From Sherab Wangchuk, June 4, 2016

XVII KarmapaThrough the precognition of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, he suggested that Benchen Monastery should arrange a three day Tsheringma puja in order to remove any obstacles that may hinder the discovery of Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's Yangsi. The puja took place in Saranath at Vajra Vidya Institute and was presided over by His Holiness and led by the Principle Umze of Rumtak Monastery along with the Umze of Thrangu and Benchen Monasteries. Lamas and monks from Benchen and Thrangu Monasteries, along with nuns from Thrangu Ani Shedra, Lumbini performed this important part of the rituals necessary in order to discover Yangsi Rinpoche. The Benchen community wish to express our sincere gratitude to His Holiness for his consistent kindness and generosity in helping us in this endeavor.
