H.H. Penor Rinpoche Hospitalized in Intensive Care



The following is being sent from Namdroling Monastery as noted:

Dear Friends and Students of Palyul,

This letter is primarily for close students of Palyul, but has been posted in case anyone needs the information herein.

We wish to inform you that His Holiness Penor Rinpoche has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at Columbia Asia Hospital in Bangalore on March 24, at 3 AM. Health care arrangements for His Holiness are under the constant supervision of a Western-trained physician, and the condition of His Holiness has somewhat stabilized.

On the first day of the Second Month (27 March, 2009), many of the highest Nyingmapa lamas will join the Namdroling sangha to continue with beneficial practices determined by divination. Among those who have indicated they will attend are Dzogchen Rinpoche, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Minling Khenchen Rinpoche, Ralu Rinpoche, and Ringo Tulku Rinpoche.

For close students, it would be quite good if you could stay home from work on this day, or gather together in a harmonious fashion at your local dharma center, to practice. For those of us who cannot stay home or join with others, please don't worry but just keep the mantras lightly in mind while engaged in daily activities. All of us will dedicate our practice to the long life of His Holiness, and for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche has advised the repeition of 10,000,000 recitations of the Riwo Sangchö practice. Currently, monks at Namdroling monastery are carrying through with this practice. Vajrasattva practice is also quite good, but our main focus should be on Riwo Sangchö.

All of the high lamas have indicated that a positive result is very much dependent on us, the students of His Holiness. It is very important to keep in mind our connection as a global sangha community, to put aside past disagreements and not to engender any new ones. We have been reminded that our pure Samaya needs to be maintained at all times, not only in the presence of His Holiness or the precious teachers who instruct us. We should especially refrain from speculation and any form of gossip, particularly with respect to the condition and medical treatment of His Holiness. As His Holiness has taught us, we should keep our minds in a relaxed state.

The greatest offering we can make for our Tsawé Lama is our love for one another as a family, while maintaining pure samaya with our blessed teacher, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche. Through our practice and the healing of our connection with one another, may the light of the Dharma grow as strong as possible, and may the good health of His Holiness swiftly return!

Please do forward to close students of Palyul so that all may join together in practice now.

With blessings and kindest regards,
Lama Lobsang Chophel
