The tsa-tsas for the ku-dung stupas (and for our donor thank you gifts) will be made in the shape of a stupa. The plaster will be mixed with water from the sacred stream that Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche opened in Bhutan.
“This Chu-ter (healing water) began to flow when blessed by Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche’s practice. This area on the mountainside near Rangiyung had a water problem for many years. When Kyabje Dungse Rinpoche did puja there, the water began to flow again. Now this is a place where people come from far away and stay to camp and partake of the healing water. From showering in and drinking this water they become healed of many illnesses.
The tsa-tsas will contain dudtsi (sacred medicine) from a vast array of incredible sources, including HH Dudjom Rinpoche, whose dudtsi is like “starter yeast” for the dudtsi of all present day Nyingma lamas. HH Dudjom Rinpoche collected dudtsi that was from many great treasure revealers and realized lamas, including Guru Rinpoche, King Shantarakshita, Rangzom Mahapandita, Lochen Dharma Shiri, Longchenpa, Jigme Lingpa,Sangye Lingpa, Dorje Lingpa, Ratna Lingpa, Pema Lingpa, Karma Lingpa, Dudul Dorje and Dudjom Lingpa to name some. This collection of dudtsi that HH Dudjom Rinpoche put together is called Ten Gum, the “relics box collection”.
HH Dudjom Rinpoche’s dudtsi also contains nectar that Rinpoche manifested at Maratika Rock Cave. He held up his kapala under the dry rock and nectar appeared and overflowed his kapala. Also in his dudtsi; when HH Dudjom Rinpoche did long life practice at Guru Rinpoche’s holy place Deva Kota in Pema Ko, his kapala with alcohol started boiling and overflowing and this substance.
In addition to this incredible collection there will be dudtsi from other realized lamas, all of which have HH Dudjom Rinpoche’s Ten Gum dudtsi as its base. These include Chatral Rinpoche, Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Lama Sherab Rinpoche, Penor Rinpoche, Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Mindroling Trichen Rinpoche, Namkha Drimed Rinpoche, Tsetrul Rinpoche, Taklung Rinpoche, Dzungma Rinpoche and Chakmed Rinpoche.
The tsa-tsas will also contain other sacred substances including a relic from Longchenpa’s brain; HH Dudjom Rinpoche’s special Manjushri pill and blessing pills from the 16th Karmapa, to name a few .
The sacred contents of this dudtsi that will be in the stupa tsa-tsas (as well as in our thank you gifts for donors) are “vast and miraculous and their power is unquestionable” ” according to Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.
