Wisdom from Our Teachers

Having Confidence

Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche

On May 4, 2009 IMI held a meeting at Nalanda Monastery with over 75 monks and nuns in attendance.  Lama Zopa Rinpoche offered a few words at the conclusion of the meeting.  Rinpoche shared some advice to the Sangha on our example and continued with the example of the Theravadin monks.  We share this excerpt with you.

How do you feel when you look at Theravadin monks, not the younger ones, but the elder ones? Generally, when you see Theravadin monks, you get a very positive feeling that they know that what they are doing is the best thing. They are full of confidence, 100% confident, that they can achieve liberation. Somehow there is no question, no uncertainty; they are 100% sure that this is the best thing to do with one’s life. When you see those elder monks, they know what they are doing is the best and they are full of confidence. If you are like that, you will inspire other people by giving them a very positive feeling.

Of course, they haven’t met the Mahayana teachings or tantra, they can follow the path to liberation, but they are full of confidence. We are supposed to be even greater than that. How fortunate we are! You have to understand psychologically that life should be happy as sangha; but happiness arising from thinking about the benefits, the deep benefits like oceans, for yourself and the numberless others from each realm that you will liberate. Where the lineage of the vows, whether gelong, getsül, or getsulma, is present, helps the people in that country to attain a precious human rebirth. There are unbelievable benefits to the country as well as to the devas and nagas.  Even the sound from the gong that is struck before sojong, benefits the teachings of the Buddha, it benefits the world. The benefits of the sound of the gong are mentioned even in the sutras. In Sera I saw that as soon as they struck the gong, rain fell. Ordination brings so much peace and benefit to the devas and nagas that the rain coming was a sign of their happiness.

Think of the benefits as it brings a lot of courage and you need a lot of courage. Thank you so much.

2009 International Sangha Prayers for World Peace

Sakadawa June 7 to Wheel Turning Day July 25, 2009

The community of monks and nuns of IMI are offering recitations and prayers for World Peace. Our spiritual leader, Lama Zopa Rinpoche has specifically recommended the recitation of the “Sutra of Golden Light” to help all of us develop the qualities of loving kindness and compassion in the face of these increasingly difficult and violent times.

We are joining together to recite the "Sutra of Golden Light" as part of International Sangha Day on July 25th, 2009. We are requesting you to participate and benefit from Lama Zopa Riponche’s advice:

  • Participate in the recitation of the Sutra of Golden Light. Make your pledge online to recite from Sakadawa, June 7 celebrating Buddha’s enlightenment to International Sangha Day, or Wheel Turning Day celebrating Buddha’s first teaching on July 25th.

Visit to find all the information you need to join in International Sangha Day Prayers for World Peace and the recitation of the “Sutra of Golden Light.

Monastic Training 2009

Ordination with Khensur Rinpoche Jampa Tegchok

Sister Jotika and Ani Rita will lead a two week monastic training course for those who have been recently ordained (within the last five years) or for those who meet the Guidelines for Ordination and are planning on taking novice (or rabjung) ordination with Khensur Rinpoche Jampa Tegchok during the monastic training program.

Light of the Path Teaching Retreat with Lama Zopa Rinpoche

September 8-22, 2009
Black Mountain, North Carolina (USA)

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has offered to give a commentary to Lama Atisha’s Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment, over the course of the next 5 years to be hosted by Kadampa Center, in North Carolina (USA). The first teaching event is scheduled for September 8-22, 2009.

Light of the Path will be an annual teaching/retreat event with Rinpoche for the coming years. The event will be webcast for those who cannot attend in person and an online program based on the teachings will be available starting in 2010. As an experiential lamrim retreat, FPMT envisions both the event and the online program that follows becoming the fundamental basis for all other study and practice.

Kadampa Center is hosting the retreat at a rental facility and does not charge money for Dharma, so the registration cost for attending the retreat covers only the cost of the facility rental. They are relying solely on donations to fund all other aspects of this event. They are unable to offer discounts for Sangha.

Education Services at FPMT International Office considers this retreat to be an extremely important event for sangha and teachers to attend as it will be an FPMT lineage transmission from Rinpoche on the pith of practice: how to meditate on the lam-rim. Sangha and teachers are strongly encouraged to attend this important event. Only those who have attended in person will be approved to facilitate this course for others in the future. Finances are very tight and for this reason neither IMI, International Office, or Kadampa Center are able to offer scholarships to attend.

For further information on the Light of the Path program, please visit FPMT Education Services.

Rains Retreat at Nalanda Monastery

August 5 to September 18, 2009
Nalanda Monastery, France

Nalanda Monastery will be hosting their annual rains retreat this year from August 5 to September 18. The rains retreat originates from the time of the Buddha preventing bhikkus (Buddhist monks) from travelling during the rainy season of India (to protect the many beings that come alive during the rains). Typically it is a three-month period during which monks stay in the monastery to concentrate on the teachings of the Buddha; although in some traditions, the length is shorter based on the lunar calendar. Commonly, seniority based on the number of years a monk has spent in monastic life is expressed by counting the number of Rains Retreats one has observed (not the number of years ordained)!

The Nalanda community has extended an invitation for monks to spend a rains retreat at Nalanda Monastery (August 5 to September 18, 2009). Apart from the Basic Programme underway at Nalanda, there is no special program of activity during the rains retreat. For further information, please contact Nalanda Monastery.

IMI Moments In Time

  1982 After the first Enlightened Experience Celebration many of the Western Sangha came to France and Nalanda was established for the monks and Dorje Pamo was established for the nuns. In the past there were been between 10 and 20 monks living at Nalanda, and some who are now teaching all over the world.  Geshe Jampa Tegchog of Sera-Je was the Abbot of Nalanda.

IMI Sangha Meeting at Nalanda

Building Community

On Monday, 4 May 2009, Nalanda Monastery hosted a meeting of over 75 monks and nuns of IMI from around the world. They gathered to learn more about and engage in discussions on the development of IMI community.

The results identified the community’s desire to build a closely connected, supportive worldwide body that meets the challenges of our aging and dispersed population.

Focused group dialogue was used to explore aspects of growing older, community relations at centers, and community engagement between members. Participants were also organized into smaller groups to begin the discussion on the core issues.

Some Thoughts  Shared

Focused group dialogue was used to explore aspects of growing older, community relations at centers, and community engagement between members. Participants were also organized into paired discussion to unlock the core issues.

This was a precious opportunity to come together and look at how IMI programs and services can meet the needs of our changing community. IMI is now finalizing the results to inform the delivery of the Development Plan priorities.

Thank you to our monastic group moderators; Ven. Thubten Chokyi, Ven. Lobsang Chokyi, Ven Lobsang Tonden, Ven. Paloma, Ven Losang Gendun and Ven. Tenzin Yonten. And a special thank you to Nalanda Monastery who provided a wonderful meal and hospitable setting for the meeting.

2009 First Quarter Financial Results

Financial reporting for the first quarter indicates that IMI is not immune from the pressures of other organizations dependent on the kindness of others during these difficult economic times. This is even more marked for IMI as we begin to provide much-needed programs and support to the community. Our donations of $11,775 fell short of our expenditures of $38,692 for a total loss (expenditures-in-excess of contributions) for the first quarter of $26,917.

The majority of program expenditures are designated for the Lama Yeshe Sangha Fund Grant Program with 29 grants already awarded in 2009. Additional funding for administrative infrastructure, monastic training, spiritual guide retreats, communications and educational resources have been designated in the 2009 IMI Plan. Through effective communications and development, as well as monitoring of financial activity, IMI anticipates improved performance in the coming quarters.

If you have any question about the IMI financial information presented or the 2009 IMI Approved Budget, please feel free to contact us. Ven. Char Fanning serves as Treasurer of International Mahayana Insitute, Inc.

News from the Communities

Casa Rosa Nuns Residence at Pomaia

During his recent visit to Pomaia, Italy, the Director of IMI, Brother Monlam was invited to visit the Nuns residence at Pomaia. Over the last year, several nuns attending the Masters Program at Istituto Lama Tzong Khapa gathered together to live as a community. Located not far from the Institute, the residence provides accommodation and a shared kitchen. Ven. Tenzin Palmo has expressed enthusiasm for the beginnings of a nuns community; perhaps the predecessor of the future nunnery designated nearby.

Update from Associazione Sangha Onlus

The project the monks and nuns of Sangha Onlus to build a monastic community in Pomaia, Italy will certainly became an important international reference for the monastic community in the West and in the East.

This project was the pure vision of our beloved Teacher and abbot, Venerable Geshe Jampa Gyatso, as well as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who, granting us his trust without reservation, gave a name to the monastery even before laying down the first foundation stone. The monastery and nunnery of Pomaia will be called Lhungtok Chökorling (the Place where the Dharma is Taught and Realised).

Lama Zopa Rinpoche, notwithstanding His extraordinary commitments, continues to guide the project. He Himself reminded us many years ago that Lama Yeshe along with Geshe Jampa Gyatso foresaw the future need to create a suitable environment for study, meditation and lifestyle based on the Vinaya. Pomaia and the surrounding area now accommodates over 40 monks and nuns for the Masters Program, and it is difficult to create suitable conditions for the Sangha with only the fundamental presence and generosity of Lama Tzong Khapa Institute.

After having accomplished the great step of the acquisition of more than 30 hectares (75 acres) of natural hillside only 2km from Pomaia including 7 hectares of quarry where the project will be constructed, we are proceeding with planning, aware that all of our actions will affect those who will come after us.

With the help of the Tuscan Region, architects, and environmental engineers we are working on the following program. Initially the first part of the project is environmental recovery of the site, determining the eco-sustainability of the project while respecting the ecology, and including energy saving designs, materials and renewable energy production in the construction. In addition to the design of the actual buildings the landscape will also require redesign as we are attempting to recover a disused quarry using the functionality of the existing area to produce a monastery and nunnery similar to the Tibetan ones that allows us to insert the traditional architectural features of the Tibetan monasteries.

Mani Retreat at Institut Vajra Yogini, France

Over 70 monks and nuns from around the world joined Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the Mani Retreat still underway at Institut Vajra Yogini in France. Beginning on May 5, the retreat began with teachings and the 1,000 Arm Chenrezig Initiation from Lama Zopa Rinpoche. IMI joined with Institut Vajra Yogini in sponsoring the monastic community for this practice retreat.

We rejoice in this wonderful event and thank everyone who has been so kind as to help support the nuns and monks.

With Deep Appreciation

2008 Supporters of the Lama Yeshe Sangha Fund

The programs and activities of IMI are dependent on the kindness and generosity of our sponsors. We would like to extend a deep appreciation to all of the FPMT Centers, sangha members and individual donors who offered support in 2008. Among some of the highlights in 2008, your support has enabled IMI to support 21 monks and nuns through the Lama Yeshe Sangha Fund Grant Program; to offer monastic training; and to offer the opportunity to IMI monks and nuns to participate in the retreat with Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

We rejoice and dedicate all this positive energy for the benefit of the dharma for all sentient beings.
