The monastic staff, board members, and students of Gaden Shartse Thubten Dhargye Lingsend you our most sincerest and warmest wishes on this Tibetan New Year. May it be filled with love, laughter, and peace!
To the students of GSTDL,
We wish you all a very Happy Losar and pray that your year is filled with harmony & kindheartedness. Communication has been limited in recent months, so as a means of auspiciousness for the new year, we would like to bring you up to date on Rinpoche's progress and development.
It's been a long year filled with challenges and difficulty, particularly Soponla's passing, but Rinpoche has been calm, composed, and persevered throughout. Rinpoche is very thoughtful and considerate. He's been diligent in his recitations, handwriting, and all other areas of his studies and is currently memorizing Chandrakirti's root text "Entering the Middle Way." Rinpoche keeps up with his English reading and writing and enjoys the company of the young monks we have at our residence. The young monks are great study partners for Rinpoche and we understand the importance of their presence in Rinpoche's upbringing. We also make sure to set aside time every day for Rinpoche to exercise and be physically active. At 9 years old, Rinpoche is growing rapidly and has developed a fuller physical figure.
It is our duty and responsibility to support Rinpoche and uphold the instructions and guidance Soponla left behind. We strive to do our best and kindly urge you to continue your prayers for the long lives and spiritual fulfillment of both Tulku Tenzin Thardoe and Lati Tulku Tenzin Jangchup Choepel.
Rinpoche expresses his sincere wishes to you and your families. Please keep your practice close and safeguard your mind. May you be free from all hardship and experience only peace and happiness. May compassion and wisdom radiate and inspire your every day.
Below are several recent pictures and videos we took of Rinpoche during different parts of his usual day that include his morning memorization session, recitations, water bowl offerings, and English lessons. We hope they bring you joy and inspiration.
