Good News from Benchen Monastery

Send by Mr. Tempa Lama on February18, 2016


 One very good news: On the 5th February (see photo) we had an audience with His Holiness Karmapa. We requested whether there is any need for shapdens (tib: Pujas) and His Holiness has adviced concerning Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's coming reincarnation. His Holiness told us we need to perform 100,000,000 (dung) Guru Rinpoche mantras and 10,000,000 (sa ya) 21 Tara prayer. The indication by His Holiness is that Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche is already born on this earth. I hope I can tell you more news gradually step by step.

I am so happy and hope you all are too.


The tear down of the Maitreya shrine hall at Benchen Monastery, Kathmandu, is finally processing more rapidly after five months. The deconstruction works that are now going very well have almost reached the ground floor. The little monks who are still staying in Parphing are now having their holidays. All the older monks from Swoyambhu and the Shedra in Parphing are now in Bodhgaya. Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche is still in Parphing at the time and will soon come to Bodhgaya as well.
