地為所有參加灌頂的僧俗信眾一一灌頂加持。灌頂法會最後在受灌者的法喜充滿中圓滿結束。
This initiation and puja was translated into Hindi as almost ten thousand persons from near and around this Himalayan region gathered for this initiation. After finishing the initiation, His Holiness gave blessings to each person individually. People in this region keep their faith in the dharma strong, and everybody shared the bliss of the guru’s empowering blessing.
