Lhabab Duchen Message

Dear Friends, For this Lhabab Duchen, I am very happy to share with you these two videos featuring our compassionate acts of service for laypeople and for dharma in Nepal. One of the videos features our Vajravarahi Healthcare Clinic, and the other features our neighboring Vajravarahi Monastery. The Vajravarahi Clinic has averaged 10,000 treatments per year over the past six years and offers many different types of traditional medical treatment at little to no cost. The Vajravarahi Monastery serves as the training grounds for the education of our young monks in a traditional and non-sectarian fashion that is equipping them with the knowledge and experience to they will use benefit their own villages in Nepal as well as Buddhist practitioners around the world.

Six Vajra Verses Accumulation

Kyabgon Phakchok Rinpoche has asked his sangha as well as all who are inspired to take part to accumulate 100,000,000 (one hundred million) recitations of the Six Vajra Verse supplication to be finished by December 2015. 

This blessed supplication was revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa in the 19th century. The first three lines are supplications to three forms of Guru Rinpoche, the fourth line is requesting Guru Rinpoche to grant blessings, the fifth line is requesting that all levels of obstacles may be removed, and the sixth line is requesting that all wishes may be spontaneously accomplished.  

Guru Rinpoche Day Teachings

2 November 2014: Becoming Fearless

Dear Friends Near and Far, This Sunday, I am staying in Cameron, Malaysia and teaching a Mahamudra meditation retreat. I am keeping you all in my heart and holding sincere aspirations for you to practice correctly with pure motivation. We all know a bit about dharma. However, most of the time we do not have the teachings and the pith instructions in mind. So, most importantly, keep constantly reminding yourself about the dharma. This is a very important key! Also, please check your behavior. Does it align with the dharma? Is it motivated by the dharma? Make dharma practice sensible and understandable by bringing it to life through your lived experiences/behaviors. It is also crucial that you have trust in the Three Jewels (the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha) and especially Guru Padmasambhava. Trust is very important.
