from Tempa Lama, March 5, 2018
According to the advice of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and His Eminence Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi went to receive blessings from His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche. During the time of our visit His Eminence was residing at the Tergar Monastery in Bodhgaya. Following the advice Yangsi Rinpoche and retinue arrived there on the 22nd February, 2018.
In the morning of the 25th at 8am Yangsi Rinpoche had an audience with HE Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche at the shrine hall of Terar Gompa. The monks from the Tergar Monastery, the tulkus and monks from Ralang Monastery, as much as the administrators of the Rumtek Monastery prepared a nice welcome to Yangsi Rinpoche at the Tergar Gompa.
Yangsi Rinpoche offered a mandala kusungtug to HE Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche. His Eminence offered Yangsi Rinpoche a very nice Buddha statue, a rare left-turning conch and his wishes that Yangsi Rinpoche may benefit many sentient beings.
Afterwards we all had auspicious tea and rice together. Then His Eminence performed a purifying ceremony for Yangsi Rinpoche.The tulkus, monks, nuns and devotees from Ralang offered a mandala kusungtug to Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi. Also present were the representatives of His Holiness Karmapa and the Tsurphu Labrang, Khenpo Garwang and Gyaltsen Sonam.
Afterwards Yangsi Rinpoche followed His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche who asked to join him to go to the main temple of Bodhgaya.
There together they offered aru fruit and robes to the Buddha Shakyamuni Statue and made the wish to benefit many sentient beings.
Khenpo Garwang, Gyaltsen Sonam, and the general secretary of the Mahabodhi society, Nangtse Dorje, joined the visit to the temple. After that His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsab Rinpoche invites all of us to a very nice lunch at the Ashoka Hotel. His Eminence has great memories and the feeling that this place is blessed since His Holiness the 16th Karmapa had spent more than one month here.
On February 27th we arrived back in Kathmandu. Soon Yangsi Rinpoche will fly with his parents and siblings back to their home village.
