Welcoming Address To Kyabje Choden Rinpoche By CGC's President, Dr. Daniel Yeoh On 22nd December 2009

Earlier this year, I went to Borobudur for pilgrimage with Kyabje Choden Rinpoche, and with the great advice of anila Osel, I made request to invite Rinpoche to come to teach at Chokyi Gyaltsen Center. Rinpoche with so much compassion accepted my request, and Rinpoche, all of us at CGC are extremely happy that Rinpoche is here today to teach us.

Over the next 7 days, we request Rinpoche dispel the darkness that has been clouding our mind, and we request Rinpoche to ripen our mind stream so that we could quickly achieve many realisations. We request Rinpoche to ripen our mind so that we are ready to practise highest yoga tantra very soon.

Many of us here serve dharma and work very hard for dharma according to the holy wishes Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche. We also request Rinpoche to dispel all our obstacles, secret and outer obstacles, so that we have perfect conditions to serve dharma and practise dharma, and have a lot of realisations.

Rinpoche you mentioned in your teaching recently that if a qualified student relies on a qualified master, inner realisation is as easy as "ABC".

We have no doubt that Rinpoche is a perfectly qualified spiritual master, and on our side we will try to be a qualified student; we will try to have our mind freed from biased, 2) we will try to develop some wisdom discriminate between right and wrong 3) and we will strive hard to develop strong aspiration to achieve inner realisation.

Rinpoche, your holy presence here is so rare and so precious, and I hope all of us here at CGC will sincerely aspire to be your qualified students and seek to practise dharma and make our dharma practice as offerings to Rinpoche.

Once again, thank you so much Rinpoche for coming to CGC.
