Postby T. Chokyi » Mon Jun 04, 2012 1:28 pm

Cathy the head of the Dharma Center for Palyul in Ohio, gave
permission (June 3 2012) to announce this wonderful information on Dharmawheel:

Very Special Live Auction Item with Proceeds Going to the Palyul Ohio Roof
Fundraising Project


One of a kind, Mani Stone hand carved by the 10th Bhakha Rinpoche, Tulku Orgyen
Phuntsok's Uncle, in 1992. The Bhakha Tulkus have been considered as the
incarnations of Dorje Lingpa, who was considered an emanation of Vairotsana,
primary holder of the lineage of Rigdzin Pema Lingpa, and Shikpo Lingpa. He
studied at Mindroling in Tibet, and later at the school for young tulkus in
Dalhousie, India. He has received many teachings from great masters including
Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Dodrupchen Rinpoche. He also holds the Dzogchen
lineage of the Namchö tradition, the Longchen Nyingtik and the Chetsün Nyingtik.
He received Dudjom Tersar, Rinchen Terdzö and many other teachings from Dudjom
Rinpoche, whom he served for a number of years. He has also served and received
transmissions from Penor Rinpoche and Chatral Rinpoche. Due to health condition
Bhakha Rinpoche is not carving any new Mani's at this time. We pray that Rinpoche
will be well and recover quickly.

If you have any questions about this mani stone you should contact Cathy (head of the Dharma Center) or if it is a question about the stone itself, maybe I can answer here in the forum on this thread, if not, I'll direct you to her. I donated this mani stone to Palyul Ohio as a thank you to Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche for his generosity in spreading the Dharma, and also his kindness in helping me sponsor Tulku Orgyen Phuntsok Rinpoche teaching in May at Palyul. This is one way I could "give back" to Khenchen thanking him for his steadfast generosity.

Right now the roof is leaking into the shrine room whenever it rains there, so buckets have to be placed all around. There are so few beautiful Gompas like this in the U.S.A. they are a treasure for this time and for the future. This mani rock I've given for the temple roof fund was a personal gift given to me from Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche, this specific mani rock was carved by his own hand, it is rare, as this stone was one of the first, if not the first, he ever made here in the USA. I don't know at this time if Rinpoche will be carving more, Rinpoche has suffered a health difficulty so he cannot carve the mani and he is in therapy, everyone is praying for his health and full recuperation. If you want to offer prayers for Rinpoche please see: http://vairotsana.org/peace/

Rinpoche was brought to the USA in the early 1990's under the auspices of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche for the first time (USA) to facilitate some aspects of Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo training. Bhakha Rinpoche spent time with Jetsunma then traveled to Orgyen Dorje Den in Alameda CA teaching there, and after teaching there Rinpoche continued his travels with me. I arranged a small teaching venue in Grants Pass Oregon, Eugene, and up into Portland Orgeon, I was totally fortunate to accompany Rinpoche to these teachings, he is an excellent Dharma teacher, I felt fortunate to have helped him with his early activity here, my teacher Gyatrul Rinpoche was also pleased and thanked me for helping Bhakha Tulku Rinpoche. The qualities of Rinpoche are unsurpassed, he is very kind and helpful to everybody, and for our benefit he built the Zuni Mountain Stupa in New Mexico:

This Mani stone being offered has provenance, it is one of the first, if not the first carved by Rinpoche here in The USA and being it is carved by his own hand, the hand of a master teacher (see history below of Bhakha Rinpoches) it is a great jewel, you could dedicate the merit of the purchase of this stone
to someone you love, someone who is sick, or someone in your family you want to help. It would be a very great dharma support, a great blessing for you to have this stone in your shrine room, or at your Dharma Center, or on your personal altar.

The Roof Benefit was sucessful! Roof beginning construction soon. New roof within the next 6 months!

If you have been following the website you probably have seen these events listed, however the Medicine Buddha Sadhana pracitce has changed to a Medicine Buddha Empowerment at 7PM and all are welcome.

Wednesday, June 27, 7 PM Khenchen Pema Sherab, Khenpo Norgay and Ani Dawa will do Medicine Buddha Practice with us. (This changed a few days ago to a Full Medicine Buddha Empowerment for the evening of June 27th at 7pm Eastern Time)
The full empowerment is "open" so no prerequisite to come and participate, a love offering accepted. You are invited and welcome. Maybe get in the car from Indiana and take a little drive over, same for PA, or if you are up in Michigan...come down for the empowerment at 7PM today.

More Information about Khenchen Pema Sherab at this link:
http://www.palyulohio.org/news/khenchen ... 22-to-628/

Khenchen gave a Vajrasattva Empowerment not to long ago. This is a great little
sound clip I found of 100 syllable Vajrasattva Mantra.
Dzongar Khentse's teaching at the beginning of the sound clip, then the mantra of Vajrasattva:
