Recognitions and Congratulations - From VEN. ANGWANG KHYENTSE RINPOCHE

   

  CONGRATULATIONS

  Greatest leader of Buddhism, H.H. Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu:

  With extreme happiness, I sincerely convey my utmost respect and praise for the descent of the ancient Buddha into this world! This is the good fortune of all living beings. The one book A Treasury of True Buddha-Dharma is enough to provide living beings with endless benefits. The ways to liberation are all in this book! Only the wisdom of the ancient Buddha, Dorje Chang Buddha, could produce such a textbook that enables people to understand and directly realize the Buddha-dharma! 

  I thank H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III Wan Ko Yeshe Norbu for giving living beings such a source of good fortune and wisdom!

BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO VEN. ANGWANG KHYENTSE RINPOCHE

Ven. Angwang Khyentse Rinpoche is the abbot of Gensa Temple of the Sakya sect. The Gensa Temple is located in the Changdu district of Tibet. The eighty-two-year-old Ven. Angwang Khyentse Rinpoche is the major successor to the dharma lineage passed onto him by H.H. Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, who was the most virtuous practitioner in all of Tibet. The Buddha predicted that Ven. Angwang Khyentse Rinpoche would live until the age of eighty-five. The rinpoche, who is in solitary retreat on a long-term basis, is deeply respected by all of the temples of the Sakya sect. He possesses great supernatural powers and is proficient in the major and minor Five Vidyas. His practice of Tummo is especially revered throughout the snowy plateaus of Tibet. At lower than twenty degrees below zero Celsius (lower than four degrees below zero Fahrenheit), the rinpoche is still able to expose his chest and emanate heat from his belly that can thoroughly cook an egg within a few minutes.
