|News from Tenga Rinpoche (Nov. 2-4, 2011)|
Nov. 2, 2011
Dear Dharma Friends,
As some of you may be aware, I have not been very well in the past weeks due to infections in my finger and my left big toe. I have been hospitalised these past few days, undergoing a number of treatments. Despite this, the infections did not clear. My doctors in Singapore recommended that having an operation would be a better option for long- term benefit.
I have thought over this matter again and again and I know that it is the right decision to have part of my left leg amputated. I made this particular decision in order to live long because it is my sincere intention to serve the Buddhadharma, and to at least be of some help to Dharma practitioners.
Through the blessings of my Root Gurus and through your sincere aspiration prayers, the operation went well today.
I wish you all my best.
Update from Nov. 4, 10:00 CET:
Tenga Rinpoche's middle finger of the right hand was removed just 1 and a half hour ago. The operation was made with local anaesthetics.
Everything went very well.
Rinpoche will stay on the intensive care unit until tomorrow. Then he will change position to another room.
Also Thrangu Rinpoche plans to visit Tenga Rinpoche tomorrow.
Now only the infection of the lungs is still there.
The doctors say that this will improve and cure very quickly now.
