Losar 2018 Celebrating the New Year of the Earth Dog a new era for Benchen Monastery. H.E. Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche & Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi This great Losar celebration was very special for several reasons: This was the first Losar where both Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi celebrated together. This joyous occasion was attended by the mothers and fathers of both Rinpoches, along with the Benchen community. His Eminence Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche gave the precious oral transmission of the Jampal Tsenjö, Manjushri Prayer. According to Tibetan astrology this first day of the Tibetan New Year was a very suitable and perfect day for the start of great activities such as the education for the Yangsi. In particular, Rinpoche gave this transmission in order for Yangsi Rinpoche to be learned in his development. Prior to the transmission, Rinpoche purposely gave an introduction pointing out the importance of developing wisdom through the hearing, contemplation and meditation of the teachings of the Buddha. Rinpoche also talked about how to bring up a tulku; emphasising the need for those who are responsible for Yangsi's education to ensure that he is not spoiled by over-indulgence and gadgets. Then when Rinpoche lead the recitation of the Manjushri Prayer he filled the whole monastery with his voice. The ceremony concluded with the offering of khataks and presentation of khapse. Many devotees visited Rinpoche for the New Year and enjoyed Losar lunch.

Black Hat Drum Dance (Shanag Ngacham) choreographed by the Sixth Karmapa Thongwa Donden was performed on the 13th of February 2018 at Benchen Monastery as a part of the annual Mahakala Puja at the end of every year on (28.12.2144) according to Tibetan calendar presided over by H.E. Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche. For the first time Yangsi Tenga Rinpoche took part and eagerly observed the Lama Dance.
These pictures were taken before the departure to India in Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's room at the Benchen Monastery. You can see Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi holding his mala as if he were making a mo. That is amazing. Nobody has ever showed him how to do so.

==> Until now 1,655,139 Dharanis were recited (November 11, 2017). Thank you and please carry on!
Therefore His Holiness' sister, Jetsun Ngodup Palzom has invited all students, individuals, groups and centres to join in, and to accumulate recitations that will be said by them or their group over the next year (2016, the Tibetan year of the Fire Monkey) as an offering for the benefit of everyone. She is asking for a commitment from each individual or group who wishes to join in, meaning an accumulated number of recitations will be offered during the year by each individual or group.
The Sangha of Benchen Phuntsok Ling together with Dharmahaus Benchen Tashi Ling will accumulate 2,000,000 of the Dharanis for His Holiness activities and Long life. The accumulation will start on Losar February 8, 2016 and go on for one year.
