Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche is in the Benchen Monastery in Tibet right now giving teachings on Mahamudra. More than six thousand rinpoches, khenpos, lamas, monks and nuns have gathered. Everybody is joining four sessions each day, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. In the morning the first session is teachings, the second session is group meditation and in the afternoon it is the same.
Everything goes very nicely. The participants are all very happy for this rare opportunity to receive teachings by Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche.
==> Until now 1,649,139 Dharanis were recited (October 8, 2017). Thank you and please carry on!
Therefore His Holiness' sister, Jetsun Ngodup Palzom has invited all students, individuals, groups and centres to join in, and to accumulate recitations that will be said by them or their group over the next year (2016, the Tibetan year of the Fire Monkey) as an offering for the benefit of everyone. She is asking for a commitment from each individual or group who wishes to join in, meaning an accumulated number of recitations will be offered during the year by each individual or group.
The Sangha of Benchen Phuntsok Ling together with Dharmahaus Benchen Tashi Ling will accumulate 2,000,000 of the Dharanis for His Holiness activities and Long life. The accumulation will start on Losar February 8, 2016 and go on for one year.
