Fish Release Practice and blessings lead by Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche.

In Tibetan this practice is known as ‘tshe thar’, life release. Here you can buy fish in Nepal. The fish will be blessed with mantras and given myong grol (liberation through tasting), precious substances that give the animals a good cause for higher future rebirth. It is customary to save a number of animals equal to your age. So for example a 25 year old would save 25 fish. However, you can choose to save any number of animals that you want. Since a human being can commit no greater transgression than taking the life of another living being, by implication, there is no greater source of accumulating merit than saving life.
