WELCOME TO NYIMA TASHI BUDDHIST CENTRE AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND

Nyima Tashi encompasses a refreshing and diverse approach to Buddhism for the twenty-first century, through the development of 3 objectives:

Firstly: To promote and foster interfaith/interdisciplinary awareness of the wide spectrum of Buddhist views and methods, as seen from the perspective of Tibetan, Mahayana, Zen, Theravada, and so forth; to foster dialogue through inviting individual and collective discourses of qualified teachers from all respective traditions, and instituting conferences, courses, and opportunities for ongoing discussion.

Secondly: To help promote genuine understanding of the benefits of Buddhist philosophy and practice in modern life, through the integration of an eclectic range of western research and commentary on such topics as psychology, philosophy, medicine, and other arts and sciences.

Thirdly: To advance and preserve the philosophy and practices of both Kagyu and Nyingma lineages; two of the oldest schools of Tibetan Buddhism, with a particular care given to the unfolding of the Kagyu tradition.

In order to bring about these objectives Nyima Tashi will move into a similar format to that of E-Vam Buddhist Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Due to the proximity of the two countries we may see more of this movement from overseas, as teachers that visit K.E.B.I. make the journey to Auckland.

TRALEG YANGSE RINPOCHE

On 5 March 2015 the Very Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche received a letter composed by His Holiness 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje indicating that the 10th Traleg Rinpoche had been born in the Batong area in 2013 (the year of the Snake).

Thrangu Monastery, Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery, Maitripa Centre, E-Vam Institute Melbourne, E-Vam Institute USA, Nyima Tashi Kagyu Buddhist Centre and Nyima Centre Sydney commenced prayers that Traleg Rinpoche be located swiftly.

On 13 July 2015, Lodro Nyima Rinpoche and Drupon Rinchen Tseling-la led the chief committee members of Thrangu Monastery Tibet to Zama Village in Batong where they found Traleg Yangse Rinpoche's family waiting outside their home.

Mandala offerings were made to Traleg Yangse Rinpoche and katas were offered to Rinpoche's father, Tashi, his mother, Pema, and to Rinpoche's grandmother.

Lodro Nyima Rinpoche then read His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa's recognition letter to the many disciples who had gathered for the special occasion.

Today Traleg Yangsi Rinpoche was officially recognized by Thrangu Monastery Tibet.

Very Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche recommends students continue to recite swift return prayers for Traleg Rinpoche until his enthronement, so please pray for Traleg Yangse Rinpoche!

Dear Friends and Members of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s Centres,

It is with deep regret that we inform the Karma Kagyu tradition, the Nyingma tradition and all other schools of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the wider Buddhist community that our treasured and beloved Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche passed into parinirvana at 12.10 am on 24th July 2012, being the Fourth Day of the Sixth Month of the Tibetan calendar in the Year of the Dragon.

Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was devoted to maintaining the Essence and purity of Buddhism. Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche was not only a remarkable and outstanding scholar of the teachings of Buddhism but his ability to communicate the teachings ensured that the essence of the teachings penetrated the hearts and minds of thousands of students of the Dharma throughout the world. We deeply and earnestly pray for the quick rebirth of Traleg Rinpoche.

We feel blessed beyond belief to be a part of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s activities throughout the West.

WHAT IS HAPPENING AT NYIMA TASHI

Compassion in a Digital Age with Dungse Jampal Norbu

Saturday, 29 April, 10am - 12:30pm Saturday, 29 April, 2:30pm -4:00pm Sunday, 30 April, 10am - 12:30pm

Price: $25    Address: 30b Pollen Street, Ponsonby, Auckland

The digital age has given us more ways to connect, but can leave us feeling isolated. Social media is a platform for communication, but can devolve into digital shouting.

Compassion isn’t the first word which comes to mind when we talk about the digital age, but it is as crucial as it has ever been. Compassion is the difference between cyber bullying and social support. It is the inspiration for new technologies which help the world where help is needed most, beyond simple entertainment.

Compassion has been the difference between sending rockets to the moon or shooting rockets at each other. In a time where our connection with the joys and sorrows of world is highlighted no matter where we are, compassion is essential to guide the digital age towards a positive future.

ABOUT DUNGSE-LA Dungse Jampal Norbu was born in 1988 to Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, a Tibetan Buddhist meditation master, and his wife, Elizabeth Mattis- Namgyel. Dungse-la trained from a young age under his father’s tutelage, recently completing a five year course in Tibetan philosophy. Dungse-la sees Buddhism as a practical set of skills that enhance our ability to live in a full and compassionate way. His humor, insight, and familiarity with the Western world allow him to pinpoint the relevance of the Buddhist teachings to the range of modern life’s concerns.
