Dear Sangha Members and Friends of the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center,
I have the great privilege to share with you one of the most beautiful announcements that I can make: the longtime wishes and prayers of all the PBC members and devoted disciples of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche have been answered.
Recently, His Eminence Terton Namkha Drimed Rinpoche discovered the reincarnation of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche on the eighth day of this month, just two days ago. He was given the name Palden Yonten Thaye Lodro Chokyi Gyaltsen!
At Padma Samye Ling, the North American Monastery of PBC, we enjoyed a great celebration for the 10th Day of Guru Rinpoche, and all the gathered Sangha rejoiced in this announcement with tremendous joy and excitement.
Now that we have discovered the reincarnation of Ven. Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche, H.E. Terton Namkha Drimed Rinpoche is requesting that everyone recite many Dusum Sangye prayers of Guru Padmasambhava. This is my wish as well. We pray for the continued success of all the Dharma activities of Khenchen Yangsi Rinpoche, that there are no obstacles and everything unfolds very smoothly, for the fulfillment of all of his wishes, and that he will benefit the Teachings and all sentient beings for aeons.
Yours in the Dharma,
Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal
