The Benchen Monastery Community is under the spiritual guidance of both His Eminence Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and the late Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.
It provides information about the Dharma centers in the East and West which are connected to the Rinpoches. And it provides information about various social welfare projects especially targeted at poor and needy people living in the East.
Therefore His Holiness' sister, Jetsun Ngodup Palzom has invited all students, individuals, groups and centres to join in, and to accumulate recitations that will be said by them or their group over the next year (2016, the Tibetan year of the Fire Monkey) as an offering for the benefit of everyone. She is asking for a commitment from each individual or group who wishes to join in, meaning an accumulated number of recitations will be offered during the year by each individual or group.
The Sangha of Benchen Phuntsok Ling together with Dharmahaus Benchen Tashi Ling will accumulate 2,000,000 of the Dharanis for His Holiness activities and Long life. The accumulation will start on Losar February 8, 2016 and go on for one year.
In order to celebrate Losar - the Tibetan New Year of the Fire Monkey starting February 9, 2015 - together with Lama Ngawang Tsultrim various rituals will be performed in Benchen Phuntsok Ling.
Among these are "The Verses of the Eight Noble Auspicious Ones" by Mipham Rinpoche and the "16 Arhat Puja".
Begin: Saturday, Februar 6 at 10:00 AM
End: Monday, February 8 at 4:00 PM
Tuesday, February 9 at 7:30 AM Losar (2143) will be celebrated.
Please consider the general information on courses and retreats. Here you will also find an overview of all courses in Benchen Phuntsok Ling.

From Tempa Lama, November 28, 2015
On 13th November our Benchen Monastery participated a big conference on environmental protection for Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and nunneries in the Himalayas. The senior monks Dawa Sherpa and Karma Yonten Lophel went as the Benchen delegation to participate in the conference at the Gyuto monastery, Dharamsala. This year we have received a very nice certificate for this year's efforts for the environment from His Holiness Karmapa. The Benchen monastery is very much dedicated to work for environmental issues.
