Guru Rinpoche is Coming!

Good afternoon my son,

By now you will have been settling nicely into our two bedroom apartment at PREM School, enjoying being in grade 3 and the freedom that having many of your friends around affords you, as always you are the my number one joy.

Recently we set up a new teak wood alter (Buddha shrine) in our home. This will be our third shrine as we already have two in the Pai homes. The unique thing about this shrine is the protective deities chosen: Guru Padmasambhava (the top seat is reserved for HH), Terton Pema Lingpa, Guatama the Buddha (a must), and Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy.

The beginning phases, the shrine has already been raised and the seven water offering bowls in place, just waiting for the main Guru Rinpoche deity.

A Dharma friend of mine is kind enough to be carrying the statue of Guru Rinpoche over in September, recently she took the statue to Bumthang and had it blessed by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, for which I am extremely grateful for. Here is the latest picture of the statue in Bhutan:

I know you will be very happy one day to take care of these deities and alters as they will someday all be yours!
