Again having morning coffee from my Rig Dzin Dharma Center cup and thinking of you. So far the cup and I have been together every morning this 1/2 year on the road from VT to NM to HI to Cambodia to Nepal. The plan is still to eventually finish the trip around the world when conditions allow, finish the book I am writing about tripping around the world a year after doctors told me I would be dead, and then having a cup of tea in the RDC from this very cup when I get back there. Trip-to-now details are in the last dozen or so blog spots on Puppy's website if anyone is bored and needs something to read. Meanwhile, I love and miss y'all--and it isn't just jabber when I say I "see" you every morning! Be well, Ten(zin) fearless puppy dot info

This is for all, but especially Liz as I don't know how to find her on FB or have an email address for her. Thanks, Liz, very much for my Doggie Happy New Year plates and napkins, which are now prominently displayed in the new room in Brattleboro, VT where I'll be for next 1-5 months. The hills are green, the river is running, and everything is beautiful here. I think of all of you often and will always remember your kindness, and the elevation I always felt when walking into that building--or seeing any of you outside of it. Be well. Love, Ten

In Memoriam

Ani Tsultrim Palmo



It is with deep sadness that RigDzin Dharma shares the passing of long-time sangha member Ani Tsultrim Palmo.

Ani left her body peacefully this morning, November 21, at 6:30 am, after a long illness.

Ani was a long-time RigDzin Sangha member who worked tirelessly to help establish the Center in its early days. She served on the Board for many years and helped on many fundraisers to buy our current space. She received vows from Venerable Traga Rinpoche and remained very devoted to him.

Ani was a force for ethics and a stalwart practitioner who regularly reminded and encouraged us to stay resolute in our practice and journey to cultivate Bodhicitta in our hearts. She will be greatly missed.

Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin will be leading Amitabha practice on Sunday morning, 9 am EST (7 am MST), on Zoom. Please join in if you can, as a Sangha, to dedicate Amitabha mantras to support Ani on her journey to Dewachen. Information to access the Zoom meeting is below:

Annoucement from GBI:

Green Tara empowerment and teachings on April 26th at 2:30pm PST (Arizona time)

Dear Worldwide Sangha,

During these difficult times, we are especially fortunate that H.E. Garchen Rinpoche will turn the Wheel of Dharma and bestow the Green Tara Empowerment. The practice of Jetsun Tara, the protectress from the fear of disease, is extremely powerful particularly during this pandemic.

“When disciples practice the meditations and recitations of Jetsun Tara, it is a great merit because one practices in order to end the suffering of sentient beings. Practicing in this way with a mind of love and compassion, is the method to increase bodhicitta higher and higher.

Most important is not to think: "What if I get this disease?" You must not think in this way at all. If such thoughts do arise, visualize Tara or your own yidam, and think: "May no one in this world be sick. May the entire world be benefited."
H.E Garchen Rinpoche

May Everyone be protected and free of harm!

Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin
January 17 to January 19, 2020

Friday night, January 17, Khenpo Tsultrim will give a public talk on meditation and its benefits.

On Saturday morning, January 18, Khenpo Tsultrim will bestow the Manjushri empowerment. In the afternoon he will offer instruction and practice on The Concise Orange-Colored Manjushri sadhana. Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and Insight, holds the sword of awareness in his right hand to cut through ignorance and delusion. He represents ever-present wisdom. Manjushri empowerment and practice is suitable for students at all levels.

On Sunday, January 19, Khenpo will provide instruction and transmission on a very special Arya Tara Sadhana called Udumvara Flower. This practice is drawn from the Three Special Deities, which were compiled by the rare stream of Marpa Lotsawa. The sadhana contains the Homage to the Twenty-One Taras, which describes each of the 21 emanations of Tara and offers protection from fear, harm and calamities.

Our dear dharma sister, Lisette Nagera, departed her body peacefully on Tuesday, December 31, after a valiant battle against a long-term illness. She had the blessings and support of many of her beloved lamas, friends, and sangha members during her transition time.

Lisette had a mighty heart. Her deep compassion for all sentient beings, especially animals, was known and felt by all. She was especially devoted to the Three Jewels and worked to tirelessly to support dharma activities. She spent many years as a RigDzin Dharma Foundation Board member, supported establishing a Drikung Kagyu center in Mexico City, and was an important supporter of a Drikung Kagyu nunnery in India as well as many other Drikung Kagyu centers. She was a steady presence at teaching events and drubchens, both in the USA and overseas, and benefactor for many humanitarian and animal rescue efforts.

Her physical absence leaves a gaping hole at RigDzin, but we rejoice in knowing that she is no longer suffering and on her way to that glorious pureland--Dewachen. She will be sorely missed but is always present in our hearts.

RigDzin will be holding Bardo prayers and Amitabha mantras for Lisette on Saturday, January 4, at 1 pm at RigDzin Dharma Center.

In addition, RigDzin will hold Bardo prayers at the Center for Lisette every Tuesday evening for the next 7 weeks from 6:15 to 7:00 pm, with the last day being February 18.

Please join us if you can, either remotely or in person, to support Lisette on her next journey.

12/27/2019

Please send out prayers to our dharma sister Lisette.
She is dealing with very difficult physical health problems right now. Let her know that she is loved and in our prayers.

Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche

Nov. 22 - 24

Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche will offer pith instruction and commentary on the profound root text Vajra Speech of the Essence of the Ultimate by Ngoje Repa, a highly accomplished disciple of Lord Jigten Sumgon. On Friday evening, he will give a public talk on navigating difficult times.

In teaching dharma, Khenchen Rinpoche emphasizes the importance of letting dharma pe*****te our hearts rather than chasing after so-called “higher” teachings or practices.

Khenchen Rinpoche will offer Refuge in the Three Jewels on Saturday after tea break, around 3:30 pm. Taking Refuge opens the door to all Buddhist teachings and lineage support to accompany and protect you on your spiritual journey.

Summer Retreat with Venerable Drupon Rinchen Dorje

Meditations on the Fivefold Path of Mahamudra
July 26 to July 28

The Fivefold Path of Mahamudra encompasses an entire practice pathway to Buddhahood passed down from Phagmo Drupa to Jigton Sumgon, founder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. The Fivefold Path is: Bodhicitta, Deity Yoga, Guru Yoga, Mahamudra, and Dedication. This complete path has been called the essence of all sutras and tantras, and the foundation of the ocean of all teachings that can practiced by one person. Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen has called it "the highway of the buddhas of the three times.

Drupon Rinchen Dorje's teachings will focus on meditation on the Fivefold Path using Shakya Bhikshu Shila Ratna's text, The Practice of the Fivefold Path, The Essence of Ta**ra, as a guide. Along with meditation instruction on each of the five practices, Drupon will offer specific techniques for taking afflictive emotions, sickness, obstacles, and death onto the path of enlightenment.

Please join us in this precious opportunity to receive profound meditation instructions from an authentic meditation master and yogi!

PRAYER TO SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA
With your great compassion, you chose this world of conflict and degeneration. And made five hundred vast aspirations. You are praised like the immaculate white lotus, for whoever hears your name can never fall back into samsara. Most compassionate teacher, to you I pay homage. Supreme teacher, bhagavan, tathagata, arhat, complete and perfect Buddha, glorious conqueror, Shakyamuni, to you I bow! To you I pay homage! In you I take refuge.
