PURPOSE OF RETREAT TOP
Vajrayana Buddhism, the "Diamond Path," offers many deity practices, such as those related to Chenrezig, in which the deity mirrors to us our natural enlightened mind. As our practice brings us into ever closer relationship with the deity, delusion and obscuration are revealed as illusory, and the energies of deluded mind transform into their natural enlightened qualities.

Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas, and is known by many different names, including Avalokiteshvara in India, Kuan-yin in China, and Kannon in Japan. It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in Chenrezig’s mantra, OM MANI PADME HUNG HRI, and it carries with it the power to purify our mind’s obscurations. We develop the enlightened quality of compassion through Chenrezig practice and mantra recitation as well as by compassionate conduct toward all beings. By continuously chanting Chenrezig’s mantra intensively, practitioners acquire a vast amount of merit, which is then dedicated toward the enlightenment of all beings.

This retreat focuses solely on the recitation of the mantra OM MANI PADME HUNG. Verbal recitation is encouraged so as to develop within the individual the deepest qualities of mindfulness, compassion, and peace, through the blessings of Avalokiteshvara ( Guanyin ) and a pure mind. By reciting millions of Mani, all the myriad living organisms in your body will be blessed by Avalokiteshvara ( Guanyin ), and when you die even the smoke from the cremation of your corpse will have the power to protect whoever inhales it from rebirth in the lower realms." — Karandaryuha Sutra.

A Buddha capable of extraordinary feats beyond the capacity of any other being, such as stating exactly how many drops of rain would fall during a rainstorm lasting twelve years,  would not be able to fully describe the merit generated by a single recitation of the Mani.

The merit accumulated will be dedicated to World Peace, well-being of all nations, end of calamities and epidemic, prosperity and good health.

---------------

Audience: I have been always reciting the prayer OM MANI PADME HUNG, but without actually knowing what it means. What is the meaning of OM MANI PADME HUNG?

His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama: Prayers and also the recitation of mantras, just simply repeating the sound, does not help much. Particularly, OM MANI PADME HUNG is a Buddhist mantra and the whole Buddhist system is to utilize human intelligence in a maximum way, through that way, to transform our emotions. That is the Buddhist approach. Other traditions, most of the theistic religions approach mainly through faith, through prayers to God/creator. They are also immensely powerful, wonderful thing. In fact, all religions/traditions carry the same message, same practice, that is, the practice of love and compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, self-discipline. It is the same. Most of the theistic religions regard prayers as the most important part, but for Buddhists, Buddha stated, “You are your own master. Your future depends entirely on yourself”. So in Buddhism, Buddha taught, “Study is very very important. Knowledge is very important in order to utilize human intelligence fully." We have to know how to use, and in order to utilize, you must know the mental system and so on. So you pay more attention to study, to understand what the Buddhist system is. Then with the understanding of the whole system and transformation of our mind;  with that clarity, full of knowledge, and with ultimate aim and sincere motivation; with all these, then reciting this mantra is very helpful.

OM MANI PADME HUNG mantra has six syllables: OM-MA-NI-PAD-ME-HUNG. OM has three letters (A-U-M) that represent our body, speech and mind. There are two levels – impure and pure. Body, speech and mind on the impure level are the basis of suffering. Therefore, the experience of pain and pleasure mainly from body and mind on the impure level can be transformed into the pure, ever-pleasant body and mind, and automatically speech also. OM represents the impure part and the pure part. The question is how to transform three impure (body speech and mind) into three pure (body, speech and mind)? Then come MANI and PADME. MANI means jewel symbolizing altruism, infinite altruism. PADME means lotus symbolizing wisdom. The combination of altruism and wisdom is represented by HUNG. HUNG carries the meaning combination. The proper way/method to purify/transform from the three impure (body, speech and mind) to the three pure (body, speech and mind) is through the combination of altruism and wisdom.

 

WHY GROUP PRACTICE?   TOP
Group practice is analogous to a drop of water merging with the great ocean. Hence, the amount of merits accumulated by each practitioner is the same as that accumulated by the entire group.

OM MANI PADME HUNG  TOP
Closing the doors to the six realms, free sentient beings from sufferings and to be reborn in Buddha’s Pure Land.

OM closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the gods’ realm. The suffering of the gods arises from foreseeing one’s fall from the gods’ realm.  This suffering comes from pride.

MA closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the warring gods (asuras) realm. The suffering of these asuras is constant fighting.  This suffering comes from jealousy.

NI closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the human realm. The suffering of humans is birth, sickness, old age, and death.  This suffering comes from desire.

PAD closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the animal realm. The suffering of animals is stupidity, preying upon one another, beings killed by men for meat, skin, etc.  This suffering comes from ignorance.

ME closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the hungry ghosts’ realm. The suffering of hungry ghosts is hunger and thirst.  This suffering comes from greed.

HUNG closes the door to the suffering of beings reborn in the hell realm. The suffering of the hell is heat and cold.  This suffering comes from anger or hatred.


Explained and Praised by other great masters

"There is not a single aspect of the eighty-four thousand sections of the Buddha's teachings which is not contained in Avalokiteshvara's six syllable mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", and as such the qualities of the "mani" are praised again and again in the Sutras and Tantras.... Whether happy or sad, if we take the "mani" as our refuge, Chenrezig will never forsake us, spontaneous devotion will arise in our minds and the Great Vehicle will effortlessly be realized."

by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche  -- Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones

Om Mani Padme Hum is the mantra of Chenrezig. In the words of Kalu Rinpoche, "Through mantra, we no longer cling to the reality of the speech and sound encountered in life, but experience it as essentially empty. Then confusion of the speech aspect of our being is transformed into enlightened awareness."

by Kalu Rinpoche  --An excerpt from The Dharma

'Om' is the helper of the mantra. 'Mani' is the jewel. 'Padme' is the lotus flower. 'Hum' is the seed of compassion. Further, as 'om' is the combination of the three [sounds] 'A,' 'O,' and 'M,' it purifies the defilements of one's three doors. [So] establish the body, speech and mind of the Victorious Ones! When you call upon Arya Avalokitesvara with the names "Mani Padma" or "Padma Mani," it is a prayer of supplication invoking [him]. One should understand the detailed [teachings on the mani mantra] from the Ratnakaranda Sutra of the General Discourses, the Mani Kabum and other [texts].

Chenrezig is renowned as the embodiment of compassion of all the Buddhas, and is known by many different names, including Avalokiteshvara in India, Kuan-yin in China, and Kannon in Japan. It is said that all the teachings of the Buddha are contained in Chenrezig’s mantra, OM MANI PADME HUNG, and it carries with it the power to purify our mind’s obscurations. We develop the enlightened quality of compassion through Chenrezig practice and mantra recitation as well as by compassionate conduct toward all beings. By continuously chanting Chenrezig’s mantra intensively, practitioners acquire a vast amount of merit, which is then dedicated toward the enlightenment of all beings.

This retreat focuses on the transformation from the impure to the pure body, speech and mind through recitation of the mantra OM MANI PADME HUNG. Verbal recitation is encouraged so as to develop within the individual the deepest qualities of mindfulness, compassion, and peace, through the blessings of Avalokiteshvara ( Guanyin ) and a pure mind. "By reciting millions of Mani, all the myriad living organisms in your body will be blessed by Avalokiteshvara ( Guanyin ), and when you die even the smoke from the cremation of your corpse will have the power to protect whoever inhales it from rebirth in the lower realms." — Karandaryuha Sutra.

His Eminence Nubpa Konchok Tenzin Rinpoche's biography TOP

After the Lord Buddha's teaching flourished in Tibet, the New Secret Mantra Doctrine developed. This Doctrine was based on the Lord Buddha's Teaching. The great translator, Marpa, developed the Kagyu lineage during this "New Secret Mantra Doctrine" period. The Kagyu lineage then flourished in Tibet. From this very lineage there have been many highly accomplished masters and yogis, such as the Great Yogi, Milarepa; Dagpo Rinpoche; and Phagmo Drubpa.

The main disciple of Phagmo Drubpa was Lord Jigten Sumgon (1143 to 1217). He is the founder of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage.

At the age of 37, Lord Jigten Sumgon established Drikung Thil Monastery, the head monastery of the entire Drikung Kagyu Lineage. Lord Jigten Sumgon had countless followers. Previously, a Dharma King of Tibet (blood lineage) had come from western Tibet {Ngari} to the Drikung region and had settled there. One of the descendants of this king took his novice ordination vows from Lord Jigten Sumgon. His name was Nangso Lhopon.

At that time, and up until this day, there were two sections in the Drikung Thil Monastic Community. One is known as Ling Tod, and the other as Ling Med, which literally means "upper continent" and "lower continent", respectively. Nangso Lhopon became the spiritual master of Ling Med. He guided the monks spiritually, as well as provided for their daily needs. During the lifetime of Nangso Lhopon, both Drikung Thil Monastic Communities had abbots, spiritual masters, and a disciplinarian.

The residential palace of Nangso Lhopon, "Nubpa Lhadrang", was located west of the main shrine hall of the Drikung Thil Monastery. He thus became known as Nubpa Rinpoche, which means "precious one of the west" in Tibetan. From Nangso Lhopan, or Nubpa Rinpoche, there has been a continuous line of reincarnations right up until this present age, which is known as the "Degeneration Era".

One of the reincarnations of Nangso Lhopon, Jamyang Rinchen, was born at the time of the 16th Drikung Throne Holder, Gyalwang Kunga Rinchen (1475 to 1527). This Throne Holder, Gyalwang Kunga Rinchen, was recognized as the reincarnation of Lord Jigten Sumgon.

Jamyang Rinchen became the main disciple of Gyalwang Kunga Rinchen. As in his former life, Jamyang Rinchen again took care of and guided the monks at Drikung Ling Med. The important accomplishment of constructing Achi Prayer Hall (known today as Achi Khang) was one of his many virtuous deeds and activities.

Jamyang Rinchen's brother, Gonpo Gyaltsen, was the military commander of the Drikung region, while Gyalwang Kunga Rinchen remained the spiritual leader.

At that time in Tibet there were a multitude of regions, and with each region having its own king, battles were common. As military commander, Gonpo Gyaltsen had been involved in much warfare. He was responsible for defeating the opponents of the Dharma in the surrounding regions. He saved Drikung Thil Monastery and its contents of sacred Buddhist scriptures from destruction. During battle Gonpo Gyaltsen appeared to some in the form of the four-armed Mahakala, black faced and terrifying. He is therefore seen as a real manifestation of the four-armed Mahakala.

Gonpo Gyaltsen performed many great Dharma activities as well. He built the four-armed Mahakala statue at Nubpa Lhadrang, and during the consecration of this statue he offered his battle sword and placed it at the level of Mahakala's heart. Thereafter the Mahakala statue became very powerful and effective for those who worshiped there. In the past and to this day, there are many emanations of Mahakala in the form of black crows, snow lions, etc.

Nowadays we can see the natural body shape of these emanations on the rocks around the Mahakala Shrine Hall. A very special aspect of this four- armed Mahakala statue is that no particle of dust has ever settled on it; it remains perpetually shiny and clean -- a perfect representation of Divine Wisdom. Whomever sleeps even one night at the Nubpa Lhadrang is said to be blessed with what amounts to the Complete Accomplishment Practice of the four-armed Mahakala.

The two brothers have been reincarnates from that time until this "Degeneration Era". The present Nubpa Rinpoche is the reincarnation of Gonpo Gyaltsen, the emanation of four-armed Mahakala. He is also the reincarnation of the 11th Nubpa, Konchok Tenzin Mepham Gopo.

Our present Rinpoche, the 12th Nubpa Konchok Tenzin Rinpoche, was recognized (while still in his mother's womb) by the 34th Drikung Throne Holder, His Holiness Shewe Lodro (1874-1945). Rinpoche was enthroned when he was only five years old and started formal studies at the age of six. He learned Tibetan scripture and ritual practices from Pasang until the age of 14. At 15, he joined the Sun-ray Garden Institute (Nyichang Shedra, located near Drikung Thil Monastery) for higher Buddhist philosophical and Tantric studies.

Nubpa Rinpoche has received all of the Drikung Protector initiations and transmissions from H.E. Lho Drongtul Rinpoche. He has received all of the Fifty Collections of Initiation, the Treasure of Kagyu Instructions, the Treasure Discoverer Yangzab teaching (by Gyalwang Rinchen Phuntsok), and the Yamantaka from Regent H.E. Tritsab Rinpoche, as well as the Nyingma Collection of Initiations from the previous H.E. Nyizong Tripa Rinpoche.

By 1959, Rinpoche had mastered the Chinese language. By 1966, due to the political changes in Tibet, he had learned the ways of the farmer. Returning to Lhasa in 1974, he found work as a stone mason, but in 1979, Rinpoche resumed his academic career as the editor of the magazine, the "Tibetan Buddhist Association". In 1989, under the arrangement of the 10th Pachen Lama, Rinpoche joined the Peking Buddhist College of Higher Studies and there received his academic degree.

Rinpoche always says that his time spent learning about Buddhist teachings was very precious, as were the oral transmissions he received from Pachung Vajradhara, Khenchen Jigmey Phuntsok, and Gyendun Gyatso, among others.

In 1992, he arrived in India to serve His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Trinley Lhundub, his root Guru, who was then working to preserve the Drikung Lineage. While there, Rinpoche became the supervisor for the re-publications of the 24th Drikung Throne Holder's, His Holiness Kunkhen Ringzen Chodrak's (1595 to 1659), fifteen volume compendium of transcribed oral instructions from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition [Kabum]. Rinpoche was also appointed as the headmaster for the Drikung Kagyu Institute, JangChubLing. Rinpoche has received many authentic teachings and oral transmissions from those living and parinirvana masters.

Since that time, Rinpoche has conducted solitary retreats whenever possible in Lapchi, the holiest place of Yogi Jetsun Milarepa. These retreats involve an arduous, week-long journey by foot. Rinpoche made one extended retreat for more than three years and has since made four additional journeys there. He completed a 4-year solitary retreat in Lapchi.

 

Due to Rinpoche's altruistic mind of enlightenment, over thirty practitioners have gathered on "conduct" retreats under his guidance in that holy place. As a result of the late H.E. Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche's and H.E. Nubpa Rinpoche's loving kindness and compassion, the building of the Rinchen Ling Monastery in Nayapati, Nepal has also been inaugurated for the sake of all Dharma practitioners.

 

Rinpoche is well-versed and thoroughly realized on the teachings in Sutra text, Abhidharma and Mahamudra.  His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche has mentioned that H.E. Nubpa Rinpoche is the heart son the the late Mahasiddha, His Eminence Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche. The most Venerable Drubwang Rinpoche himself has also mentioned that His Eminence Nubpa Rinpoche is an authentic practitioner of the Buddha Dharma whom we can trust and seek advice on our Dharma practice.  Those who are most fortunate to have met and received teachings from Rinpoche would have experienced the trust, tranquility and geniune compassion that Rinpoche emitted from his activities and conduct.

H.E. Garchen Rinpoche recently communicated the following about Nubpa Rinpoche:

“He is one of the most special gurus in the Drikung Kagyu lineage and became the main successor of Drubwang Rinpoche after his passing. I met Nubpa Rinpoche for the first time in 1980 after I was released from prison. He then went to Jangchub Ling and served as a great scholar, and after that he completed many years of retreat in Lapchi where he mastered meditation practice. He is thus an accomplished master and also a great scholar of Buddhist scriptures. In terms of practice, he is the successor of Drubwang Rinpoche.

“We have tried to invite him to our center for many years, but only this year has it become possible for him to grant us a visit. It is thus extremely important that all Dharma friends come from all over to meet and learn from him and be able to practice with him.”

Like Drubwang Rinpoche, Nubpa Rinpoche is an extraordinary Chenrezig practitioner, and it is Nubpa Rinpoche who wrote the seven-line prayer for Garchen Rinpoche that is included in Rinpoche’s Guru Yoga sadhana, “Light Amassment of Blessings.”
