FPMT News Around the World
Do Ngak Sung Juk Centre in Tokyo wrote to Mandala about their second group nyung nä, held in September 2012. “Our group of 11 multilingual participants completed the nyung nä in four languages (Japanese, English, Tibetan and Chinese) while under the superb leadership of Ven. Dechen from Taiwan. We practiced in a very conducive environment at Mt. Mitake, a hill within a vast national park with a mountain shrine that has existed for almost 2,000 years. Under Ven. Dechen’s guidance, we transformed a traditional Japanese inn’s tatami room that usually caters to pilgrims and visitors into a beautiful gompa. For seven members, it was their first nyung nä, but won’t be their last,” wrote Doc O’Connor, Do Ngak Sung Juk’s director.
“I was nervous at first but due to being in a group of determined people and a leader who carefully looked after each one of us, I completed and want to do again,” one participant shared. “The location was a power spot – excellent environment!” said another.
“Do Ngak Sung Juk is forever grateful to Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche for creating and nurturing this wonderful organization,” O’Connor wrote. “As a smaller sized center, we feel so much support from International Office and other centers. We’re very appreciative of everyone’s help.”
Mandala is also appreciative of all the help we receive from FPMT centers around the world, who, like Do Ngak Sung Juk, so kindly allow us to share their news.
With more than 160 centers, projects and services around the globe, there is always news on FPMT activities, teachers and events. Mandala hopes to share as many of these timely stories as possible. If you have news you would like to share, please let us know.
