On 31 October 2018 a formal graduation ceremony taking place at Benchen Shedra in Pharping
Karma Pakshi (1204-1283) was officially recognized as the incarnation of the first Karmapa (Düsum Khyenpa 1110-1193) and enthroned as the second Karmapa ("Master of Enlightened Action").
The Karmapa line of incarnation that still exists today is the oldest unbroken line of incarnation of Tibetan Buddhism.
The first Tenga Rinpoche (Lama Samten) had Karma Pakshi as his yidam. Karma Pakshi was also the first "Tulku" or recognized reincarnation of a master in Tibet.
In this course, under the guidance of Lama Ngawang Tsultrim and based on the text by Mingyur Rinpoche, the practice of Guru Yoga, which includes all aspects of Lamas, Yidams and Protectors, will be conducted. An initiation into Karma Pakshi is a prerequisite for course participation.

==> Until now 1,836,224 Dharanis were recited (February 11, 2019). Thank you and please carry on!
Therefore His Holiness' sister, Jetsun Ngodup Palzom has invited all students, individuals, groups and centres to join in, and to accumulate recitations that will be said by them or their group over the next year (2016, the Tibetan year of the Fire Monkey) as an offering for the benefit of everyone. She is asking for a commitment from each individual or group who wishes to join in, meaning an accumulated number of recitations will be offered during the year by each individual or group.
The Sangha of Benchen Phuntsok Ling together with Dharmahaus Benchen Tashi Ling will accumulate 2,000,000 of the Dharanis for His Holiness activities and Long life. The accumulation will start on Losar February 8, 2016 and go on for one year.
