Visit to Rumtek Monastery

According to H.H. the Karmapa's wishes on 1st July Tashi Özer, Tashi Wanggyal and myself, we left to Rumtek Monastery with Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's shirt, hair, relic bones and relic pills. In the evening we stayed at Sangter Tulku's uncle's house. 2nd July in the morning we left to Rumtek Monastery and arrived 10:00 according to the arrangement. Now is raining season and it has been raining continuously for five days and it has been foggy. At that day we arrived in Rumtek the sky was clear and the monastery together with H.E. Gyaltsap Rinpoche made a wonderful reception for the arrival of Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's relics. You can see the photos.

3rd July we went to Ralang Monastery, made offerings and then tried to find someone who knows about the construction of White Tara mandala (Lölhang). Unfortunately that person is not there anymore. Drubpön Tenzin Gyurme told us that in H.E. Trangu Rinpoche's retreat place at the Milarepa cave in Bhaktapur Nepal we can find one very good artist who has lots of experience. Hopefully we will succeed and find this person.
Today 5th July we are all back in Kathmandu.
That's all now.

Namaste, Tempa
