錫金哦寺是由祿頂堪千仁波切在1961年所建立,是第一所海外的哦寺,為當年移居海外的僧人提供了棲身之處。多年來,除了培育僧才外,也是當地百姓生活的一部份。IBA國際佛學院的拿旺久登堪布即是來自此寺。

Luding Khenchen Rinpoche founded the Sikkim Ngor Monastery in 1961, under the guidance of H.H. Sakya Trizin. The monastery has been an important place for sangha development, e.g., it was in this monastery where IBA’s Khenpo Ngawang Jorden got ordained and trained before going to Sakya College.

慶典首先由塔澤堪仁波切致辭,歡迎嘉賓。隨後,哦寺主任貢嘎喇嘛作簡短致辭,然後是祿頂堪千仁波切講述創建哦寺的歷史緣由。仁波切説當年共同創建寺廟的大部份人士都已經不在了,就剩下他,所以他覺得有必要告訴大家這段歷史,仁波切並一再強調戒律(毗那耶)是佛法的根本,因此具有持戒的僧團和寺院以供學習,非常重要。久登堪布為兩位仁波切的致辭擔任英語翻譯。

The ceremony started with a welcome address by Thartse Khen Rinpoche, followed by Luding Khenchen Rinpoche talking about the history of founding this monastery. Rinpoche said that most of the founders are no longer in this world,  so he feels it is necessary for him (Rinpoche will soon celebrate his 81th birthday) to tell us how this monastery came about. Rinpoche also stressed several times that Vinaya is the root of all Dharma practices.

隨後, 法王和錫金總理共同揭開了計劃興建高等佛學研究院的碑文。法王致辭時談到薩迦昆氏家族與錫金王室數百年來的長久淵源,1961年在錫金建立哦寺的必要性,並且説寺院除了是培育僧才之處,也是在家居士廣種福田的處所,所以非常重要。

Later, H.H. and the Chief Minister of Sikkim unveiled a plaque of the proposed SNCC Faculty of Higher Buddhist Studies. H.H. Sakya Trizin, Sikkim Legislative Assembly Speaker KT Gyaltsen, and the Chief Minister of Sikkim Dr. Pawam Chamling all gave a short speech respectively on this auspicious occasion. H.H. mentioned the long time relationship between the Khon family and the Sikkim Chogyal (king) family, the importance of founding this Ngor Monastery in Gangtok back in 1961, and that the monastery is not only important for sangha development, but also acts as a critical place for the lay practitioners to grow their merits.

錫金議長和錫金總理也分別致辭,薩迦法王並帶領僧眾為地震受難者進行特別的祈願祝禱。就在這段祝禱開始的時候,在陽光照射的晴天下,卻落下了大滴的雨珠。

最後,典禮在吉祥祈願文的唸誦中,圓滿結束。

Towards the end of the ceremony, H.H. led the sangha to perform a special prayer for the earthquake victims. Right after he started a couple of verses, at noon time, big rain drops descended from the sunny sky throughout the prayer. Then the ceremony was concluded with Auspicious Prayer and a group lunch.
