Due to many responsibilities Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche will not be able to be present at the summer course.
However Rinpoche decided to send Khenpo Karma Ösung to teach in Benchen Phuntsok Ling during the summer course.
Many of you already know Khenpo Ösung from the summer course 2015.
Khenpo Ösung completed higher Buddhist studies in Karma Shri Nalanda Insitute in Rumtek, Sikkim, India. Later he had finished the three-year retreat program in Benchen Retreat center. October 2013 His Holiness the Gyalwang Karmapa awarded him the title Khenpo and December 2013 Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche appointed him as a Khenpo of Benchen Monastery.
Khenpo Ösung will teach the "Introduction to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life" (Skt. Bodhicaryāvatāra) a famous guide to the Mahayana path written by the great master Shantideva.
Like in the last years our resident Lama Ngawang Tsultrim will teach as well.
This year Lama Ngawang will teach "The Short Prayer To Vajradhara" (Tib. Dorje Chang Thungma) a prayer which we always recite during the summer course at the begin of the afternoon teaching session.
See and listen to the recitation of the Dorje Chang Thungma with Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche 2008 in Benchen Phuntsok Ling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt3Oh7aC3WI
Lama Sherab Gyatso and Umtze Lama Yönten Phuntsok from the Benchen Monastery in Kathmandu will come to the summer course, too. There will be various workshops offered during the summer course like meditation instruction, ritual music, preparation of Tormas, etc.
The teachings will be translated into German and where necessary into English.
