Sikkim is full of such miracles

Post by phantom59 » Wed Oct 21, 2009 7:58 am

Dudjom Rinpoche, a great lama of the Nyingma sect, also regarded as a
reincarnation of Guru Padmasambhava, was brought to the hospital. We
found that he had appendicitis and that an operation was needed to
remove his appendix. But he refused the operation. A devotee of
Rinpoche's asked me to convince him that the operation was necessary
to save him from the pain. I explained everything about appendicitis
to Rinpoche but he did not agree to the operation. Instead he asked me
to call another Rinpoche, Yangthang Rinpoche. Yangthang is a village
in West Sikkim. Dudjom Rinpoche's devotees rushed to find Yangthang
Rinpoche and upon his arrival Yangthang Rinpoche started doing some
type of puja. He chanted mantras moving his hand as if throwing
something on Dudjom Rinpoche's body. This process was repeated for
three days and Dudjom Rinpoche was healed. From the medical point of
view this is very hard to explain. Sikkim is full of such miracles." onclick=";return false;
