My friend Lama Ahbay Tulku Jiigme Thupten Tendar Rinpoche returned to Glastonbury today to give some first rate Tibetan Buddhist teachings at the Healing Waters Retreat Centre here in town just up the road from here on a very damp chilly Winter’s day. I met him last year on the 17th. March, 2017 for the first time and we have stayed in touch since, having connected at a very deep level at the time Spiritually and Vibrationally, both walking in the very ancient Nazarean Essene Tradition of CHRIST in the modern day in our own lands. Almost all World religions have their source in the Essene Way and our sacred ancient teachings can be found within their sacred books and scrolls when you study them in depth. Both of us walking seriously in our Spiritual Paths Teaching the Eternal Paths of Peace to all Humanity, regardless of colour, creed or nation, for all of us are ONE.
Lama Ahbay Tulku Jiigme Thupten Tendar Rinpoche was born in Darjeeling, India in 1973. When he was nine years old he was fully initiated into Monkhood and the tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Khabche Ling Rinpoche gave him the name Thupten Tendar. When he was twelve, His Holiness the Dalai Lama identified him as the reincarnation of the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin, who lived in a cave and was famous for his supernatural powers. One year later he was enthroned as Tulku in Gaden Jangtse Monastery.
As the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin, the animals of the forest, deer and monkeys would come to him and people from all walks of life would seek him out for blessing. Lama Lobsang Tenzin was the founder of the Yega Choling Monastery in Tibet. At present Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche has full responsibility of Yega Choling Monastery and all of its Monks.
Ahbay Rinpoche had come straight to England to begin his U.K. teaching tour and share some of his life’s journey and Buddhist Path this afternoon and evening. On the 5th. January, 2018, he was given personal one to one teaching by His Holiness the 83 year old Dalai Lama to share with the world and those of his Monastery.
His Tibetan Buddhist teachings were totally captivating, deeply profound, very healing, and delivered in great happiness and fun by him to the large group gathered in the yurt. One teaching he gave was about two people standing in the Ocean. One was in great difficulty and struggling in the water. The other was absolutely fine, enjoying the sensation and teachings that it was bringing. He then looked at us and asked us how one person would attempt to help and rescue the other in difficulty? He replied, “By getting out of the water yourself safely onto the Shore. You help them by loving yourself first. When you are standing on the Shore and you have found the Power of Divine Love to Heal yourself, you then have acquired the Divine Wisdom and Power to help the person struggling in difficulties in the Waters of Life to save themself.” As LORD YESHUA commanded to St. Luke HIS Doctor and Disciple 2,000 years ago, “Physician Heal Thyself.” (The Gospel According to St. Luke 4: 23.) Only then could He then Heal His patients properly coming to Him with medical difficulties that were going under still swimming or drowning in the Currents of Life.
In the photograph here with him, I am wearing a Tibetan good luck scarf that he placed around my neck during the evening.
Peace be with you.
