News from Tenga Rinpoche (Mar. 27, 2012)

Venerable Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche left to Lumbini on the March 22 in order to consecrate the new monastery of Gyalpo Rinpoche which belongs to the Karma Kamtsang lineage followers. This monastery was newly finished in Lumbini and Rinpoche was invited in order to concecrate it. Nyenpa Rinpoche comes back to Kathmandu on March 28.
The present situation Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's health is not so good. It is about 10-20 percent worse. This means that Rinpoche does not make jokes about his health and also him making fun in between us does not occur anymore. Rinpoche's appetite also became less. Rinpoche's sleep is not so good and he has less energy.

Yesterday Monday March 26 venerable Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche, Tashi Oser, Karma, Lama Tsondu, Sherap Wangchuk, Jimba Lodro, Lama Geleg, and myself, we all requested Rinpoche best to visit the hospital since the situation is getting worse. Rinpoche accepted. In Monday evening 18:00 Rinpoche was able to visit the emergency ward of the Norwic Hospital in Kathmandu. There the doctors did all the neccessary checkups and found the main reasons to be pneumonia, low blood pressure and too few red blood cells. Today Tuesday 27 the doctors gave blood transfusion, antibiotics and medicine to increase blood pressure. Right now Rinpoche is in the intensive care ward. Today was better than yesterday. We all hope it will become better and better.
Thats all news right now.
Thank you Tashi Deleks, Namaste to you all!
