Announcement for spring course 2015 (8th March to 14th March)
Benchen Monastery has requested our respected Sangter Tulku Rinpoche and our khenpos to preside over the one week spring course at the Benchen Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. So we are happy to announce that they have accepted our request.
On the 29th of November 2014 His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche finished bestowing the forty nine days transmission of Dam Ngag Dzy.
During the transmission representatives of Benchen Karma Kamtsang Poland offered to Rinpoche the Mandala of the Universe and the symbols of enlightened Body, Speech and Mind (see video).
As we all can remember, His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche has declared, during His visit in Grabnik in 2013, to sponsor the Buddha Shakyamuni statue for our new Lhakhang. Soon after arrival to Nepal from Europe Rinpoche ordered the statue.
The Great Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye (1813-1899) was the co-founder of Rime – the 19th century nonsectarian movement in Tibetan Buddhism. Being the main disciple of the 14th Karmapa and the root Lama of the 15th Karmapa, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye is also well known as the author of 'The Five Great Treasures' – the collections of the most important transmissions of various schools and his own works. These Treasures is one of the most important in Tibetan Buddhism, set of empowerments, lungs (oral transmissions) and commentaries.
