The Benchen Karma Kamtsang Buddhist Association in Poland gathers practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism of Karma Kamtsang tradition, known also under the name Karma Kagyu.
The highest spiritual authority of the school is His Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa. Our Association is under direct guidance of the Benchen Monastery and its abbots, His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Most Venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche, being among most eminent Lamas of the Karma Kamtsang school.
Inside the stupa with Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's relics there is a room with walls richly ornamented with beautiful frescos. The paintings present the incarnation lineage of Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Tenga Rinpoche, the lineage of White Tara practice, Twenty-one Taras and Dharma Protectors of Karma Kamtsang and Shangpa Kagyu Lineages.
Today March 31, 2014 Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche consecrated Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's relic stupa in Parphing together with many rinpoches, dorje lopöns, khenpos, lamas, monks, nuns, and many lay practitioners. It started at 8:30 in the morning. During the consecration there were rainbow circles around the sun and three big black birds and one white bird were flying around high above the stupa. According to Tibetan tradition these are very auspicious signs.
On March 26, 2014 Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's main relic stupa was consecrated in the Tara Shrine room in the Benchen Monastery by Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche together with fourteen other rinpoches.
Over two thousand khenpos, lamas, monks, nuns and lay people gathered to receive blessings. We hope that the videoclip will be soon released on the website http://www.benchen.org.
