Prayers for H.E. Gar Mingyur Rinpoche

Dear Dharma Friends,

Recently I received news of the rapidly declining health of His Eminence Gar Mingyur Rinpoche, the ultimate great Yogin and vajra-holder of the three vows, born in 1940. I arranged for several ceremonies to prolong his life. To this end I have truly done everything possible. Receiving the sad news this morning of his physical manifestation’s dissolution into the dharma-sphere, I am full of sorrow.

Mingyur Rinpoche is not only a lama of my monastery, but in times when the teachings of the Buddha had declined he bestowed monastic ordinations in many monasteries without sectarian bias. Therefore, he is a great holder of vinaya who restored the foundation of the vinaya teachings.

We continue with a study group on the "Thirty-seven Practices of a Bodhisattva" with Drubpon Palkyi, Tsünma Zofia and Alex Sieber.
The study group will be every second Friday 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm. The next will be announced

H.E. Garchen Rinpoche considers these practices as essential for all his students. We therefore recommend all newcomers to study in advance the teachings on the 37 practices of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche .
