Revisiting Shravasti: A Travelogue on the Consecration of His Holiness’s Temple

In Tibetan Buddhism, utmost importance is placed on causal conditions. When a guru makes a vow or grants an opportunity to disciples to do a virtuous act, they should accept it wholeheartedly, joyously devoting their all to the task. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche is a prime example of this. To fulfill the aspiration of his Three-Grace Root Guru, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has spent an enormous amount of money and effort toward the construction of the great Shravasti temple, thereby enabling this ancient land of Mayahana origination to regain its former glory and facilitate the spread of the Buddha’s teachings throughout the world to benefit even more sentient beings. continue reading »

The Guru Yoga Puja Is Performed to Perfect Completion at the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center in Kyoto, Japan

Every August, His Eminence Vajra Guru Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche holds a puja at the Kyoto Buddhist Center during the Daimonji Festival, a popular Japanese folk event. This year he took time out of his busy schedule to compassionately preside over the Guru Yoga Puja, helping everyone to rapidly accumulate good fortune for cultivation. During the puja, a Lamp-Offering Ritual was conducted, during which Rinpoche compassionately gave the attendees the chance to light lamps; these were passed down among the attendees one after another as offerings to the guru, the Buddhas, and the Bodhisattvas in order to reduce sentient beings’ hindrances along their path to learning Buddhism. Rinpoche also went out of his way to expound the auspicious Long Life Prayers of the Drikung Kagyu Order’s 36th and 37th throne holders, His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang and His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, and explained the causal conditions and profound significance of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s Long Life Prayer bestowed by the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang. Once the puja had come to a perfect completion, Rinpoche granted the attendees an opportunity to view a Manchurian copy of the Buddhist Canon, and afterward allowed them to make prostrations to it so that they could accumulate resources and good fortune for practicing Buddhism. continue reading>>

Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche Donates to the Disaster Relief Fund for Victims of the Hualien Earthquake

On February 6th, 2018, a major earthquake occurred off the east coast of Taiwan, registering a 6.0 on the Richter scale and hitting Hualien with a magnitude of 7.0. It caused severe damage to the city center, and several large buildings collapsed. At present, 17 people have been reported dead and 285 injured from this extremely disastrous calamity. With their homes destroyed, many local residents were separated from their family members and left out in the cold wind and rain; with nowhere else to go, they could only stay in temporary shelters. Physically and mentally traumatized, with helpless faces full of fear and exhaustion, the disaster victims were in urgent need of assistance.

In his great compassion, and despite still requiring enormous funds to complete the construction of a Buddhist temple in Miaoli, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche believed the more important and pressing matter was to relieve these victims’ suffering. As such, he has donated NT$3 million, and his business, the Glorious Jewel Group, has donated a further NT$1 million. On top of this, the Buddhism Foundation of His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang has donated NT$1 million as well, all in the hope of helping the victims of the Hualien earthquake to rebuild their homes as soon as possible! continue reading »
