Lhasey Lotsawa, our in-house translation team!
Lhasey Lotsawa is pleased to announce the release of our new translation of The Bindu of Great Bliss, a sadhana for Lotus Essence, Chokgyur Lingpa’s great bodhisattva emanation from the Lotus covered pure realm. Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo received this sadhana from the bodhisattva Lotus Essence himself in a pure vision after Chokgyur Lingpa’s passing. We have also translated the extensive mending-apology and the aspiration to be reborn in the Lotus covered pure realm, both composed by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé. This is a truly precious collection of liturgies. Through our connection with these extraordinary bodhisattva masters and their blessed lineage, may we all be miraculously reborn in the eminent Lotus-covered Pureland!

Global Magnetizing Accumulation
Nine months ago, Rinpoche requested that all his students take up the magnetizing practice entitled “Giant Cloud of Blessings” as part of their daily practice. .
“ Learning how to work together as a global sangha to magnetize auspicious conditions for the resounding of the Dharma and the vast aspirations of the purest intent to be swiftly fulfilled .”
~ Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche
Since last Dakini Day, we have accumulated an extra 3,260 recitations. This brings our grand total to 65,106 recitations.
We rejoice in the merit we have accumulated, and encourage everyone to join us in this crucial magnetising activity. When we rely on this prayer, we gain both outer and inner benefits. In the outer sense, we gain the ability to benefit all living beings. On the inner level, we develop the ability to control discursive thoughts, and thereby attain unrestrained control of the body and the mind

Sharing Practice with Sangha Blog
In this blog section, we have invited sangha members across the globe to comment on practice-related topics. By sharing our insights from working with and practicing the teachings, we can all benefit. Each month we will pick a new topic and we hope to see all of our family participating in the discussion. Please be sure to post your comments to the blog below so that we can keep these conversations lively and fresh. We also encourage you to discuss these topics in your Dharma Stream or center meetings.

The royal ministers, who serve the teachings—༔
may their intellect increase and may they be skillful.༔

May all kingdoms in which faith in the teachings abounds༔
have happiness, and may their obstacles be pacified.༔
