Sattva Temple is the largest temple in the region, it faces Bird Island (“鸟岛”) besides Qinghai Lake, an enchanting place. Khenpo Tsapa Osel is the abbot of this temple and he is in charge of teaching the sutras and Dharma in the temple. Gyalwai Nyugu Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsapa Osel were students of Khenpo Chokyab (“曲恰堪布”). Now, many of these vajra brothers have become Khenpos or Tulkus. Khenpo Tsapa Osel heard that Gyalwai Nyugu was in Qinghai, so he invited Guru to visit Sattva Temple and to teach the Dharma. Upon receiving Khenpo Tsapa Osel’s (“扎巴奥赛堪布”) invitation, Gyalwai Nyugu departed to Khenpo Thubten Tenzin’s in Tso Tsa Temple (“娑扎寺”), and visited Sattva temple on 5 September 2012.

After that, Rinpoche came to a spring area located next to Qinghai Lake, a short distance of about fifty meters away from Qinghai Lake. Qinghai Lake is a salt water lake but surprisingly, the spring that is so close to the salt water lake is fresh water, the spring waters have continuously gushed up from the bottom for years. It was said that the 5th HH Dalai Lama came to this place before and the nomads lamented that the surrounding areas were salt water and fresh water was very far from here, and prayed for Lama’s blessing. So the 5th HH Dalai Lama blessed the place and since then, there is this spring and has been flowing ever since and solved the drinking water problems of the nomads.

After that, Rinpoche sat at the reef next to the Lake meditating, focusing on the space in front and praying to his kind root Guru – Lama Rinpoche. No matter where he goes, he never forgets to pray to his kind root Lama, this inspired many disciples to never forget to pray to Guru all the time and to rest constantly in the inseparable state between Guru and our own mind… Lama Chenno! Lama Chenno!
