History of the Nyingmapa Tradition

Around 760, Trisong Detsen invited Padmasambhava and the Nalanda abbot Santarraksita to Tibet to introduce Buddhism to the “Land of Snows.” Trison Detsen ordered the translation of all Buddhist texts into Tibetan. Padmasambhava, Santaraksita, 108 translators, and 25 of Padmasambhava’s nearest disciples worked for many years in a gigantic translation-project. The translations from this period formed the base for the large scriptural transmission of Dharma teaching into Tibet. Santaraksita concentrated on the sutras. Padmasanbhava and Santaraksita also founded the first Buddhist Monastery in Tibet, Samaye.” “From the eleventh century onwards, the Nyingma (old) tradition flourished along with the newer Sarma School, and it was at that time that Nyingmapas began to see themselves as a distinct group and the term “Nyingma” came into usage.”

Earthquake Relief

A devastating 7.8 earthquake hit Nepal on 25 April 2015 followed by many huge aftershocks, including a major 7.3 quake on May 12. The earthquakes caused extensive damage to about 1300 Buddhist Monasteries, Stupas, Monks School, colleges, and prayer-inscribed stones in Nepal’s Himalayan regions. Respected senior Buddhist Rinpoches, Dharma Gurus, Teachers, Nuns, Monks, and their followers volunteered extensively in rescue and relief efforts, free distribution of tents, food, medicine and other activities. The Nepal Buddhist Nyingma Association has distributed Rs: 25,000/- each for fully damaged monasteries and Rs:15,000/- each for partially damaged monasteries to a total of 350 monasteries of Sindhupalchok, Solukhumbu, Dhading, Gorkha, Ramechhap, Kavrepalanchok, Dolakha, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Pokhara, and Okhaldunga, Districts of Nepal. Relief support funds of Rs: 2,500,000/- were received through Ven.Khenpo Sange Rangjung Rinpoche, (President of the Nepal Buddhist Nyingma Association) and the rest of the money was spent from the Nepal Buddhist Nyingma Association’s own funds.
