Event Calendar of The His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche

November 19, 2011

At 7:30 a.m., 54 disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center gathered in Dehradun, India to reverently greet His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche perfectly completed his twelfth retreat. As soon as he emerged from the retreat room, he went to pay homage to His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang to offer all the merits accumulated from this retreat to His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang. The sky was cloudy that day, but when Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche emerged from the retreat room, the clouds above the room started to churn. All of a sudden, the sun burst through the clouds and its beams darted forth, and the clouds changed into the shape of a dragon. The sun broke through the clouds and cast its golden rays all over. The clouds gradually dissipated, and the vast blue sky reappeared. It was just like the Buddha’s light illuminating the world. The sentient beings obtained the help of auspicious Buddha Dharma, and  regained their pure nature. The marvelous signs of the perfect completion of an accomplished practitioner’s retreat are truly amazing!

Meanwhile, many different kinds of birds, including unidentifiable colorful birds, eagles, swallows, doves, and so forth, flied from nowhere to circle above His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s retreat room. Sometimes they hovered, and sometimes they perched in trees. They constantly chirped and sung lively songs. Seeing this, the disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center, felt extremely joyful and praised the great practitioner’s sublime merits! His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche followed His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang’s instructions to carry out the retreat, totally disregarding himself and entirely benefiting sentient beings. The various auspicious signs at the moment when Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche completed the retreat clearly showed his extraordinary achievements!

On November 13, 2011, His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, under His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang’s instruction, started his retreat at Jangchubling Monastery in Dehradun, India. His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang knows that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has devoted himself to liberate countless beings and help them with absolutely no regard for himself. His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, therefore, especially instructed Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to conduct the retreat at Jangchubling Monastery this year. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche always listens to His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, his root guru, and follows instructions accordingly. He never finds any excuse or postpones anything. Even though Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche is very busy in running his owns companies and taking care of more than 1,000 disciples and their families, however, once he receives the instructions from His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang , Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche immediately takes action, and arrives at the time specified by His Holiness the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang.

After emerging from his retreat, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave the food that was used for the Tsok offering in the retreat to a male disciple, instructing him to distribute the food among the disciples who had come to greet Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche at the completion of his retreat. This disciple is reticent and seldom interacts with others. Compassionate Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche was so attentive that he particularly instructed this disciple to give out the blessed nuts and cookies to other disciples, so as to let him have the opportunity to make virtuous connections with everyone. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, as a guru, has always cared deeply about his disciples, and created auspicious virtues and virtuous conditions for them!

The disciples of the Glorious Jewel Buddhist Center reverently waited in a queue for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to lead them to New Delhi. When Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche arrived, the ordained disciples made offerings to His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on behalf of sentient beings, and led the other disciples to do prostrations three times. His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche bestowed blessings on the disciples with his benevolent eyes and instructed them to rise and board the buses. When Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche led the buses to leave Dehradun, many different kinds of birds still hovered for a while.

In the evening, compassionate Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche let all of the disciples who came on this trip have the precious opportunity to enjoy dinner with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, so as to help them accumulate virtuous conditions. Again, everyone was immensely grateful.
