Note about Benchen Library and unauthorized Facebook pages

Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling Monastery, October 11, 2019

Benchen Library is an integration of our two libraries at Benchen Phuntsok Dargyeling monastery and the library of Benchen Nangten Thosam Ling Institute (Pharping). Our aim is to preserve and disseminate the precious treasures of ancient Buddhist wisdom for future generations.  We are therefore dedicated to input, edit and publish them in modern book format or release online as eBooks. We also archive the teachings of Kyabje Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.

Dear Dharma friends! Please be informed that we have discovered dozens of unauthorized Facebook pages an groups created in the name of Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Benchen. Rinpoche neither endorses, nor in any way associated with those sites, nor does he solicit donation from anybody, for any reason whatsoever. Please share and pass on this message to alert as many people as possible.

Remembering Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche

Tempa Lama, April 10, 2019

Dear Dharma Brothers and Sisters,

Our beloved master late Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche passed away on 30. March 2012. According to the Tibetan lunar calendar it was the 8th day of the 2nd month of the year 2139.

All of the Tibetan monasteries are following the lunar calendar. Therefore this year the anniversary falls on the 13th April. On that day our monastery will perform White Tara Puja and offer many lamps. All of us can use this opportunity to remember the love, kindness and teachings Tenga Rinpoche had given us in order for us to become better human beings.

Here are some pictures of the puja on April 13, 2019
