Well,  the confluence of golfing and the Buddha has come another step closer.

Please find this article:


And notice that our very own Rinpoche, though not the “high priest” they claim, is in the same set of print as the golfing great Tiger Woods.

Congratulations, Rinpoche-la!

LKR Birthday in the Park!

Well we had the annual EC BDayBBQ for LKR on Aug 9, and it was a rousing success!

A fine day, not to hot and, even better, not too cold (for those who know these Bay Area summers….!) and many turned out to pay their respects to Rinpoche after his now-fading malady.

Rinpoche-la was in great spirits and health. It was also an opportunity for both Rinpoche and Ewam Choden to publically thank Ani Gendun for her absolutely essential service to Rinpoche during those recent hard times. Below, that’s her with Rinpoche!

Today, July 25th, is Lama Kunga Rinpoche’s birthday.

His Dharma students wish him a most happy and healthy birthday.  We are grateful for his presence, his assorted teachings and empowerments,  his kindness and guidance, and particularly for putting us on the Buddhist path and maintaining it.

Rinpoche, we prostrate to you,  and thank you,  and request you to remain with us for a long long time.

THE LONG LIFE PRAYER FOR LAMA KUNGA RINPOCHE (composed for him by H.E. Sakya Trizin)

All joyful Lord of stainless being,
Primordial purity embodied,
To you we pray;
Look with compassion.
Upon all beings, and
Grant them the blessing
of the Dharma:
Lama Kunga Rinpoche,
The manifestation of
Supreme bodhicitta,
We supplicate you to live long.
