Many of you may have noticed that CAS is no longer "CAS" but "CAS of Thousand-Arm Chenrezig" !!
We have applied to the Commission of Charities and have received their blessings to the official change in name --
The name was bestowed to CAS in 1997 by our late precious Teacher, Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche, a great, holy Elder of the Drukpa Kargyu Tradition, Uncle-in-Law to the King of Bhutan, President of Nepalese Buddhist Association and someone whom the 100th Ganden Trisur called ".....my true Spiritual Friend" --
Definitely, it was HH the Dalai Lama who is the "ultimate-final" inspiration to CAS's new name, recalling the time when His Holiness told bb and 20 plus beings @ CAS in year 1999 / 2000 at Dharamasala, that He accepted and would take care of all things-cum-beings @ CAS until Enlightenment is reached --
Ultimately, too, it was our precious Root Teacher, the 100th Ganden Trisur who gave us His permission and blessings as, according to Rinpoche, it is "good to have a "Buddhist name" and to have an explicit name of "Chenrezig", who is HH the Dalai Lama --
His Holiness the Dalai Lama, to all Tibetan Buddhists, is, of course, Chenrezig / Avalokiteshvara / Guan-Yin, in human form by way of ancient prophecies, theological inferences, etc etc --
By pure coincidence, an old friend sent us this nice clip......
The thousand eyes of Thousand-Arm Chenrezig is the personification of the one thousand Buddhas of this Fortunate Aeon and the thousand arms of Chenrezig is the Thousand Universal Monarch that accompanies and upholds the holy activities of these thousand Buddhas --
What utter flattery and disproportionate blessings of a name for the rag-tag gang of beings @ CAS !!
"Om Mani Pemay Hung...... !!"
bb & other frightful beings @ CAS
of and belonging to the Thousand-Arm Chenrezig
A note, though, friends who write checks to CAS, do please continue writing to the "Charitable Assistance Society", as we are still thus where DBS / POSB is concerned !!
