Conference Agenda

1 How to pass on those rare teachings that so far Geden Phacho Bhucho Preservation Centre (GPBPC) has been able to find. Which are not only with Lamas in India but also teachings that are left only with some Lamas from many different countries.

2 In order to speed up this work we also need good staff in the Dharamsala office therefore how are we going to find the right people in time.

3 What kind of people are we going to ask to go to those different countries, to receive these teachings.

4 At the moment The Geden Phacho Bhucho Preservation Centre has found some difficulty with insufficient funding so how could Gelugpa members help with this.

Professor Samdhong Rinpoche, Jangtse Choje Rinpoche and Sharpa Choje Rinpoche gave a wonderful speech then had common discussions. Everyone used the time so well and shared their opinions.

The result was some Lamas volunteered to help with finding the texts which we can't get in India. Some said they will support the teachings when the GPBPC organise them. Moreover, many Lamas said they will back up the work of the GPBPC in any directions. 

Ven. Geshe Beri Jikmey took a transcript of the whole discussion and meeting. Also we were able to manage a video cameraman, so now we have a new DVD on this conference. If you want to have copy of this, even the first one just write to us, we will send a copy to you but we will charge you only for the cost of making and posting it to you. Also you can watch the video on our website.

Soon after this conference Lelung Rinpoche invited some lamas and contributors for tea in the meeting hall above the new Loseling prayer hall. Not many of them turned up but we received substantial donations, which you can view on the income section on this website. In addition Lelung Rinpoche and his staff visited many of those Lamas and the result is the GPBPC have set up some more rare teachings by Lamas for the younger generations, as you can see under the forthcoming teachings on this website. 

Your support is also most welcome.
