On the 29th of November 2014 His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche finished bestowing the forty nine days transmission of Dam Ngag Dzy.
One day earlier, Rinpoche met Benchen Shenpen - an organisation which gathers former Benchen monks whose present task is to help with organising various events in the monastery. Among other things, they serve the tea or take part in tiding works. During this year Dam Ngag Dzy, the former Benchen monks were working really efficiently and eagerly, all the time being very helpful and kind to all the participants.
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 Buddhist Culture Centre invites everyone for the opening of the exhibition: ''Sixteen Arhats – Tibetan Paintings (Thangkas)''.
The thangkas were offered to Benchen Karma Kamtsang Centre in Grabnik by His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche.
The exhibition will last one month.
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.
In March 2014 at the request of the Benchen Monastery community, His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche kindly bestowed the rare transmission of "Chod Wang Gyatsa" (100 empowerments of Chod). Along with the empowerments Rinpoche also gave the reading transmission, a brief explanation on "Tri Yik Yeshe Lama" and others.. At the conclusion as a thanks giving ceremony the Luejin sadhana with tsok offering was conducted.
