March 27th, 2023, marks the 22nd anniversary of the Parinirvana of Kyabje Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche, the kind hearted Root Guru of our own Khenpo Karten Rinpoche.

On Monday, April 3rd, at 6:30pm PST on ZOOM, Khenpo Karten Rinpoche will remember the great kindness of his Guru Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche with the profound practice of Guru Yoga composed by Khenpo Karten and His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje.  The Sadhana text can be downloaded here:  The Guru Practice, Rain of Blessings.

Sangye Tenzin spent 21 years in Chinese prison, yet he transformed the experience into pure spiritual food, and left the prison with only good wishes for his captors.  He was truly a Buddha appearing in this world. To learn more about Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche: “Medicine for the Mind:  On Using Suffering and Obstacles for Mental Development.”  or read about how Sangye Tenzin came to Khenpo Karten Rinpoche in his dreams by reading “An Amazing Dream Of My Root Guru.’

“Master, though you have passed to the sphere of reality, Without thinking that I lack a Guru, May I realize the whole of existence As the Guru’s mandala and so be Liberated.

Master, You equal all Buddhas in realization, Yet, for this disciple, you surpass them all. Father, unrivaled Guru, may all be auspicious For your presence in all places and times!”
