The annual Mahakala rituals for the coming Tibetan New Year (Iron Tiger) started at Benchen Gompa in Kathmandu on 3 February. Ven. Tenga Rinpoche is participating in all afternoon sessions sitting in his wheel chair. Of course he would like to join the morning pujas too.

Rinpoche is performing the remaining pujas in his room. After finishing the rituals he is doing exercises to gain physical health and strength. He is sending his heartily “Losar Tashi Deleks” (lucky new Year) to everybody.

This year H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche cannot attend the Losar festival. He is in Bhutan staying with his parents. After then he will visit Hongkong, Singapure, Indonesia and Malaysia.
