We want to express joy and thankfulness for another wonderful Guru Rinpoche Bumtsok that was held this past weekend. This was a collaborative effort put together by Sakya Monastery, The Tibetan Association Of Washington , and Heruka Institute. It was so great to think about this being the 4th year in a row that we have come together to pray devotedly to Guru Rinpoche in this way. With so many natural disasters happening around the world, it was wished that this powerful practice is able to benefit all beings both near and far. We are so grateful to be able to practice Guru Rinpoche Bumtsok at the beautiful Sakya Monastery. Our Guru Rinpoche Thangka that we were able to purchase from generous donations looked glorious inside the Temple and helped people practice with great inspiration. The Tibetan community members worked tirelessly to prepare for this Retreat and provided everyone with delicious and nourishing food throughout our practice together. This truly couldn’t have been done without their devotion. We look forward to coming together again next year in this auspicious manner!

Heruka Institute and Tibetan Association of Washington continued their ongoing collaboration today as Rinpoche spoke with the local Tibetan children about his own life in Tibet. Rinpoche kindly and openly shared about what his life was like growing up; what it is like for little monks living in Tibetan Monasteries. The children were very interested and had wise and interesting questions to ask Rinpoche about this topic. Afterwards, Rinpoche led the children in a short Meditation practice. It was easy to see the benefit of this gathering, as the children were captivated by Rinpoche’s storytelling and eager to apply his instructions to practice.

[:en]Heruka Institute & TAW are continually working together to bring enrichment for traditional Tibetan children’s culture and for the flourishing of Buddhism. During the past 10 years, Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche has been voluntarily helping the local Tibetan kids by teaching language, meditation, sand mandala and many other related topics. He is now continuing this work by facilitating regular teachings during the children’s Sunday School. This past Sunday, April 9th, the topics covered by Rinpoche were Teaching Meditation and Sand Mandala.

The Sand Mandala has a 2,500-year history in Buddhist culture. The sand is from the nature- stones, wood, etc. Mostly the five colors are used in the sand. This describes the five elements- earth, water, fire, air and space. The Mandala represents ordinary people ‘s body, speech, and mind & the Buddha’s body, speech and mind- and the connection between the two. Also, the Mandala depicts the Buddha’s Pure Lands. Everybody has Buddha Nature, and then when they become Buddha, each person has their own Pure Land. Everyone can learn to build a Sand Mandala. After you finish building the Sand Mandala, you enjoy the beauty of it for a moment. Then, it is destroyed and thrown into the water. This represents impermanence. Sometimes we throw it into the air or fire, because it already represents the body with its five elements. Then it goes back into the five elements.

The children listened intently to the precious information given from Rinpoche. Then, everyone did a wonderful job of joining Rinpoche in creating a Sand Mandala. As you can see from the pictures, the children really gained insight and enjoyed making the beautiful Sand Mandala along with Rinpoche.[:]
