Million Mani Accumulation

May 23 @ 5:00 am - October 8 @ 11:30 pm

One Million Mani Project 2024

We will be reciting and collecting Mani Mantras until we reach One Million Mantras starting on the Wheel Day of Saga Dawa Düchen. All who take part will receive the merit of a million manis. Count your mantras, whether on the cushion, or standing in a queue, and add them to the total.

The project will be dedicated to the swift return of Akong Tulku Rinpoche, the health and long life of Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche, and all sentient beings.

This is the third year we are undertaking this project.

We will start accumulating the mantras on the full moon of the fourth lunar month, which is known as the month of merits. It is the holiest month in Tibetan Buddhism, when the birth, enlightenment and parinirvana of the historical Buddha is commemorated. This year, the full moon falls on the 23rd of May. This day is known as Saga Dawa Düchen in Tibetan, and Wesak in Sanscrit/Pali.

During this month prayers, practice and other virtuous deeds are encouraged, including practising generosity and refraining from harming any sentient beings.

Please email your Mani numbers to johannesburg@kagyu.org.za or enter your mani numbers on the spreadsheet.

You may also dedicate your mantras to specific people – you may add their names to the prayer list here.


“The four arms and hands signify the four immeasurables: immeasurable loving kindness, immeasurable compassion, immeasurable joy, and immeasurable equanimity. Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Boundless Compassion, is the very embodiment and realization of the four immeasurables. The four immeasurables are the vehicles through which Chenrezig benefits beings.” Dodrupchen Rinpoche, in Pelling, Sikkim 2019
