Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche’s auspicious 80th birthday celebration was organised by the newly-established Benchen centre in Singapore - Benchen Karma Choeling. As the centre premises is rather small, arrangement was made to hold the event at the nearby Tai Peh Buddhist Temple. The management of the temple kindly let out their premises for this two-day event, beginning 15th October 2011.
Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche was to confer the Milarepa empowerment and the lineage transmission and blessings that afternoon. HE Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche was unexpectedly in Singapore, so Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche requested him to bestow the blessing empowerment.
