Two Upcoming Events

Remembrance Ceremony
for Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche

Sunday, February 26
6:00pm to 7:30pm
Manjushri Dharma Center

Kyabje Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche was the kind heart teacher of our own Khenpo Karten Rinpoche.    In a blog post entitled, I Met My Root Guru In A Dream, KK Rinpoche writes, “With last night’s dream, I see it as a good sign that my benevolent guru who passed away about fifteen years ago has still not let me, his poor disciple, out of the grip of his compassion…I am again and again forcefully reminded of how he especially takes care of me, this lowly child within his entourage, as lovingly as a mother cares for her only child.

On the occasion of the Tibetan New Year’s Eve, we will remember the great kindness of Kyabje Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche by reciting special prayers, some of which were composed by KK Rinpoche.   Participants may bring flowers for the altar if they wish, but simply participating is the best offering you can make as we honor this precious lineage.
