A Letter from Rinpoche following the Opening and Consecration of Opak Kyilkhor Choeling and the Enthronement of H.E. Palchen Galo Rinpoche

I just returned after a wonderful retreat at the Holy Place of Achi Choekyi Dolma called Ati Tse in Ladakh and have dedicated my practice to all sentient beings and special prayers for your well being and for the success of your dharma practices.

I would like to send my appreciation and thanks to all who attended the recent opening of the Amitabha Foundation Retreat Centre in Nepal, and the enthronement of HE Palchen Galo Rinpoche.

Due to the last-minute approval of the visit by HH Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang Rinpoche, and the fact that the project itself was not fully completed in time for the event except for the temple which was our focus, everyone involved in this project had to accomplish many things very quickly at the last minute. With so much needing to be achieved so fast, we wish to express our apologies for any inconvenience that our guests experienced. We know that in some cases arrangements for your stay, including food and transportation, were not to the high standard that we had wished for.

Nevertheless, the ceremony itself proceeded in a very auspicious way, in an atmosphere of harmony and joy. I pray that now the temple and retreat centre will be a great blessing, produce great realized practitioners and be serving people from around the world.

Once again, I thank you all very much for your continued and unconditional support in helping to preserve the precious Buddha Dharma for many future generations to come. May the accumulation of merit from all our virtuous deeds benefit all sentient beings.

Yours in the Dharma,

His Eminence Choeje Ayang Rinpoche
