Dear NyingmaNet friends,
In NyingmaNet session #7 on May 29 we honoured Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche and our Nyingma lineage with a talk by Jack Petranker on lineage, a film of the most recent Planting Seeds of Healing trip to the Amazon and a reading in English of a longevity prayer composed by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche for Tarthang Tulku. The session concluded with Lama Palzang and Pema Gellek leading us through an invocation of Padmasambhava and a beautiful long life prayer composed by Chatral Rinpoche for Rinpoche.
We thank Rinpoche for bringing us into touch with the wisdom of his lineage, and we thank everyone who has been participating and presenting in these first seven sessions of NyingmaNet. We feel that the NyingmaNet medium could continue to be supportive in strengthening cooperation and communication within our Nyingma international mandala.
We propose to start a next series of sessions—maybe not weekly but biweekly or monthly beginning in August. We will be reflecting on how best to proceed and invite all of you to let us know your thoughts and ideas. Please join us again Friday, August 21. We will be sending a new link.
June 5 will be a very special Saga Dawa Full Moon Buddha’s Enlightenment celebration: you can join online mantra chants in Amsterdam, Cologne, Rio de Janeiro and Berkeley. You are also warmly invited to sponsor prayers in the Buddha’s Enlightenment Prayer Walk organised at the Odiyan Enlightenment Stupa by Nyingma Trust.
We thought you might also be interested in a program June 7,14 and 21 called Quotes Conversations based on the international Tarthang Tulku Quotes Project. You can find more information and the zoomlink to attend here.
