HH the Ganden Tri Rinpoche and Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso of Palyul Nyingma of Namdroling - the Rinpoches met for a fabulous lunch and meeting. Khenchen Rinpoche is our society's spiritual adviser of many years. I remarked that it is "funny" that although our society's advisers are mostly Nyingma, our society is mostly involved, at least until the present time, with the Gelugpa Tradtion and their projects. His Holiness replied that there is nothing "funny" as irregardless of whether we are Nyingma and Gelug, we are ultimately working to realise HH the Dalai Lama's wish of happiness for all beings !!

Our society's Advisors and Teachers

Kalsang Rinpoche - a "tulku" or recognized reincarnated master of the Palyul Nyingma Tradition. Rinpoche is the resident Teacher and official representative of HH Penor Rinpoche in Singapore. Rinpoche is also one of the closest disciples of HH Penor Rinpoche. Rinpoche is the personal adviser of most of our society's members. A master of unbelievable power that SAVES impossibly sticky situations. I personally owe my little life to Rinpoche. Most projects owe their unexpected great success to Rinpoche's power. Not only that, when you see Him, you see Compassion. [ Date taken - unknown and timeless !! ]

Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso - one of the most senior Teachers in the Palyul Nyingma Tradition. A treasury of blessings, wisdom and love. A humorous, happy and friendly Teacher. We've known Rinpoche for more than 10 years and has been guided by Rinpoche ever since. Rinpoche's main Teachers include HH Penor Rinpoche, HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and HH Dudjom Rinpoche. Most of the younger generation of monks of Namdroling Monastery are Rinpoche's students. Picture is taken in a public housing estate, Singapore. [ Date taken - unknown ]

Gyudmed Khensur Geshe Dorje Tashi Rinpoche - the Root Guru of almost everyone in our society or almost everyone associated with our society. A veritable Lord of Dharma………unshakable, unspeakable awe, eternal patience, love, kindness and compassion in its purest. Rinpoche, as the former Abbot of the Tantric College of Lower Lhasa, is in line to be the Ganden Tripa, the Official Head of the Gelugpa Tradition. With His impeccable discipline, boundless kindness and care, Rinpoche instils the highest respect from all His students.

One of our happiest events !! Acting under advice from the senior lineage masters, we are temporarily halting our organization of Lama Ole's programme until the Karmapa issue blows over.
