Rinpoche´s Instruction June 20, 2009  - Dear Dharma Friends, I pray that all of you are well and were greatly enriched by the spiritual experience of the First Annual Drukpa Council that was held in Druk Amithabha Mountain, Nepal. The event was a wonderful success and I truly felt great admiration for all the selfless concerted efforts and contributions of all the Drukpa Centres and Sanghas;
12th Gyalwang Drukpa His Holiness, the twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa was born in northern India, at Lake Rewalser or Tso Pema (the Lotus Lake) - a place sacred to Guru Padmasambhava. The birth took place during lama dances celebrating the auspicious 10th day of the first month. Several propitious omens occurred
The Drukpa Lineage The lineage acquired the name Drukpa in the twelfth century when, assuming the human form, Avalokiteshvara - the Great Lord of Universal Compassion - manifested in Tibet as the outstanding disciple of Mahasiddha Lingchen Repa. This sublime being was called Drogon Tsangpa Gyare,

Khamtrul Rinpoche´s Appreciation:

"Starting from 2009 and ongoing till the end of 2012 the international Drukpa Centers, Monasteries and followers have done and continue to do major acts of merits for the Longevity of His Holiness, the Gyalwang Drukpa and all Enlightened Masters. I would like to thank all the people and centers who contributed and also Drukpa Vietnam for the recent life release of more than one hundred thousand (>100.000) sea creatures. Till date more than 188 million lives have been saved and to be a part of this global act of unconditional love, log on to My finale and biggest thanks to Jigme Kunzang Singye for single handedly setting up the Drukpa Shabten website and looking after it for all these years."

Your Holiness, may Your activities spread love and peace all over this planet and stop its destruction! May all beings receive Your Blessings! May You Live Long!
