Return of H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche to Nepal

from Sherab Wangchuk, January 4, 2018

In the evening of the 2nd January, 2018, His Eminence Drupwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche returned to Benchen Monastery in Kathmandu Nepal following a very successful visit to Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim-- the main seat of His Holiness The Gyalwa Karmapa. Rinpoche fulfilled the Dharma wishes of the thousands who had gathered there over two months in order to receive the oral transition of the Kangyur. In addition, Rinpoche fulfilled every request for many other transitions of various texts by the gathered Nobel Sanga from all schools of Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma, Sakya, Kagyu, Geluk and Jonung.

On the 3rd January at 9am the Benchen Monastery Community gathered together to welcome Rinpoche back. In order to rejoice and thank him for turning the wheel of Dharma, they conducted a welcoming ceremony. Khenpo Woesung gave a wonderful address mainly focusing on a short biography of Nyenpa Rinpoche's activities. Then The Sixteen Arhats Puja and individual khatak offerings were performed. Before the conclusion, Rinpoche gave a brief account of his time at Rumtek and gave us all some essential Dharma advice.

Chagdzo Lama Tenam was presented with khataks from those present, as a mark of our gratitude and appreciation for his lifelong sincere service to Rinpoche. We were very fortunate to enjoy the presence of Rinpoche's father and mother, who were offered khatak form the gathering in order to honour, thank and show our appreciation to them. Rinpoche will remain in Nepal for some time.

Swayambhu Stupa: the clean-up

from Sherab Wangchuk, December 1, 2017

On 1st December 2017, Benchen Monastery and Samten Ling Monastery worked together to clean the area of the Swayambhu Stupa. The clean-up started at 8.00am, beginning from the top, at the forest all the way down. The monks worked very hard putting in much effort to clear bits and pieces of rubbish which had been thrown into the forest. The area looks much cleaner now.
Lunch was served at 1.00pm at Benchen Monastery.
This cleaning programme of Swayambhu Stupa was organised by Khorgyug - the Benchen Environment Protection Organisation. The local authority helped by providing trucks and lorries which carried away all the garbage for disposal at a dumping ground.
