current summary information from many sources: via Lama Rinczen; Agnieszka Zych; Tomek Ja; Thea,

Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche is in critical condition, taking breath rarely and his pulse and blood circulation is very week. However he woke up (about 12:00 am CET) demonstrating total control over physical body and ask all his disciples to chant as many KARMAPA KYENNO as possible!

H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and all Lamas in Benchen monastery in Kathmandu has gathered close to Rinpoche's room and meditating.

I am afraid I just heard from Nepal that Tenga Rinpoche is dead and in tukdam. Everyone should recite Karmapa Khyenno's.

Kye ma! Kye hu! So many authentic great Lamas are leaving us. We are like babes in the woods. To Whom can we turn? Who is there to guide us?

My heart goes out to all of Tenga Rinpoche's students. Although I'm sure you must feel abandoned, now is the time to merge your minds with His Wisdom Mind. :namaste:

CHOG-TRUL TEN-GA RIN-PO-CHE
THUG-GONG CHÖ-YING CHIG-SE-KYANG
LAR-YANG TEN-DRO CHI-CHE-LE
TRUL-PE DA-SHAL NYUR-CHAR-SOL

Surpreme emanation Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche,
Even though You have merged Your intention into one with Dharmadhatu,
For the sake of the Doctrine and beings, in general and in particular,
May the moon-like face of Your emanation rise again soon!

This supplication was composed by H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche in the early hours of 30th March 2012, in the presence of the precious
remains of Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche. Immediatedly translated by Sherab Drime (Thomas Roth).

Tenga Rinpoche passed to state of Thugdam 1932-2012

March 30 2012
When Rinpoche awoke shortly after midnight, Sherab Wangchuk informed him that all those requested were present. Rinpoche was then helped to sit up and began to speak his last will. He requested several times that his words be recorded so that there may be no mistake later on. Among Rinpoche's wishes was that some gold objects that had recently been offered to him, be placed inside the large Maitreya statue in the main temple as well as in the golden finial on top of the temple rooves. This has already been done.

It was not immediately apparent, but after a while it was noticed that Rinpoche didn't require any moving anymore. He instead sat up very straight and still and did not seem like a sick person any longer. While Rinpoche had previously been feeling very nauseous, all of that was gone and he seemed to be in no more discomfort. Occasionally he would ask for a sip of water or juice.

After a little while Tenpa Yarpel was called again and Rinpoche made it very clear that he wished his body to be cremated. Being even more specific, Rinpoche directed that the four fire rituals for the cremation should be conducted by our lamas and monks of Benchen monastery, by Tsike Chokling Rinpoche, by Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche and by Tulku Yönten of Thrangu monastery and their respective monks.

Again, a little later Sherab Wangchuk was called and directed to extend Rinpoche's best wishes and aspirations to all of his students in Europe, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Indonesia, and especially to Mrs. How Yok Bee, Mr. and Mrs. Peter and Nora Rohde-Kvaede and to Mr. Tim Tashi Boldt and family.

Yet again a little later Tenpa Yarpel was called. Rinpoche expressly stated that it was his wish that Tenpa Yarpel will be given the rank of Senior Treasurer, while Tashi Özer will be Junior Treasurer of Benchen Monastery. This was put in writing and will be adhered to.

By now the night had worn on and it was the early hours of 29 March. At 3:00 a.m. Rinpoche called for his niece Karmo. After that Tenpa Yarpel was called again and asked by Rinpoche to ask Sangyum Dechen, the wife of Tsike Chokling Rinpoche, to be invited for the next morning. Rinpoche stressed again how he wanted his best wishes to be sent to everyone. At 6:00 a.m. H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche came and stayed with Tenga Rinpoche until shortly before 9:00 at which time Sangyum Dechen arrived. Rinpoche took note of her arrival but said nothing. At around 9:30 a.m. she asked Rinpoche's permission to leave and was excused.

After that Tashi Ozer asked Rinpoche how and when one should begin to look for Rinpoche's next incarnation. Tenga Rinpoche was very explicit about it saying "Ask H.H. the Karmapa! His advice will be very clear."

For more than 28 hours Rinpoche had been sitting up very straight and still and for much of that time he seemed to be in deep meditation. At night Tenpa Yarpel was called again into Rinpoche's presence and asked to record his words. It was Tenga Rinpoche's request to Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche to continuously take care that all the traditional rituals of Benchen Monastery, the dances and pujas etc., will be continued uninterruptedly in the future. Tenpa Yarpel then requested Kyabje Tenpa Rinpoche to please return very quickly, to which Rinpoche smiled and nodded his head.

Around 1:00 a.m. Tenga Rinpoche mentioned that he had clearly seen his teachers, the previous 11th Tai Situ Pema Wangchok Gyalpo, the previous Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche, the previous Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and the 2nd Jamgön Kongtrul Palden Khentse Özer before himself. Then, in the early hours of 30 March, at 3:24 a.m. local time to be exact, he finally passed on. H.E. Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche had visited several more times before that.

Two topics both relating to the passing of Tenga Rinpoche have been merged.

I lifted the picture from the Benchen site....I found it inspiring and thought it might inspire others, as well, which is why I posted it.

The picture Cone reposted from the Benchen site is taken by Sherab Wangchuk, the other one that Sönam refers to is taken by Tempa La. The photos have been taken at the same time and you only see very small difference. Just for the record

All the best

Namo Guru Be

Dear Friends in the Dharma, Vajra Sisters and Brothers, today morning at 3:24 am Nepalese time (just before 12:00 am CET) our Sun of Dharma, Embodiment Of Refuge and Of All Qualities Of Bodhisattvas, Venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche has entered Parinirvana. Rinpoche currently is resting in the after-death meditation, called Thugdam.

His Holiness Karmapa Ogyen Trinle Dorje told us a few years ago: "If you follow your Lama's teachings, you are never separated from him. You are with your Lama always and everywhere, and he is with you every time and at any place, even if you two are on the opposite sides of the world. However, if you do not live according to the teachings of Lama, you are separated from him even if you spend most of the time with him in the same room"

If anyone asks what we, students Rinpoche, should do now, the answer is simple: we decide whether the Lama left us or not . If we think about Him as an ordinary man, in our heart there will be sorrow and grief because of the separation. However, if we recall what He has taught us, we pursue it in the heart and we apply in our life, the Lama will be always with us. Never pass away.
Currently, when He is in deep meditation, it is very special time. We should now pray to Guru and perform wholeheartedly our practices which we learned from Him. With sincere practice used at any time of life, we will make our Lama satisfied. It is said that if Lama is satisfied, this is the highest of the offerings that we can submit to all Buddhas.
