Dear Friends @ CASonline,
 
At the risk of information overload, bb is sending you further information on
Gama Senge Rinpoche's --

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Also:
 
  With the almost immediate enthusiastic response from many of the online friends and beings, bb is further clarifying here
that it is not necessary to attend all sessions if it is not possible within one's working schedule although it will be most blessed to 
attend all purely for good of the world --
 
  The least is to:
 
ONE
Register for the puja -- for oneself or others -- for beings alive or dead ( !! ) -- either on day of event itself or
through CASonline -- sc23jul@singnet.com.sg --
 
TWO
Also, to make many many many BEST / compassionate / positive / wishes-aspirations for all mother sentient beings in the
world ....
even the inanimate objects [ from the Metta Sutta !! ] through simply rejoicing [ see below*** ] or making prayers to Lord
Buddha Amitabha with His mantra [ OM AMI DEWA HRIH ] or His holy name: "Namo Amitofuo"  / "Amitofuo !!"**
 
[**The Amitabha cycle of Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok carries a slightly longer mantra ]
 
[ ***To rejoice / feel happy / wishing well the entire Puja-Programme is also an excellent way to
establish connection here ] 
 
 
THREE
To register, do please give / email us your name(s) .... for
1) Rebirth to Pure Land for Departed friends / relatives OR
2) The"Living" for accumulation of Merit / Destruction of obstacles
 
____________________________________________________________________________________
 
Some Thinking:
 
In the impossible event that Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok is a freakish liar*, all beings who establish karmic links with
Him -- whether positive or negative -- will NOT attain Liberation at the time of death in Lord Buddha Amitabha's
Pure Land ---
 
*Deduced impossible given that He is one of the main Nyingma Teachers of HH the present Dalai Lama and
His Holiness is, of course, one of the most recognized , loved, trusted and respected figures within and without the Tibetan Buddhist world !!  
Not forgetting, too, that Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok -- in His previous life as Terton Sogyal -- is also one of the main Nyingma
Teachers of the previous Dalai Lama ........
 
 
As such, it should be a dreadfully precious opportunity to attend / register yourselves for the entire programme /
get others to attend / or simply to rejoice in the programme !!
 
 
The beings @ CAS are themselves fitfully honored to be whatever little service they can to holy
Paltrul Rinpoche and this great, holy Cycle of Lord Buddha Amitabha !!
 
 
*****************************************************************************************************************
 
By the way, CAS will require beings to volunteer to stay around to help to offer drinks, towels etc to precious Rinpoche and monks,
especially in the afternoons on days of the great Amitabha Pujas should no beings @ CAS can make a breakaway from work during these
days --
 
By the way, too, the setting-up time and day will be from 5 pm to about 7 pm and on 20 Feb '06 respectively at NACC auditorium --
[ Do see "Nice notice" below !! ]
 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Nice Notice:
 
All beings who will love to clear their accumulated wicked karmas / dispel obstacles ( from work, life, etc !! ) / create lovely
causes for very "fastly" sit-on spiritual thrones oneself to Turn-the-Wheel-of-Dharma for all mother beings ....... will be
welcomed to help to heave Rinpoche's precious throne, set-up the holy shrine and mandala of Buddha Amitabha....
where hopefully, holy relics shall manifest !!

The actual Meant-to-be Content of this email:
 
 
Emanation of the great Paltrul Rinpoche:

Gama Sangye Rinpoche?s sublime, holy Teachers --

 

  

Khenpo Ngawang Pelzang ( Khenpo Ngaga )

 

Khenpo Ngaga is the Lineage Master of all Nyingma teaching-transmission systems still surviving today, including all the transmission systems held

by all the 6 great Nyingma monasteries of the Kathok, Palyul, Dzogchen, Shechen, Mindroling and Dorje Drak.

 

The great Khenpo Ngaga is a supreme Master of the holy Teachings, a Master of Masters, a Teacher of Teachers and is recognized

emanation of the Bodhisattva Manjushri-Vimalamitra who had pledged, in the Dzogchen tantras, to manifest in the human world every one hundred

year.

 

Khenpo Ngaga held the spiritual throne as the Grand Abbot of the great Kathok Monastery* for 13 years.

Khenpo Ngaga ?was a source of learning and spiritual attainment, having trained thirty-seven great khenpos and presided over thirty thousand

ordinations during his tenure. He founded shedras** at Palyul and Dralak Monasteries, institutions that continue to uphold their traditions of teachings

today.?

-- Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche in ?A Marvelous Garland of Rare Gems?, an authoritative account of the biographies of the great lineal Masters

of the Dzogchen Lineage.

 

As a sign of His supreme spiritual accomplishments, Khenpo Ngaga?s body sublimated into a pure relic of great blessedness and holiness

even while He was alive and the eight auspicious signs, the unique marks and signs of a fully-enlightened Buddha are sometimes manifested and shown

clearly on His holy body especially during the holy days when the students? karmic propensities are purified through engaging in spiritual activities.  

 

Khenpo Ngaga is one of the main Root Teachers of HH Penor Rinpoche, Supreme Head Emeritus of the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan

Buddhism, Arik Tulku, Khenchen Munsel, Khenchen Lekshey Jorden and oceans of the greatest luminaries: ?the 4 great pillars?, ?the 8 ridgepoles?,

?the 21 domes?, ?the 28 rafters?, ?the 1,000 joists? and ?the countless braces?.

 

*Kathok Monastery is the most ancient Nyingma monastery.

**Buddhist philosophical colleges.

 Tromge Choktrul Arik Rinpoche

 

?By his presence alone, he pacified diseases among humans and livestock, averted frost, hail, blight, and drought, and even caused

wild animals to be calm and to avoid harming one another as they naturally gathered around him. Arik Rinpoche was a majestic

wish-fulfillling gem, a treasure vase yielding all that is positive and auspicious.

-- Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche in ?A Marvelous Garland of Rare Gems?, an authoritative account of the biographies of the great lineal

Masters of the Dzogchen Lineage.

 

It was a sign of Tulku Arik?s meditative power that he had been able to practice in Tromt?har throughout the bad times,

though on several occasions the Chinese  [ Communists ] sent Tibetan malcontents to harass him. The first, a woman, marched in,

sat down and launched into a diatribe. Tulku Arik made no reply, but remained in immovable meditation. Finally, she fell silent,

powerless to say more. The next day she returned and respectfully made an offering.

?Oh no!? Tulku Arik protested. ?If you come like this, the Chinese [ Communists ] will be offended, and it will be hard on you. You

must come as you did yesterday.?

?I have no power to come as I did yesterday,? she replied, and afterward she became a devoted follower of the dharma.

-- Chagdud Tulku in ?Lord of the Dance?

 

Arik Rinpoche is Himself one of the main disciples of the great Khenpo Ngaga.

 

Students of Arik Rinpoche span almost all the surviving greatest Nyingma Masters today in Tibet, including the 84th great Throne-Holder of the

mother Kathok Monastery C Khenchen Lekshey Jorden Yangsi, Lhoga Rinpoche.

 

Arik Rinpoche?s students include also Chagdud Tulku, the great pioneer of the Buddhist teachings in the West, with centers extending across

North and South America as well as its hugely successful printing houses.

 

Chagdud Tulku?s outstanding students include recognized accomplished western Masters such as Lama Tsering Everest and the famed translator,

Richard Barron who is currently one of the most authoritative translators of some of the most critically important texts and who has translated for

HH the present Dalai Lama.

 

 

Khen Lama Rinpoche Achuk C

Drupwang Lungtok Gyatso

 

Gama Sangye Rinpoche?s Root Teacher, Drupwang Achuk Rinpoche, resides in the great Ya Qing Monastery in which more than eighteen

thousand monks make their permanent residence.

 

Achuk Rinpoche is known as the Moon-like Master of Tibet while Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, a main Nyingma Teacher of HH

the present Dalai Lama is known as the Sun-like Master of Tibet.  

 

Achuk Rinpoche served Arik Rinpoche more than 33 years and throughout the entire difficult period during the early days of the communist

occupation of Tibet, Achuk Rinpoche served as His Teacher?s attendant, enduring unspeakable hardship withour regard for His own health or life.

 

Achuk Rinpoche is a fellow student of Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche* and is recognized as someone who had completely attained the fruition of

Dzogchen practice.

 

Achuk Rinpoche is the seniormost disciple or Heart-Son of the Enlightened Master, Tromge Choktrul Arik Rinpoche and is empowered as a

holder of His Teacher?s lineage.

 

* Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche is Himself one of the greatest Nyingma teachers who had exchanged teachings with HH Penor

Rinpoche, Supreme Head Emeritus of the Nyingma Lineage; Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche C

the latter of whom is a late Teacher of the late 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and almost all the major Tibetan Masters of the century.

 
 
 

Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok - Pure Vision Treausre Text on Buddha Amitabha, Pure

Land Practice

 

 

The Grand Puja of Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land Practice will be performed according to the Pure Vision Treasure text of Sertha Khenpo

Jigme Phuntsok.

 

 The Grand Puja will also include unparalleled practices to liberate one?s deceased loved ones. 

 

Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok is one of the main Nyingma Teachers of HH the present Dalai Lama. For more information on Sertha Khenpo

Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche:

http://www.geocities.com/cas_sg/articles/khenpojigphun.html

 

Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok has an especial affiliation to Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land Practices.

 

Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche has offered a holy aspiration that any being who forms a karmic link with Him, be it positive or negative,

will, without doubt, be led to Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land at the time of death.

 

Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok is one of the greatest Terton or Revealer of holy hidden Treasure Texts and this cycle of Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land

Practice is one of the singularly most powerful texts to be revealed on Pure Land Practices in recent times with unbelievable ?miracles? that

included the showering of uncountable number of holy relics from the sky at the conclusion of its Grand Puja.

 

An ?Aside No. 1?:

 

Gama Sangye Rinpoche?s Root Teacher C Achuk Rinpoche* - sent a letter to Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, requesting for permission to conduct Pure

Land Practices according to Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok?s revealed cycle.

 

Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok replied thus, ?Be it for one being, ten beings, hundred beings or ten thousand beings, do hold the Grand Puja and

practices related to my Pure Vision practice of Lord Buddha Amitabha as often as is possible!! With all my heart, I rejoice and offered my

prayers for all beings to be liberated into Lord Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land!!?

 

Achuk Rinpoche has hence commanded His student C Gama Sangye Rinpoche - to hold Grand Pujas, initiations and all practices related

to Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok?s cycle on this Buddha Amitabha?s Pure Land Practice as often as is possible all across Tibet and inconceivable

manifestations of Buddha Amitabha?s blessings and compassion are witnessed by thousands of students whenever the practices are conducted.

 

This will be the first time Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok?s Buddha Amitabha Pure Land Practice will be revealed and transmitted in Singapore in its entirety.   

 

* Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok and Achuk Rinpoche are known by Tibetans in Tibet respectively as the Sun and Moon-like Masters.

 

An ?Aside No. 2?:

 

Sertha Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok with His distinguished Entourage, on a trip to the main Sakya temple in Tibet, requested the care-taker of the

great temple to be allowed to take His seat on the spiritual throne of the Sakya Trizin, the Supreme Head of the Sakya Lineage.

 

The care-taker deferred adding that when the late Panchen Lama visited, He had not even make such a request but in fact sought blessings from the

throne.

 

Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok then explained that should He be allowed to take His seat on the spiritual throne of the Sakya Head, He will, in

accordance to a commitment He made to His Sakya Teacher, take His next re-birth into the Sakya lineage, to protect and flourish the Sakya

teachings in His next life.

 

In addition, Rinpoche revealed that Guryi Gonpo, Two-Arm Black Mahakala, main protector of the Sakya lineage, has Himself requested Rinpoche

to take birth into the Sakya lineage.

 

Unfortunately, owing to the lack of merit of sentient beings, the auspicious connection has not been forged !!
