On 28. December 2014 the Benchen Committee together with the senior representatives of the monastery had an audience with the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa at Tergar Monastery, Bodhgaya. We have inquired about Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's reincarnation. His Holiness mentioned, that he had a meaningful advice to the Benchen Monastery.
He said, it is very necessary that we at the monastery continuously perform all the rituals and Dharma activities, as it has been wonderfully established by Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche. In this way, when Rinpoche's reincarnation comes, he will find, that the monastery community has continuously preserved the tradition according to his advice. That is very important. All monks of our community should not leave the monastery permanently.

His Holiness also said that it is very necessary to do Shaptens for Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's reincarnation. At the monastery, the shedra, and the three year retreat center all should accumulate a total of 100 White Tara sadhanas.
His Holiness said that it is very important for us to follow Kyabje Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche's advice well.
Late Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche was accomplished in all forms of dharma activities. Therefore, it is sure that Rinpoche's reincarnation will be unexcelled.
When His Holiness sees further indications, he will let us know. At the end of the audience we have taken a group photo.

Namaste, Tempa
