MONTPELLIER – May 11, 2014 – Practices of the Vase of Treasure (“Yangbum”) with the exceptional presence of Geshe Chapur Rinponché.

The practice of Namgyal Yangdrub was taught by Buddha Tonpa Shenrab to its students to acquire a long life, good health and prosperity. Filled with pieces of precious materials, as well as sacred ground of holy places, the vase is blessed by the ritual of Namgyal Yangdrub. Once the vase is consecrated, it must be kept in a clean and healthy place. The Yangbum creates a positive atmosphere and promotes good health, material wealth, spiritual well-being and success in our projects.

Outstanding Lecture on Breath Yoga (Tsa-lung)

The first of the six methods of the “Tantra Mother” of Tibetan Bön Buddhism is called “the Path of the Method”. This path contains the teachings of the elements, winds, spheres and canals of the body. This teaching will focus on the general framework of the Mother Tantra, which allows the passage from coarse bodies to subtle bodies. The practices of the five elements, the “Tsa Lung”, find their foundation in this part of the Tantra Mother.

Gueshé Rinpoche Chaphur

Geshe Chaphur was born in the Amdo Ngaba in eastern Tibet. It was recognized as the reincarnation of a great Master Chaphur Phuntsok Wangyal Rinpoche by His Eminence the Good-Gya Rinpoche and other great lamas. He received his diploma from Guéshé in 2008 at the monastery of Menri, the main monastery of the Bön tradition, under the guidance of His Holiness of Menri Trizin Rinpoche, holder of the Bön line and Menri Lopon Rinpoche.

He teaches today in his center in San Francisco and around the world. Geshe Chaphur is interested in research and is currently focusing on the poems and songs of realization of the masters of the oral tradition of Zhang Zhung.

NÎMES –  Sunday, March 16, 2014 – Teaching “To find happiness at the heart of our being”. To find happiness in the heart of our being through the practice of Tibetan meditation and yoga. ”  We often seek happiness outside ourselves. However, lasting happiness lies at the heart of our being, in the true nature of our mind, which is revealed in particular by the practice of meditation and compassion. Then there is peace, joy, and bliss inward, unchanging.  Lama Samten Yeshe Rinpoche.

Lungtok Tenpai Nyima Rinpoche, the 33rd Menri Trizin, spiritual leader of the Bön lineage being awake on September 14, 2017, the election of the next abbot of Menri Monastery, the 34th, is underway.

Here is the official announcement of the Yungdrung Bon Monastic Center Society, which contains more details about Tagdil, the ancient and unique selection process of the Abbot of Menri Monastery.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dated 21st December, 2017

Dear Bönpo Followers,

We hope you are doing well. I’m sure many of you are eagerly waiting for news about the appointment for the great successor, 34th Abbot of Menri Monastery. Since the passing of the 33rd Menri Trizin into paranirvana, the highest spiritual leaders of Yungdrung Bön have been deeply engaged in discussion concerning this selection. After much deliberation, we have finally reached a decision.

At this moment we are selecting geshes from Menri Monastery in India and also from Triten Norbutse Monastery in Nepal. We have decided to only include those geshes who are residing outside of Tibet due to present situation. There are about 60 geshes on this list.

On the 19th of December each name was put inside a special pill made of tsampa, and blessed medicinal substances and then dried in the sun.

On the 21st of December, the monks of Menri started the ritual for cleansing obstacles in the selection of the 34th Menri Abbot.

On the 22nd we started the main rituals which will take 6 days. During these days prayers will take place in the Protector Temple, where two special vases will be placed with all of the candidates names sealed in wax.

There, high lamas and monks will pray in the Protector Temple until the 27th of December. Prayers will be made to the Protectors and Deities, for help in choosing the most qualified geshe from the vase.

During this time the majority of Menri Monastery’s monks will pray in the main temple and offer 100.000 tsok offerings to Syipe Gyalmo. Concurrent to this, prayers will be offered in the Menri Abbot’s residence to the main yidam of Menri Abbot: Purbha.

On the morning on the 27th, H.E Menri Ponlop Rinpoche will shake the two vases. After shaking the first vase the name of the first candidate will spring forth, and after shaking the second vase the name of second candidate will similarly jump from its vase.

After the selection of those two names they will be put together in one vase. The high lamas will then pray for another 5 days.

On the 1st of January 2018 the vase with the two names will be shaken in the main temple in front of the statue of Buddha Tonpa Shenrab Miwo in the presence of the public. When the pill arises from the vase, everyone will be able to receive its blessings, and also have the opportunity to make their commitment, give their respects and seal their trust in the new Menri Abbot, who has been chosen by the Protectors and Deities. This is a most rare and special way for selecting an Abbot.

Please during this time, wherever you are, join in the prayers to support the selection of the best Geshe for the 34th Menri Trizin.

Important message from Lama Samten Yeshe Rinpoche

I have the sadness of telling you that a great light in samsara is extinguished. My Spiritual Master, His Holiness Menri Trizin Rinpoche, 33rd holder of the throne of the Bön lineage is awake.

If all the people of the Bön lineage or close to his tradition feel today as orphans; if this news has the effect of a sun that has fallen or a light that has faded, one must bear in mind that His Holiness is now awake, out of samsara, after a long and accomplished life in which he worked tirelessly for the dissemination of the teachings of the Bön Tibetan tradition throughout the world. With altruism and a deep sense of compassion, he lit lights all over our planet, transmitting the five wisdoms to all beings, leaving behind a precious heritage.

Menri Trizin Rinpoche entered peacefully in the spirit of reality in his practice room at the monastery of Menri, the seat of the Bön tradition, at 6:25 pm (Indian time), on September 14, 2017. He left in meditation, showing us the importance of the teachings.

We will keep you informed of the date of the blessing of receiving the precious bodily remains of His Holiness later.

Rinpoche
