His Holiness the XVIIth Karmapa Orgyen Trinley Dorje unexpected blessing of the Dharma House Benchen Tashi Ling

June, 2nd, 2014 around 4pm – our wildest dreams suddenly became reality!
After the meeting with the Weihbischof Dominikus Schwaderlapp at the famoust Cologne Dom church His Holiness Karmapa unexpectedly visited Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche’s Dharma House Benchen Tashi Ling in Cologne. We were overwelmed by His Holiness’ kindness and tremendously fortunate to be able to offer a traditional Ku Sung Thug (Body-Speech-Mind offering). We are also very happy that not only our Dharma House members were present at the welcoming ceremony but also the representative of Benchen monastery Tempa Yarphel, the Benchen lamas: Lama Yonten Palsang and Lama Ngawang Tsultrim, representative of Benchen Karma Kamtzang Poland Lama Rinchen, representative of Lotus Direktihlfe Hanne Pohlmann and representative of Benchen Phuntsok Ling Carina Krämer-Bleicher.
The heart connection between our Guru, Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche and His Holiness made possible for us to be a part of this precious event and we stay deeply touched by the generosity and blessing of His Holiness. Also, our gratitude goes to Tenga Rinpoche’s main Chagdzö Tempa Yarphel for his continuous efforts to make the unimaginable possible.
May Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche’s swift reincarnation appear soon so that His Dharma acitivities shine far and wide under His Holiness’ vast Buddha-umbrella. May His Holiness live long and return to Cologne soon! Karmapa Khyenno!
Dharma House Team,
Martin, Lioba, Thea, Tim Tashi Boldt
