These are the dates for the Summer Seminar 2017 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling in Allmuthen, Belgium.
Like every year the week before the actual teaching period a three-days Drölkar (White Tara) retreat will happen and after the teaching period a three-days Gönkar (White Protector) retreat will take place.
|White Tara Retreat||Wed. 26.07.||to||Fri. 28.07.2017|
|Teaching||Sat. 29.07.||to||Wed. 09.08.2017|
|White Protector||Thu. 10.08.||to||Sat. 12.08.2017|
We hope very much that Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche will travel to Europe in 2017 and visit Benchen Phuntsok Ling.
However, it might be possible that Rinpoche will not be able to join the summer course in Allmuthen.
Therefore Khenpo Nyima – whom many of you know from 2014 – from the Benchen Nangten Thösam Ling Shedra (Institute) in Pharping (Nepal) will teach during the summer course in Allmuthen.
Khenpo Nyima will teach the "The Twelve Links of Interdependent Origination" based on a commentary by Jamgong Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye.
The 12 links of interdependent origination will show how we get into samsaric perception and patterns and how we can free us through understanding these processes through analysis and meditation.
Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will teach a text by the 3. Karmapa Rangjung Dorje called "Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom" or commonly known as "Namshe Yeshe Gyepa" in Tibetan.
Herein the 3. Karmapa explains the different non-Buddhist and Buddhist views. Further he shows how the 8 conciousnesses manifest in their deluded (samsaric) way and how they finally express themselves as the 5 primordial wisdoms.
If you like to join the summer course 2017 please register as soon as possible. Click here.
Begin: Saturday, June 4 at 10:00 AM
End: Monday, June 5 at noon (Pentecost Monday/Pfingstmontag)
Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will give explanations on the Chöd practice and will lead the meditation.
Participation is restricted to those who received a Chöd initiation!
Please consider the general information on courses and retreats.
From Tempa Lama, June 24, 2016
Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche is going to give the Gyalwa Kangyur Rinpoche Lung at the Rumtek monastery next year. This extraordinary
and very special event is a rare opportunity for anybody fortunate to be able join. It would be great.
==> Until now 1,476,128 Dharanis were recited (May 14, 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.
