Who are we?

Why Khyenkong Tharjay Manjughosha for the name of an association?

Khyenkong comes from the contraction of Khyentse and Kongtrul, the name of the great contemporary masters of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism that are Beru Khyentse Rinpoche and Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche.

 

Khyentse, in Tibetan, means knowledge and love. Tharjay or Targyay means expansion, development and Manjughosha is one of the names of Manjushri, the Boddhisattva which represents the wisdom, intelligence and power of the mind.

 

The purpose of the association is, for the most part, to provide medical care to the Indian villagers living in the vicinity of Bodhgaya, place of the Awakening of Buddha Sakyamuni and the pilgrims, in order to allow the full development of health, the most precious of human beings.

 

Beru Khyentse Rinpoche, who, in his own words, serves as a “catalyst to help the poor, the sick and the uneducated”, is at the origin of the creation of the association.

 

The medical missions take place in winter, from the beginning of December to the end of February, with the local support of lama Topchen, the intendant of the Karma Temple who provided a building, for future use as a dispensary, with rooms for volunteers of the association.

 

The first medical missions took place from December 2019 to February 2020 and resumed in the villages, from December 2022 until the end of February 2023, in a concept of «nomadic medicine».

 

In addition, during the lockdown period with Covid, the association contributed to the distribution of food parcels, enriched with nutrients, in the villages around Bodhgaya because Bihar is the  poorest state in India.

 

We need your financial help to sustain these missions in the future!
