***** HAPPY 80th BIRTHDAY to VEN. LAMA KUNGA THARTSE RINPOCHE ***** Wishes for continuing long-life and good health

Ven. Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche, originally from Ngor Monastery in Tibet, has kindly and generously shared his dharma wisdom with us in many ways for over forty years. We are infinitely grateful for Rinpoche’s display of patience and compassion, his profound teachings, his heartfelt empowerments, and his enduring patience.  Over the years, Rinpoche has kindly instructed students in Tibetan cooking as readily as in spoken and literary Tibetan language. We learn from him how to make tormas and treasure vases. He performs marriage ceremonies and conducts tsoks. He translates and interprets sadhanas and texts, guiding us in our understanding of them.  And especially, he imparts how and why to practice the Bodhisattva path of Vajrayana, measuring the teaching for each individual student. How fortunate we are to have such a wonderful Lama in our midst, and that we could meet him !

Rinpoche’s 80th birthday is on July 25, 2015.  Let’s honor his continuing presence and show our appreciation.
