Benchen Phuntsok Ling Europe
In a letter to his disciples from 1998 Tenga Rinpoche describes his vision of Benchen Phuntsok Ling:
==> Until now 874,708 Dharanis were recited (March 12, 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.
These are the dates for the Summer Seminar 2017 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling in Allmuthen, Belgium.
Like every year the week before the actual teaching period a three-days Drölkar (White Tara) retreat will happen and after the teaching period a three-days Gönkar (White Protector) retreat will take place.
|White Tara Retreat||Wed. 26.07.||to||Fri. 28.07.2017|
|Teaching||Sat. 29.07.||to||Wed. 09.08.2017|
|White Protector||Thu. 10.08.||to||Sat. 12.08.2017|
We hope very much that Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche will travel to Europe in 2017 and visit Benchen Phuntsok Ling.
However, it might be possible that Rinpoche will not be able to join the summer course in Allmuthen.
Therefore Khenpo Nyima – whom many of you know from 2014 – from the Benchen Nangten Thösam Ling Shedra (Institute) in Pharping (Nepal) will teach during the summer course in Allmuthen.
Khenpo Nyima will teach the "The Twelve Links of Interdependent Origination" based on a commentary by Jamgong Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye.
The 12 links of interdependent origination will show how we get into samsaric perception and patterns and how we can free us through understanding these processes through analysis and meditation.
Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will teach a text by the 3. Karmapa Rangjung Dorje called "Distinguishing Consciousness from Wisdom" or commonly known as "Namshe Yeshe Gyepa" in Tibetan.
Herein the 3. Karmapa explains the different non-Buddhist and Buddhist views. Further he shows how the 8 conciousnesses manifest in their deluded (samsaric) way and how they finally express themselves as the 5 primordial wisdoms.
A detailed program along with the registration information will follow in April 2017.
Begin: Friday, April 14 at 2:30 PM
End: Monday, April 17 at noon (Easter Monday/Ostermontag)
Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will give explanations on the practice of White Tara (Drölkar) and will lead the meditation. All recited mantras will be counted and dedicated for the swift return of Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche. The course will end with the Riwo Sangchö ritual.
Please consider the general information on courses and retreats.
