“The Buddha Dharma is the ultimate source of happiness and refuge for all beings. We should preserve it through practice and so preserve the precious lineage of living wisdom teachings. In order to do this, the monastic setting is indispensable. Such a sanctuary radiates positive energy and promotes peace, harmony, happiness and liberty throughout the entire universe.” – H.E. Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche

Dear Friends,
There exists very special Buddha Dharma teachings received directly from Guru Rinpoche Padma Sambhava that are hidden throughout the land of Tibet. These “Termas” are safeguarded in a way that prevents them from being found before the appropriate time. When conditions are ripe for their dissemination, the Termas are discovered by Treasure-Revealers.

His Eminence Namkha Drimed Rinpoche is one of the greatest Treasure Revealers (Tertons) of our time. And Ripa Ladrang Foundation with the support of all its
friends and family has undertaken the privileged task of translating these texts from Tibetan to English with the intention to preserve their meaning and transmission for all Dharma practitioners in future generations. The Foundation embarked on this project almost four years ago with the blessing of His Eminence for the benefit of all beings.

The effort to translate these texts, verify the translation and clarify any revisions with His Eminence when needed, is completed by the untiring efforts of Lama Tenzin, Gregory Bouchard and Mike Dickman. The annual budget for this project is $21,000. All money raised in this effort go directly toward compensation of these translators for their part time work that they dedicate to this project.

These “Termas” (“Gong Ter”) from His Eminence are vast and consist of 23 volumes of texts consisting mainly of the various aspects of the Gesar cycle of teachings as well as Guru Rinpoche, Vajrasattva and several others. His time and insights to revise and provide clarity to his vision brings a special authenticity to this work. Under his direction, His Eminence will guide us and establish the project priorities.

We want to take a moment and thank all supporters of Ripa Ladrang Foundation for your generous support through the past four years and provide you with an update as to our progress. We know that with your continued support this incredible work will continue until we complete all 23 volumes within a few years.

If you are able, please make a year-end contribution on our website to continue our work on a this profound undertaking, which will have a Karmic benefit for all beings for ages to come. How fortunate for everyone who participates in this Gongter translation project! You may pay by check, credit card or by wire. Thank you again for your support and generosity.

With Love and Gratitude,
The Ripa Ladrang Foundation
