Event Calendar of The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

September 17, 2011

At 10 am, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche went to wait for His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang in reverence, one hour earlier than the appointment. At 11 am, under the instruction of His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center were granted the opportunity to meet with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang in person. The disciples entered the office reverently to seek an audience with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang, who personally bestowed each disciple an exquisite prayer scarf (Khata) with eight auspicious symbols, a string of prayer beads, and silk paintings of Buddhist scenes (Thangkas). Throughout the process, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche stood beside His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang making sure that all the disciples have this rare opportunity to be blessed. At that time, in the doorway, a 6-year-old disciple with an oxygen saturation level of about 60% felt very sick, and was unable to stand up. After the compassionate Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave this disciple blessing, the 6-year-old who had felt great discomfort, been unable to eat, and lacked physical strength, was able to eat immediately after receiving blessing from Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and was free from altitude sickness. Moreover, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche created such rare virtuous karmic connection for the disciples, enabling the disciples to receive the personal blessing of His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang. The disciples wept uncontrollably when they thought of the profound grace and kindness of their guru.

The tour guides and group leaders were also able to have the precious opportunity to seek an audience with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang and receive gifts personally bestowed by His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang. They were immensely grateful. Had they not worked for the tour group to Tibet led by His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, it would not be as easy for them – being local residents –- to see His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang. Similarly, without His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, it would be impossible for the disciples to have such an auspicious opportunity to meet with His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang and receive
the blessing. His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche continuously created virtuous karmic connections for the disciples and led the disciples in pilgrimage tours despite his own fatigue. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche blessed and cared for the disciples around the clock. What’s more, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche offered all the contributions made by the disciples during the dinner banquet to His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang so as to help his disciples accumulate resources for their Buddhist cultivation. The disciples deeply realized the vast, unsurpassable grace, kindness and compassion of His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche.

That night, even though His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was exhausted from a full schedule, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche still compassionately had dinner with the disciples, creating the auspicious karmic connection of enjoying food with Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for the disciples. At the dinner banquet, 13 waiters and waitresses brought their palms together, praying for the His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s blessing. Regardless of his tiredness, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche blessed these servers with a Dharma instrument, reciting mantras for a very long time. At the time, a cook quickly came into the hall, taking her hat off and kneeling down with her palms together. At completion of the blessing, the waiters and waitresses were all very grateful and joyful. Some tugged their shirts, saying that their whole bodies felt hot. Others joyfully pointed to the crowns of their heads and showed to others.

His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche again blessed the food and instructed that it should be distributed to the disciples to eat. The disciples were immensely grateful. When His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was about to leave the restaurant, blasts of wind suddenly occurred outside the restaurant. Even the trees were shaking violently. It is impossible for such weather condition to appear in Lhasa in the Fall. This tremendously auspicious sign was truly praise from the heavenly Dharma protectors for His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and his great accomplishments!

In Tibet, it is very difficult to obtain fresh fruit. The Sino Tour Company  purchased a lot of fruit specifically for the group members to eat enough fruit. It was obvious that they truly cared. His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was like a father to the disciples, caring about their condition all the time. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also instructed the hotel to prepare rice porridge for the disciples who felt sick. His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche benevolently protected the disciples so as to prevent them from suffering, and always wants to give the best to them. How fortunate the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center are!
