Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling Monastery, October 11, 2019

Benchen Library is an integration of our two libraries at Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling monastery and the library of Benchen Nangten Thosam Ling Institute (Pharping). Our aim is to preserve and disseminate the precious treasures of ancient Buddhist wisdom for future generations.  We are therefore dedicated to input, edit and publish them in modern book format or release online as eBooks. We also archive the teachings of Kyabje Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.

Dear Dharma friends! Please be informed that we have discovered dozens of unauthorized Facebook pages an groups created in the name of Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Benchen. Rinpoche neither endorses, nor in any way associated with those sites, nor does he solicit donation from anybody, for any reason whatsoever. Please share and pass on this message to alert as many people as possible.

Every year Khenpo Ösung travels to Rö village in the summer in order to tutor Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi. He says that Rinpoche’s memory is very good. There is a kindergarten in the village that has recently been established by Mingyur Rinpoche. With his Holiness’ permission Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi is attending it since this summer. 

The old man is Rinpoche’s grandfather.

On the pictures you can see Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche’s uncle in the yellow shirt. He has completed the Shedra in Parphing this year. Now he stays in Rö and gives Rinpoche company when his parents are out. The lake is a 45 minutes walk away from Rinpoche’s house.
