Event Calendar of The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

November 9, 2011

Early next morning Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche led the disciples to Jalandhar, a major city in Punjab Province in northern India, roughly three hundred sixty kilometers from New Delhi. As the fleet of buses embarked for Jalandhar, the sky had the auspicious sign of a vertical rainbow. To welcome His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, local believers had hung many huge Dharma photos along traffic arteries, and at the entrances of hotels and restaurants where the group was to stay and visit. Believers here would welcome Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to preside over the auspicious puja and benefit the many sentient beings in Jalandhar.

After a ten-hour, bumpy car trip, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and the disciples arrived at their hotel and had dinner together. Disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center were grateful that their guru, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, again bestowed opportunity for accumulating virtues, by dining together. At the end of dinner, representatives of the restaurant presented a two- layered birthday cake to celebrate the birthday of attendees who were born in the month of November. Then they invited Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to cut the cake. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche enlightened the attendees: “A birthday is a mother’s  day of hardship; therefore, it should not be celebrated. Since the cake  is already here, it would be wasteful not to share it. Those nineteen people represent all people who  have the same birthday; each should pray to prolong the life and increase the merits of their mother.” His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche personally cut the cake and compassionately enlightened the gathering: “The first cut, cuts off the sentient being’s affliction. The second cuts off the affliction of affection. The third cuts off the evils of disease.” Usually, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche does not eat dessert at nighttime. But today Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche will not worry about his waist line, but for sentient beings, and he will eat some cake.  On hearing this, many disciples shed tears because of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s never-ending caring for sentient beings. During the dinner, another auspicious sign appeared, a lunar halo shining in the sky.
