Offering and connection to Dordje Chang Bokar Rimpoche
After years of difficulty on this perilous road of vajrayana, the couple of Mérite & Patience were inspired by the simplicity, the goodness and the realisation of Bokar Rimpoche to follow their practice.
He appeared to us as a rare light in a dark period, as a beneficent breeze of interior peace in an epoque of conflicts.
Under the counsel of Lama Namgyal, we wrote a letter in which we presented ourselves and asked him for refuge. We also prayed to him to bless the project of our workshops, as well as our activity in general.
We accompanied this letter with a statue of offering in gold (124 grams), which represents a tigle, the "small a" of Milarepa, from where the ardent flame of unconditional devotion shoots up.
This was the first piece produced by Mérite & Patience. It was realised as a result of a breath of inspiration from Lama Thargyel during a transmission.
It was Lama Thargyel who took this offering to Bokar Rimpoche, when he led the future retreat candidates to receive the initiations by the holder of the lineage, one month before his parinirvana.
This gold made up part of the gold traditionally offered at the time of the request for the initiations, so we thus established a connection with this retreat which will end in 2007.
Rimpoche read our letter, accepted our offering and placed it, to our great joy, on his personal altar. It should still be there in Mirik.
May our activity, from beginning to end, carry his blessings
We thank the Lamas Namgyal and Thargyel for having had the patience to help us establish this connection.
A copy of this statue in bronze can be seen in the "Offerings" section of our Products page under the name "Tigle Offering".
