August – October

His Eminence Ling Rinpoche received several groups for audiences at his residence in Dharamsala during August and September, including groups from Vietnam, Korea and Malaysia. A group from Amitabha Buddhist Center (FPMT) in Singapore also visited and received the oral transmission for “Praises to the 21 Taras” from Rinpoche.

On the 31st August, H.E. Ling Rinpoche gave the Amitayus Long Life Initiation to a large gathering of international students, at Tushita Meditation Center in Dharamsala.

In early September, Rinpoche was invited to give a talk to the Tibetan Women’s Association, on the occasion of their 33rd anniversary of being re-established in exile.

Rinpoche sustained a simple ankle fracture after slipping during his daily walk near Gyuto Monastery on the 15th September. He was flown to Delhi on advice from H.H. the Dalai Lama, and underwent successful surgery. Rinpoche was very well cared for by Surgeon Dr. Kamal Dureja and his team of Doctors.

In October, His Eminence Ling Rinpoche consulted with the Nechung Oracle in trance, at Ling Labrang in Dharamsala. The main point the Oracle advised was that Rinpoche’s recent ankle fracture was not an obstacle of Rinpoche’s, but that Rinpoche had taken on the obstacles of all sentient beings and of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
