Today, the 10 day of the month - Guru Rinpoche day - is the birthday of our Grandfather teacher, Kyabje Chadral Sange Dorje Rinpoche, who has reached the auspicious age 100 years! Although I have no ways of knowing about his achievements and realizations, and little do I know about the details of his secret life, few would disagree, that Kyabje Chadral Sange Dorje Rinpoche has been an exemplary inspiration in the lives of most Nyingmapas, and continues to be a shower of blessings to many.
May we kindly remember him in our prayers, and dedicate the merit of our practice for his long life. May he live long and continuously dwell in the lotus seat in our hearts; May he look upon us and care for us with his great kindness; May we actualise his body, speech and mind, and may our realization become equal to his.
"If the aspiration for enlightenment is your motivation in coming to see me, there is no remedy except meditative practice. I, too, will only practice." - Zurpoche Sakya Jungne
