Hello from North NJ!

I'm Richie, hi everyone :)

I took refuge with H.H. Dungse Shenphen Dawa Rinpoche back in March of last year and have recently started practicing Ngöndro again. I believe I was extremely fortunate in being able to make it out to 49th day of pujas for Rinpoche. Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa Rinpoche presiding over the pujas was particularly auspicious; It was my first time meeting him then. Going has really motivated me to practice with devotion to my root teacher.

At the end of the pujas, we were given cloth and salt relics from Rinpoche. I forgot to ask what to do with this as I was caught up taking everything in. Does anyone by any chance know how to best use these relics in my practice? I just thought it might be a good idea to ask the OCD sangha, but I don't think it'll hurt to ask here :P

I look forward to making friends here and understanding everything I can!

Hi! And, Welcome!
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

I think each human being has things to find out in his own life that are inescapable. They’ll find them out the easy way or the hard way, or whatever.
