His Holiness Lungtog Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche and His Eminence Yongdzin Lopon Tendzin Namdhak Rinpoche

Dear Sangha members and friends,

I would like to share with you my concern about the health of His Holiness Lungtog Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, abbot of Menri Monastery, and leader of the worldwide Bon community.

Also I would like to inform you about the ceremonies that will be held for the long life of both His Holiness and His Eminence Yongdzin Lopon Tendzin Namdhak Rinpoche.


His Holiness’ health

As you probably know since the summer of 2015 His Holiness has been experiencing health issues. Currently he is in New York undergoing medical treatment. I like to request all of you to practice for his quick recovery and long life. You can recite the long life mantra of Tsewang Rigdzin, recite the four-line prayer dedicated to his the long life or dedicate any other positive practice.


Long life ceremonies - Tenshug

During the month of April, two ceremonies will be held for the long life of His Holiness and Yongdzin Rinpoche, the most senior spiritual masters of the Yungdrung Bon tradition.

With the performance of these ceremonies we ask for their continued presence and we express our gratitude for the work they have done to secure the survival of the Yungdrung Bon religion and to invigorate its life.

The dates are confirmed to be the 8th of April for His Holiness and the 21st of April for Yongdzin Rinpoche.

Though the dates have been confirmed the location where the ceremony for His Holiness will be held is not yet decided. This may be either in Menri Monastery in India, or in the United States. I will inform you as soon as this has been decided.

The ceremony for Yongdzin Rinpoche will take place in Triten Norbutse in Nepal. I would like to welcome all those who can to attend physically and those who cannot be present in person to participate through their prayers and good intentions.

Dear Sangha members and friends,

Following my earlier message about the health of His Holiness Lungtog Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche I would now like to let you know that it has been decided that the long life ceremony for His Holiness will be performed in Menri monastery in India. On April 8th according to the original schedule.

It is however uncertain if His Holiness will be able to be present. It is more likely His Holiness will be remain in the United States.
