Accumulation de Mantras de Tchenrézi


Pour faire suite aux difficultés de santé de Lama Teunsang dont nous vous avons parlé dans le Newsletter du 19 avril, nous avons demandé à Karmapa Thayé Dorjé qu’elle était la pratique que nous tous pouvions faire pour aider Lama Teunsang.

Sa Sainteté Karmapa répond : « c’est la pratique de Tchenrézi qu’il faut faire en ce moment ».

C’est pourquoi nous avons mis en place cette page dédiée au comptage des mantras “Om Mani Padmé Houng” (Mani) récités par ceux qui veulent participer à cette accumulation.
C’est un moyen de se fédérer tous autour du même mandala dans le but de se lier en particulier Lama Teunsang et plus largement venir en aide à tous ceux qui souffrent actuellement dans le monde.

Formulaire de contribution aux récitations de Manis depuis le 21 avril 2020

Ce formulaire très simple vous permet d’indiquer le nombre de tours de mala (rosaire) que vous avez effectué.
Attention: il s’agit des tours de Mala et non pas du nombre de mantras récités.
A partir du 21 avril 2020 !

Vigilance COVID at Montchardon

The programme now takes place under special circumstances, since the Centre may resume its activities provided that the health rules are strictly observed.

The conditions of participation imply strict compliance with the barrier measures, whether for practices or courses.

Here is how we will organize ourselves.
For places of worship such as Montchardon, the rules set by the State are as follows:

  • - upon arrival at the Centre, the trainee must not be ill or show symptoms of the virus.
  •  obligation to maintain a distance of 1m around oneself, in the temple, in the refectory and when moving around the Centre,
  • - mandatory wearing of a protective mask in :
    •   - the temple: permanently during the teachings and daily collective practices.
    •   - the refectory: from the entrance to the moment of sitting down and if you get up to get a drink or to go out.
    •   - all other situations: as soon as it is difficult to maintain distance from others,
  • - hand washing with hydro-alcoholic gel at the entrance and exit of the temple and refectory, every time you enter the self-service area and on all occasions when you have to touch a collective object.
  • - An identifiable member of the administration will be responsible for the entry and exit phases of the prayer area to ensure that the rules are respected.

If you are unable or unwilling to follow these guidelines, we ask that you do not come to the Centre while these rules are in effect. The same applies, of course, if you are ill or have symptoms of the virus.

About Lama Teunsang

It is essential to protect Lama Teunsang whose immunity is compromised, making him extremely vulnerable to infection, and the people at the centre are in daily contact with him for meals and care. This also means that it is not appropriate to return to Lama Teunsang's home to greet him. For the compelling reasons mentioned above, he currently only receives those who care for his health.

No offering of kata to Lama Teunsang
It is asked to stay away from him, at least 1m and not to offer him a kata.
This use, so much appreciated by all of us, is currently suspended during the Covid period, to preserve its still fragile health.

Individual interview with Lama Teunsang
We asked Lama Teunsang about personal interviews. He does not wish to resume them for the time being. We will inform you of their resumption when he tells us so.
However, it is possible to request an interview with one of the Lamas of Montchardon. See with the translator.

In brief

Access to the temple will be limited to 80 people to respect sanitary distances. For accommodation, the rooms with several people will become individual accommodation, except for couples or families. The number of dormitory places will be reduced to space between beds. We will thus be able to accommodate about 80 people. The campsite will be open, the installation of the tents will have to follow the same instructions. We will have disinfecting liquids in all the places where it is necessary.

We would like to remind you:

  • - on the one hand, failure to respect the rules could lead to the closure of the Centre and legal proceedings.
  • - on the other hand, we have a moral obligation to protect ourselves and others from a potentially dangerous disease, especially since we live in collective premises.

As Buddhist practitioners, the constraints of masks, social distances and frequent hand washing can be integrated into our practice, as a constant training for vigilance and support of attention in our daily actions. It is also a great opportunity to practice the awakening mind, the altruistic attitude: "I commit myself to make this effort, thinking more about the well-being and health of others than about my own inconvenience". These are the skillful means of Dharma called " integrating unpleasantness into the path ".

Accumulations of Mantras of Chenrezig

In response to Lama Teunsang's health difficulties we told you about in the April 19th Newsletter, we asked Karmapa Thaye Dorje what practice we could all do to help Lama Teunsang.
His Holiness the Karmapa replied:
"This is the practice of Chenrezig that we must do at this time."
This is why we have set up this page dedicated to the counting of the mantras "Om Mani Padme Hung" (Mani) recited by those who want to participate in this accumulation.
It is a way to federate everyone around the same mandala in order to link up in particular with Lama Teunsang and more widely to help all those who are currently suffering in the world.
