The Chagdud Gonpa Spiritual Directorate would like to thank Jigme Tromge Rinpoche for his foresight and devoted efforts at inviting His Holiness, Sakya Tridzin to Padmasambhava Peace Institute in order to bestow the most sacred treasures of Apong Terton.
The Red Tara meditation practice of that cycle holds together all of our Chagdud Gonpa sanghas, and made this confluence of His Holiness and Chagdud Gonpa a truly historic and deeply meaningful moment in time with far-reaching benefits, not only for our sangha, but for all beings everywhere. Being in the midst of so many of Chagdud Rinpoche’s disciples and sanghas, to say nothing of receiving these blessing along with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, added to its preciousness and enduring inspiration. Our enthusiastic thanks to Jigme Tromge Rinpoche and his devoted sangha for creating this opportunity.
Furthermore, we are truly grateful to Jigme Rinpoche for his continual vision and efforts in maintaining the strength and integrity of Chagdud Rinpoche’s lineage of practice and teachings, not only at his seat at PPI, but at all the Chagdud Gonpa Centers and Practice Groups that he has visited over the years. As well, he is maintaining the integrity of our connections with our lineage holders and sanghas in India, Nepal and Tibet.
Jigme Rinpoche has put his whole heart and loving energy into preserving and enriching the lineage of Chagdud Rinpoche, serving the sanghas of Chagdud Gonpa with empowerments, teachings, and his insightful personal advice. Again, our gratitude goes out to Rinpoche with our aspirations for his long-life and the unhindered flourishing of his dharma activity.
