Rinchen Terzod by Yangthang Rinpoche starts November 7th

Postby phantom59 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 6:21 pm

Event : 3 month Richen Terzod by Yangthang Rinpoche
Start Date : November 7
Venue : Orgyen Dorje Den
Poster : http://www.orgyendorjeden.org/rtzd/YTRf ... _final.jpg
Website : http://www.tashicholing.org/pdfs/rinche ... er%201.pdf

Orgyen Dorje Den invites you to join us for a historic Dharma event. At the request of Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche, Yangthang Rinpoche will bestow the transmissions of The Rinchen Terzod.

The Rinchen Terzod, the Treasury of Precious Termas, was compiled by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great with the blessings of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Chogyur Lingpa. The precious collection includes many of the major termas that had been discovered before 1889 and is quite extensive. It will take 3 months to confer the entire cycle of hundreds of empowerments.

Venerable Yangthang Rinpoche is an emanation of the great Vimalamitra and the immediate re-incarnation of the Terton Dorje Dechen Lingpa. Rinpoche is a main lineage holder in the Nyingma Tradition and one of the most highly respected Buddhist teachers in the world today.

Gyatrul Rinpoche says that …

“Yangthang Rinpoche is truly a precious jewel.”

Unfortunately, just got word that this has been cancelled.

I should say that the word used was "postponed," and not cancelled, just to be clear.

No definite date or rescheduling info has been given, but when/if I hear something, I'll post it here.

please give us more bay area insider information :)

I have heard it's also because lama's visa problem.
When a government has such a big, uncontrolled power to undirectly stop a dharma event happen, probably it's also a good idea to find someone powerful to make a phone call. (if they know any)

I am from Taiwan. some lamas have big difficulties to get in Taiwan due to fake lama issue. Even Rinpoche can come, their lamas sometimes can't.

But the Speaker of our Parliament has faith to Penor Rinpoche; once people wanted to invite Yangthang Rinpoche to hold a big event and they asked the Speaker to help.

He asked: 'who's yangthang rinpoche?' they answered: 'a lama who once gave Penor Rinpoche empowerments.'

Then the Speaker appeared in the event himself, holded Rinpoche's hand, brought our current president to there too. You can imagine there can't be any visa problem anymore.

Just got the following email:

Dear Sangha,

This evening Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche called and spoke with Gyatrul Rinpoche and Lama Chonam. He has confirmed that his health is strong and affirmed clearly that he intends to come to Orgyen Dorje Den to bestow the Rinchen Terzod. He said that "Gyatrul Rinpoche has asked me and the students are expecting me and so this is the year! I have every intention of giving the Rinchen Terzod and fulfilling this request."

We are sorry for the postponement--but it appears our merit may actually be sufficient for the transmission to occur!
We still have some logistical issues to work out, but we think we should be able to start the wangchen on Friday, November 26th.

We just heard the good news and wanted to let you all know just as soon as possible; the duration and suggested donation remain the same as was previously announced, but as we get more information regarding the starting date and the daily schedule we will let you know.

Sincerely,

The Oryen Dorje Den Board of Directors

Hm. Apparently this is a cycle of hundreds of empowerments. Yoicks. No wonder it takes months.

Ok so... why is this being done? What's it all about?

Update from ODD:

Dear Sangha,

This evening the ODD Board of Directors had a meeting during which we called Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche. Rinpoche sounded great and he went over the timing of the Rinchen Terzod Wangchen very clearly and carefully.

He will start the Rinchen Terzod on December 1st, 2010.
He will conclude the transmission on February 18th, 2011.

Rinpoche reviewed the dates with us a few times, asking "is this clear?" As a result we feel confident that these dates are as firm as possible at this time. Hopefully this slight shift in the starting date is better for most people since traveling on the Thanksgiving holiday weekend can be challenging and costly.

We will be update the website to reflect this and encourage you to start planning to attend all or as much as you are able. In future emails we will send more information--please stay tuned and thanks for your patience and flexibility!

Sincerely,

The Oryen Dorje Den Board of Directors

Why are they wearing white scarfs or caps (or what is it actually?), on their heads?
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

Hm. I have more beginners' questions. If you take seven or eight hundred empowerments, how can one possibly keep the samaya obligations? Is the term "empowerment" being used in the same sense a gelugpa would use it?
