Introduction to Lama Ahbay Tulku Jigme Thupten Tendar Rinpoche:
Ahbay Rinpoche is a recognized High Lama and re-incarnate in the lineage of the Dalai Lama. He is considered to be 3rd in line to the Dalai Lama Himself. When Rinpoche was nine years old he was fully initiated into monkhood and the tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. When he was twelve, His Holiness the Dalai Lama identified him as the reincarnation of the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin.
Rinpoche has been commissioned by the Dalai Lama to spread compassion and peace throughout the world. He travels the globe teaching, giving blessings and spreading love, gratitude, understanding and mindfulness. Rinpoche embodies loving kindness. He is incredibly warm, friendly and radiant, filled with joy, laughter, exuberance and great character. His smile alone will melt your heart! Rinpoche performs special blessings and pujas, or prayer rituals, for individuals and/or families, as part of his service and commitment to cultivate compassion and happiness.
On a practical exchange level, part of his responsibility is to educate, feed, house and support young monks in his care in India, as well as operate a health clinic serving his local community. Donations (even very small by our standards) are how we appreciate his offering in return. He is very good at staying in regular communication with people who sponsor young monks on a monthly basis, or contribute to the project of rebuilding his Monastery.
From Ahbay Rinpoche: “I will give teachings and blessings, I will be very happy to help people in the world and especially people from USA. I will continue to give teachings and blessing as much as I can help and pray for you all for more peaceful life, healthy life, successful life.”
