Join Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Ligmincha sangha members worldwide this Saturday, January 26, on Facebook Live to celebrate the life and work of His Eminence Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. The schedule for both the US and Europe is listed below.
From January 22–30, 2020, Triten Norbutse Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal is celbrating the 25th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Yungdrung Bön Academy of Higher Studies. Among the many special events and activities planned is a January 27 Thenshug, a mandala offering for the long life of Bön’s most senior teacher and lineage holder, His Eminence Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche, as we celebrate his 95th birthday.
Thenshug literally means to “stay everlasting,” and is a ritual performed to support and extend the lifespan of an important master or practitioner. The Thenshug is also an occasion for the students to express their devotion toward their master, who keeps the Buddha’s teaching and spreads it untiringly, and to fulfill all his wishes.
The Thenshug will take place at Triten Norbutse Monastery on January 27, 2020. Since so many Western students have a heart connection with Yongdzin Rinpoche but are not able to travel to Nepal, Ligmincha International is organizing a series of activities online and at our centers around the world.
Please Accumulate Long Life Mantras
Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche encourages all practitioners to accumulate recitations of the Long Life Mantra for Yongdzin Rinpoche: SO DRUM A KAR MU LA TING NAM Ö DU MU YE TSE NI DZA. Our accumulated mantras will be offered to His Eminence by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche (who will be in California) on the day of the Thenshug ceremony. Our hope is that we can offer at least 10 million Long Life Mantras to Yongdzin Rinpoche. The deadline for reporting mantra accumulations is 4:30 p.m. New York time (Eastern time U.S.) on January 26, 2020.
On January 26, 2020, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Ligmincha International will host several events as a way of celebrating Yongdzin Rinpoche’s life and work. We will also be organizing local in-person and online activities. Please see your local Ligmincha chapter’s social media accounts or website for information about specific events in your area or language. All events will be streamed on Facebook Live or on Zoom (free download required).

This course will support participants in recognizing patterns of inner and outer speech and how to use precision of attention to rest in powerful, transformative inner silence.
One of the greatest strengths of Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche’s ongoing program of free Internet teachings is the community of individuals around the world who regularly follow Rinpoche’s teachings and guided meditations and share mutual support. As a resource for this lively and growing community, with the help of volunteers Rinpoche has now launched a new website, CyberSangha.net.
