Treasure Vases

Upon hearing about the Benchen nunnery project, His Eminence Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche who has a close and long lasting heart connection with Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche expressed his wish to offer his contribution. After Losar 2014 Chokling Rinpoche produced special Norlha prosperity vases in his monastery Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling in Boudanath, Kathmandu. He filled these vases with precious substances and blessed them in the course of pujas performed for this particular purpose. The vases were manufactured according to a terma by Guru Padmasambava which were revealed by the first Chokling Rinpoche, the great Terton Chokgyur Lingpa who is also called „the King of Treasure Revealers“. The vases are meant to bring about prosperity, success and favorable conditions for dharma practitioners, and to harmonize the elements at any environment where they are placed.


Rinpoche personally handed over the vases as gifts for especially generous sponsors who have spent more than 5.000 Euros for the nunnery construction. This took place in Cologne on 12 September 2014 in the course of a prosperity puja that Chokling Rinpoche will preside and which will be performed exclusively for supporters of the nunnery project. For this purpose, Rinpoche produced a total of 20 vases, 12 of which are currently still available. The corresponding funds made it possible to meet the final completion of the building in Pharping and will in the future be used to suuport the nuns in their practice.

We cordially thank all supporters and are looking forward to greet more of you in a future! All the best – and see you soon!


Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche generously accepted the invitation of Dharma Haus Benchen Tashi Ling and gave three programms in Cologne, in 2012, 2013, and 2014. See the details at www.chokling.org.
