Therefore, I am advising and encouraging to all of you, Please practice with group  if possible, in your area or Centre or individually, from 31-October till 2nd November 2016, if all three days is hard to manage then make sure to do it on 1st November, which is mean actual “Long Life Mandala offering Ceremonies of “GRATITUDE TENSHUG” it is a great opportunity to ourself to accumulate the merit by joining any virtuous deeds and dedications to HH sMenri Trizin Rinpoche’s Long Life and good Health.

  5. In case if your time dos not allow to join in pray and practice, don’t worry, you could choose any thing that you could do and dedicate for the same reason, such as make a Commitment to do it, if can’t do it on those days or only one day, then on 1st November, which is the main day, or not make any one angry, rather think to do something good and positive, that may be helpful to others etc and then dedicate it to H.H. for his Health and Long Life that is ok too.

Rinpoche’s New Year Message

Losar Tashi Delek (New Year card)

 

Losar Tashi Deleg!

 

Happy Losar Wishes! Hello to all my students, friends, and supporters of Yeru Bon Center and BCH worldwide!

 

First of all, I wish all of you Losar Tashi Deleg (Lo: New year, Sar: New, Tashi: Prosperate or Good Luck, Deleg: Joy, may all be good).

 

Losar is one of the most important celebration and gathering of Tibetan families. We gather in our homes., as well as out, on these days and celebrate Losar together. Traditionally, the day before New Year’s Eve is known as 29th day ofthe 12th Month of Tibetan Calendar. At the Monastery we have big gathering after three or four days of a special Ceremony for the Yidam deity. At the end of the special Ceremony, we make a public blessing with Dhogpa. Dhogpa is a cleansing all bad luck and negative energy of individuals or the community. It is meant to pacify negative energy, and to receive blessings from your Rinpoche.

 

In the evening, for dinner we will have a special Thugpa (soup) called Gu Thug. This is a kind of stew, with a collection of nine different symbolical words written on pieces of paper. We put the papers in mixed flour and make balls with the paper inside, and open them when having family dinner.

 

Then next day, which is the last day of the  old year, is very busy. Each family cleans their house and prepares their altar, placing on it very rich offerings to welcome the New Year, and also preparing Tibetan Khabsey, which is traditional pastry somewhat like a cookie, made of dough boiled in oil, and other good things to eat. Then everyone will put on their new clothes for New Year. When we were children, the most exciting part was to get new clothes from our parents!

 

Then most of the family members go to bed, but the Mother and elder sister wake up very early in the morning to get fresh water from our drinking water source. The idea is to be the first person to get the fIrst water of the year, and to make tea and make offering, first to your own altar, and then to take tea and Khyabsey to your teacher in the area, and wish him happy Losar, and then receive blessings from him.

After that, all family members wish each other a happy Losar by saying” Losar Tashi Deleg.” Then we take a bit of Chemar (which is made by mixing Tsampa and butter), wish each other longl ife, prosperity and good luck. Then we put the Chemar in our mouth, and take our seats at the table.

 

That day is mostly for Family only. No one goes out anywhere, except to receive blessing from the Rinpoche. On the first day of the New Year traditionally we don’t spend money, don’t use any negative words or harsh words, and are very polite and positive to all.

 

In the morning everyone prays for happiness and health of all family members, and for great prosperity and good luck in the days to come.

 

So on the very first day of the New Year, it is important to plant the positive seed of our fortune and luck with our thoughts. Therefore, is important to think positive thoughts and good wishes for all, including ourselves and our loved ones.

 

At the same time, enjoy life and time with your loved ones, because we never know when such joyous time will appear again. Therefore, be positive and be present with what you have.

 

Everyone should remember to join at your nearest Bon Center, if possible, for the 660th birth anniversary of Gyalwa Nyam Med Sherab Gyaltsen on February 13. On this day, the effectiveness of all our prayers is multiplied by 100,000.

 

Also, on that date, join in the Third Annual Yeru 24 Hour Global prayer for world peace and harmony, from 7 – 8 pm your local time.

 

I pray for everyone to enjoy happiness, good health, long life, and world peace and harmony!

 

With blessing and prayers,

Yours,

 

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche

THE HARMONY OF PRAYER, THE SOUND OF MEDITATION, THE PEACE OF BÖN

February 13, 2016

It’s hard to believe it has been three years since our first 24 hour Global Prayer Event!

Yeru Bön Center and Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche invite Bön practitioners and friends of Bön to participate in our third annual Global Prayer Event.  This is an event where we pray and meditate for world peace and harmony.

Last year’s participation was well over 2,000 people from all over the world.  The majority were Bönpos, but we had US soldiers and other non Bönpos praying throughout the world.

We received letters, photos and more from people around the world participating in this incredible event.

This year’s global prayer event will be February 13, 2015, the birth anniversary of Nyamed Shenrab Gyaltsen, the founder of sMenri Monastery, the main monastery of Bön.

On this auspicious day, every prayer we pray is multiplied by 100,000. On that day, we ask all practitioners to pray and meditate for one hour (or more) any time between 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in their local time zones.  Gather as a sangha or by yourself, in a private place or in public.

This year, Rinpoche will release a new prayer, specially written at sMenri for this Global Prayer Event, to all registered participants.

This is how it works.  Our Global Prayer Event will begin at sMenri Monastery in India, at 7:00 pm local time.   His holiness, Monks and Bön practitioners in that time zone will pray the selected prayer and meditate for two hours, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. local India time.  Prayers and meditation will continue with the next time zone (going West), until our prayers have gone full circle around the world.

There is no fee for this event.  We ask only that you register your participation and time zone by February 11, 2016.  After you have registered your name or group name, Yeru Bön Center will send the list of participants to His Holiness at sMenri Monastery.  A special blessing will be given to all participants.

During your event, please feel free to post photos or messages of your gathering or meditation on Facebook or twitter. This way, everyone participating around the world can see the individuals and groups gather, uniting all Bön practitioners for this spectacular 24 hour global event.

Participation in all time zones will keep the Global Prayer Event strong and effective.

Rinpoche’s message

Message from 
Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche
This week I would like to offer you two quotations to think about.
The first is a quotation from Tonpa Shenrab, Founder and enlighten teacher of Bon.
“Take an example of yourself and so don’t ever give harm to others.”
Think well from deep inside you and summarize the meaning you learn from this advice of Tonpa Shenrab.
The Second is an advice from the great Dzogchen Yogi, now as “Je sun Trotsang Drug Lah” 956-1077.
This advice of this teaching is very spontaneous and given on the spot as per circumstances.  This advice is given to few Monks in return to their request of a blessing from him.
  • Get blessing from within your own mind.
  • Be generous to those are in poverty.
  • Practice patience with those who are fierce and wild in conduct.
  • May you generate compassion to those who are helpless.
  • Do virtuous deeds of three doors (Body, Speech and Mind) . and  apply them for the benefit to others then to self alone.
  • Be that as a blessing if you are seeking for the blessing.
Read these stanzas from time to time, think to understand the meaning of it and summarize within yourself to confirm.  Reflect how this advice can give you a profound sense of self and how this can help give you a more meaningful life .
I am always here for you, and can be reached atrinpoche@yeruboncenter.org
With blessing.

Rinpoche’s weekly message

Tashi Delek

 Precious and Priceless

There are many things we believe to be precious and priceless.  Take a moment to think what you consider to be precious and priceless. Maybe it’s a child, a pet, or a tangible item like a car.

Have you thought about life?   This life, your life, my life  is precious and priceless. We must be mindful and aware of the value of our life ~ Precious and Priceless.  We must also be aware of the uncertainty of how long we may have our life.

Therefore, it is important to think positively in every aspect of your life.   Take care of your body, speech and mind.  Work on your spiritual path of compassion, loving kindness, joy, and happiness  Cultivate satisfaction into your life.

Natural satisfaction in your precious and priceless life is really about happiness.  It is simple.  With no disappointment and no complaints, all is good and happy for your precious and priceless life.

We must do our level best to cultivate our life in the right way, at the right time.  Bring natural satisfaction to your precious and priceless life.

I wish for all to take time to consider your life.  Be happy.  Be conscious of your life.  Be conscious of your strength to transform your precious and priceless life to be happy.

With Blessings,
Nyima Rinpoche

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s Dedicated teaching and Long Life Prayer for His Holiness 33rd sMenri Trizin

To all of my students, Bon practitioners, and  supporters of His Holiness sMenri Trizin,
You know that His Holiness the 33 rd sMenri  Trizin is facing some  health issues, and that I am going to sMenri Monastery to serve him.  Throughout the Bon world, in Tibet, India, Nepal and other countries, hundreds of Bon monks are performing Tsok rituals and prayers for the health and long life of His Holiness.  While I am gone, I would like to ask all of you to join these monks in praying for the health and long life of His Holiness.
There are two ways that we can pray for His Holiness’s health and long life. You can do either way, or both, as you choose.
The first way is to do the Long Life Prayer and mantra of Tsewa Ringzin, this mantra is:
So Trum A Kar Mu La Ting Nam Oed Du Mu Ye Tse Nyi Dza
I have prepared a video of how to do this prayer, Click on Tsewa Ringzin
and you will be directed to my dedicated Teaching, Long Life Prayer and Mantra for His Holiness 33rd sMenri Trizin Rinpoche .
The second way is to pray the Supplication Prayer for Long Life for His Holiness. This prayer is part of the common Daily Prayers. It is:
Rab jam chog chu gyal wa se che ki
Chen tse ye she ngo wo chik du pi
Zab gye shen ten pel wi trin le chen
Lung tok ten pa’I nyi ma tag char shog
You can find more information about these prayers on the Yeru Bon Center’s website at yeruboncenter.org, The audio prayer will be posted on the website on September 5, 2015.
Please do these prayers as many times as possible, to accumulate the benefit of the prayers for His Holiness.  Dedicate the merit of your prayers for the benefit of His Holiness.
Another way to benefit His Holiness is to save lives.  You can release fish or birds, and save animals from being killed in other ways.  Dedicate the merit of saving these lives for the benefit of His Holiness.
Those of you who are in a Bon Sangha, please meet as a Sangha if possible to do these prayers.  If you cannot pray as a Sangha, please do these prayers individually or with one or two others.
Please keep a record of how many times you do these prayers.  For those praying in a Sangha, I ask the leader of each Sangha to report to me with the total number of the prayers the Sangha has done.  For those praying individually, please report to me with your number of prayers. You can contact me by email at rinpoche@yeruboncenter.org.   I will then inform His Holiness about the number of prayers you have all done.
I thank you for the care and devotion you have shown to His Holiness, and for your prayers for his health and long life.
With love and prayers,
Your Rinpoche
Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche
