His Holiness Gyalwa Menri Trizin Arrives to the USA

Bon Shen Ling is very grateful for the honor of welcoming the visit of His Holiness Gyalwa Menri Trizin 33rd to New York this month.

Chongtul Rinpoche was given the opportunity by Yungdrung Monastic Centre in India to accompany His Holiness to the USA for follow-up medical care. Rinpoche flew from New York to Delhi, India on Oct. 31st and arrived at Menri Monastery on Nov. 2nd. On Nov. 6th, Rinpoche accompanied His Holiness along with personal medical assistant, Tsa Tsa Lama, to America. All three arrived safely together to Bon Shen Ling’s NY temple with a joyous and happy welcoming by sangha members.

His Holiness will stay in New York for approximately three months.

We ask for everyone to pray and keep strong intention in your heart for His Holiness’ good health.

Tog Den Won Po Chongtul Rinpoche is the second son of six children, was raised in India by his Tibetan parents, father Amdo Sherpa, Lakha Wangchuk and mother Kham Nang Chen, Norzin. Chongtul was given his childhood name of Namgyal Wangdhu by the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling. At the age of two, the Abbot of Yungdrung Ling explained to the Abbot of Menri Monastery, His Holiness Menri Trizin 33rd, that this boy was a reincarnated lama who was closely associated with both abbots during a previous lifetime, and would be very important in the preservation of Bon transmissions.
