These are pictures taken recently in Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi's village. This year there was much more snow than last. Rinpoche is enjoying the winter snow.
"Tara" (tibet. Dölma) means "liberator". There are many different emanations of Tara. The best known manifestations are the White and the Green Tara. The different emanations indicate that the Tara shows herself in various forms depending on the situation and requirements and carries out various healing activities accordingly.
Since she leads countless beings to enlightenment in this way, she is also called "Mother of all Buddhas". The White Tara practice that we are going to perform here aims to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. Until we have attained enlightenment, it also helps against fear and serves to prolong life and remove obstacles for oneself and others.
The prerequisite for participation in this course is an initiation into the practice of White Tara.
Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will give explanations on the practice of White Tara (Drölkar) and will guide the meditation.
|Begin:||Friday,||April 19||at 14:30 CEST|

==> Until now 1,928,524 Dharanis were recited (March 26, 2019). 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.
