Benchen Monastery, May 3, 2021
Following the advice of HH Karmapa XVII Ogyen Trinley Dorje Chagdzö Tashi Öser, Khenpo Ösung, Sherap Wangchuk, Gyurme Phuntsok and myself went to Ge Nyima, who had been a teacher of His Holiness, at his retreat in Parphing on 29. March. We requested him to teach Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi every winter for a few months as advised by His Holiness. Fortunately, Ge Nyima accepted our request.
Furthermore, His Holiness advised Tenga Rinpoche Yangsi to shorten his hair. Rinpoche accepted and now likes to wear short hair very much while it looks good too. Moreover, His Holiness advised that when Rinpoche first arrives in his village in the summer he shall have off without classes and enjoy his life playing with the other children. For further two months in the summer Khenpo Ösung shall be teaching Rinpoche. In the winter time Ge Nyima will teach Rinpoche at the monastery.
Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche's family is very fine and is staying in Rö these days.
