From Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling Monastery office, Nepal, August 8, 2016
To the kind attention of all the Tsurphu Labrang officials who take supporting the Buddha’s teaching as their personal responsibility.
The recent letter of the Supreme Gyalwang, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, indicates that – in order to pacify all obstacles for the holders of the Buddha’s teaching in general and for those of the Karma Kamtsang in particular – he sees the practice and accomplishing of the Prajnaparamitahridayasutra (»The Hear of Wisdom Sutra«) and the Singhamukha both as a key necessity for all Kamtsang Monasteries.
Right upon knowing this announcement Kyabje Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche declared to the common assembly of Benchen monastery the immediate need to accomplish these two requested procedures and without any delay, granted the reading transmission for both. And thus, on the 8th August, 2016, starting within the Benchen Shedra, they all devoted themselves to the accomplishing with all enthusiasm to the best of their capacity.
