Being with a Guru is a deep and heartfelt connection that spans over lifetimes up until enlightenment.  A qualified Guru is a safe harbour that helps us navigate the stormy waves of samsara while on the spiritual path. This path is frequently fraught with obstacles, ego, delusions, and negative afflictions that easily confuses our polluted mind. A Guru snaps us out of our egoistic ideals and comfort zones, providing a light on the path, so that we may be able to gain clarity and wisdom on our journey towards awakening.

Disciples of Thekchen Choling are greatly blessed to have a Guru, Singha Thekchen Namdrol Rinpoche, to be our precious guide and teacher. He radiates kindness and compassion, is a caring father, and is also a wise spiritual guide who is always with us no matter how difficult the circumstances may be. The love he has for all of us is boundless and great. His wisdom strikes our deluded minds to have clarity, planting the seed of Bodhichitta deep within our mindstreams. Through him, we are inspired to understand ourselves better, to have greater self-awareness, and to lead a purposeful life that benefits others!

Importance of the Guru

"Devotion is the opening through which the nectar of the guru’s blessings enters us."

- Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Singha Rinpoche teaches experiential Dharma, encouraging us to apply and practice the Dharma in our daily lives. Numerous disciples have received the heart of Rinpoche’s teachings, encouraging us to cultivate a Bodhisattva heart, as well as to dedicate our lives to benefitting all beings with love, compassion, and wisdom. To do this, we need to crush our self-cherishing mind and ego, so that we may realise the vast and boundless Buddha Nature that exists within all of us. Taming our minds on this path can only be achieved with a qualified Guru who can guide us to enlightenment.



Many of us have felt the essence of Rinpoche’s teachings by allowing it to transform our daily lives. We have witnessed the awe-inspiring means of his wisdom and skilful actions to awaken us. The vastness of his compassion and wisdom is indescribable.

Therefore, we pray that our Guru will live a long and healthy life so that he may be able to continue turning the wheel of Dharma to benefit all sentient beings. On this special occasion that marks the birth of our Guru, Singha Rinpoche, we dedicate a long-life Guru Puja to him and all lineage Gurus. Just as what Lama Zopa Rinpoche said about blessings, it is due to the kindness of our Gurus that we are able to receive blessings from Buddhas:

“The blessings of Buddhas cannot be received without a guru. The benefit of correctly practicing guru devotion is that it liberates you from oceans of samsaric sufferings and brings you to enlightenment. By pleasing the guru your negative karma is burned up in a second.”

Let’s all come together to request Singha Rinpoche and all lineage Gurus to live a long and healthy life to turn the wheel of Dharma for all beings in this long-life Guru Puja.

May all our Guru’s Dharma wishes be fulfilled and actualised immediately!

May all sentient beings be able to enjoy the Dharma day and night and gain awakening through our Guru’s enlightened activities!

May all countries live in peace and harmony, and may all people enjoy stability, growth and success!
