Please Pray for Khenrinpoche's Good Health!!

Note: Some news of concern about the Abbot of Kopan Monastery, the main FPMT monastery in Nepal. On 15 Jan, 2011, we did the 2nd round of the Golden Light Sutra recitation. I pray he gets well! If you can do one of the practices as advised below, that will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

1. Announcement by Losang Dragpa Centre (Jan. 14, 2011)

Dear LDC members and friends,

Our precious and much beloved Guru, Khenrinpoche Lama Lhundrup manifested signs of illness recently. Khenrinpoche was invited to Singapore to seek medical treatment. After extensive tests and examinations by specialists, Khenrinpoche is diagnosed stomach cancer.

As mentioned in the previous announcements, our most respected guru Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised us to recite Golden Light Sutra as soon as possible and to dedicate to our most compassionate guru, Kyabje Khenrinpoche Lama Lundrup Rigsel. According to Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, if there is a group of at least 55 people reciting the Golden Light Sutra at the same time, this would confer the best result. 

We received this message on Wednesday early in the morning and LDC has immediately arranged for the group recitation. There were 50 people participated in the group recitation and 8 people reported that they will do the recitation from home. 

As all are aware, Kyabje Khenrinpoche has been visiting Malaysia for the past few years to spread the teachings of the Buddha and in particular the 1K offerings events. Due to the kindness and compassion of Kyabje Khenrinpoche, we are able to receive the most precious gift on earth, being the teachings of the Buddha. We have received the commentary on Tantric Grounds and Paths, Teaching on Special Insight, Teaching on Mind Transformation, Teaching on Samantha, Teachings on How to remove problems in life Kyabje Khenrinpoche taught us to be compassionate, practice bodhicitta, generosity, ethics patience, enthusiastic, perseverance, concentration and wisdom through Khen Rinpoche's actual life practice. During his recent visit, he has performed the Medicine Buddha Initiation, White Tara Initiation, Fire Pujas, Jangwa, Chabtu Puja and etc. Due to his kindness and compassion in performing the pujas, initiations and oral transmissions, our friends, family members, ourselves and the deceased received immense of benefits. 

The Chabtu Puja which is a powerful Dorje Namjolma Healing Puja for purifying any obstacles to health, to receive protection from sickness and to have long, healthy and happy life are being performed by our beloved and compassionate Kyabje Khenrinpoche. It is very rare to have a high and qualified lama to agree to perform this puja. Due to his kindness and compassion, our beloved Khenrinpoche has been performing the said puja for the past few years. Kyabje Khenrinpoche has inspired many members and friends to practice dharma, to apply the holy dharma in our daily lifes, Kyabje Khenrinpoche provided us with the skills to solve our daily problems. Kyabje Khenrinpoche has also held our children's hands and join all of them together to practice and preserve the holy dharma. The children from the 16TLB and Maitrey Choir are the best examples. 

For Kyabje Khenrinpoche's speedy recovery, this is just a small request from Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. This request by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche for the recitation of the Golden Light Sutra, to recite once by a group of at least 55 people was only directed to us in Malaysia. If the recitation could be performed by any 55 people Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche could have requested the monasteries and nunneries, where there are easily thousands of people to recite not once by many times. We trust Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche must have his reason for such request to LDC. 

We sincerely appreciate all the precious gifts that we received from Kyabje Khenrinpoche. This is a great opportunity for us to repay Kyabje Khen Rinpoche's kindness. We trust Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche fully and sincerely hope we could fulfill our guru's holy advise for the speedy recovery of Kyabje Khen Rinpoche. 

2. Announcement by FPMT (Jan. 14, 2011)

Dear Friends,
Recently Khen Rinpoche Lama Lhundrup has been having health problems, and about one week ago Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised Lama Lhundrup to be treated in hospital.

In the meantime Rinpoche has advised pujas and practices to be done at Kopan, as well as the reading of the Golden Light Sutra in Malaysia.

For others who would like to do prayers for Khen Rinpoche’s health to improve, Rinpoche is advising these practices. There is no particular number to be done - Rinpoche just said that for those students who would like to do, these are the practices that come out best for Lama Lhundrup’s health:

1)      Read Long life sutra
3)      Tong Len practice

We will keep you informed as we know more.


3. There is also an announcement by Singapore's Amitabha Buddhist Centre. The members will do recitation of the Long Life Sutra and Guru Rinpoche's prayer to eliminate obstacles on 16th Jan. in the afternoon about 2pm. So, for those of you in Singapore, do support the session.
