We are sorry for the inconvenience to those who have already traveled to Bodhgaya to take Ayang Rinpoche’s 10-Levels Amitabha Teachings, but Rinpoche has changed his schedule for Bodhgaya this year. As there are many people from Nepal who wanted to practice Phowa for their loved ones who were lost during the April 2015 earthquake, Rinpoche could not disappoint them and had to change the schedule. He will now be giving his Phowa Course as well as Introducing True Nature of Mind Teachings.

December 24, 2015 – January 1, 2016 XXII Annual Phowa Course in Bodhgaya, the holy place of Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment.

January 2-4, 2016 – Interviews for those wanting to take his Introducing True Nature of Mind teachings. Everyone is required to have an interview before being allowed to attend these teachings.

January 5, 2016 – Introducing True Nature of Mind teachings

January 6, 2016 – Milarepa Tsog Offering Prayer

This is what Rinpoche wrote regarding taking the Introducing True Nature of Mind course in Bodhgaya. 

“For those people who have not received Introducing True Nature of Mind Teaching from me before, a private interview will be scheduled from 29 December 2015 to 4 January 2016. If you have not received True Nature of Mind from me before, you are not allowed to receive the teaching without an interview. For those people who have received Introducing True Nature of Mind from me before, you can join the teaching if you want, but there is no need for an interview before the teaching.

People who need an Introducing True Nature of Mind interview must register for a particular day and time. When you reach Bodhgaya please register at the Amitabha Temple new construction site to the right of the Kalachakra ground. Please call Truelha at 09939994993 for more information.

When you register for your interview, you will receive a receipt. You must bring your receipt to your Introducing True Nature of Mind interview, and also to the teaching. Without that receipt you cannot attend the teaching.”

Please make your hotel and travel arrangements as soon as possible, as Bodhgaya is always full of pilgrims in December and January.

Yellow Dzambhala puja November 20-26 in Bylakuppe

Dzambhala at Amitabha Retreat Center in Nepal

The annual Dzambhala puja, also called Yangdrup, at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe will be held this year from November 20-26. Yellow Dzambhala is an emanation of Ratnasambhava, one of the five buddha families, whose enlightened activity is increasing and whose essence is generosity. Some people practice Dzambhala to achieve spiritual prosperity, although this deity is also associated with wealth and prosperity in the material world. Dzambhala practice is said to bring wealth, prosperity, success, good fortune and luck, long life and wisdom. He is depicted holding a mongoose spouting jewels.

Ayang Rinpoche has said that anyone sponsoring Dharma activities gains the same merit as the practitioners. The full cost of the puja for 280 monks, nuns, khenpos and lamas is $21,650. The monastery will appreciate your donation of any amount (tax deductible for US donors). It will be like a drop of water mixed with an ocean of merit.

Names of loved ones for dedication prayers will be accepted until November 18, 2015.
