Kyabje Gyangkhang Khentrul Rinpoche to Consecrate Two Temples in Nepal

Khenpo Pem Tsheri Sherpa, who is the resident Khenpo at KPC in Maryland, has also been hard at work building a new temple in his village in Nepal. The old one was destroyed by an earthquake a few years ago. That temple became two temples to accommodate the difficulty in traveling from one part of the village to another in this mountainous region. Both are almost complete and this month, Kyabje Gyangkhang Rinpoche has come to consecrate the two temples. This is a huge blessing for this region in Nepal and for all beings. Enjoy the videos of the two temples and the invitation video for the event.

As Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo Rinpoche’s dedication prayer says,

“By this effort, may all sentient beings be free of suffering.

May their minds be filled with the nectar of virtue.

In this way, may all causes resulting in suffering be extinguished,

And only the light of compassion shine throughout all realms.”
