"Bringing the Dharma to Hopi"
My name is Kymberlee Ruff. I have been asked to be "The Messenger of the Hopi/Tibetan Prophecy." This is not the Hopi Prophecy nor the Tibetan Prophecy. It is a third separate and distinct Prophecy that was created from where the two Prophecies overlap.
I have just returned from visiting Hopi with the Venerable Lama Losang Samten. Lama Losang is the perhaps the premiere Tibetan sand mandala maker in the world today. He was the Personal Attendant to His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama prior to moving to the United States in 1988 to introduce the sand mandala to the West.
An awesome team of great friends have been working together to bring Lama Losang to Hopi. Losang came to meet with the leaders and Elders out of his of deep respect for the way and the traditions of the Hopi. It is the belief that creating the Chenrezig: Boddhisattva of Compassion Mandala here may help to bring about balance that could benefit the world.

The "Hopi/Tibetan Prophecy" has entered another phase. The Buddha Padmasambhava had prophesied :
"When the Iron Eagle Flies and Horses with Wheels will run on roads.
East Will Meet West. Red People will meet Red People.
At that time my teachings will benefit the world."
His Holiness 14th Dalai Lama
For so many reasons we are living in the most important time in history. The prayers and ceremonies of people all around the world have all helped us to pass the tipping point toward a Time of Never Ending Peace.
We were so lucky to be able to visit such sacred sites at Hopi as the ancient village of Walpi. Hopi consists of three Mesas which make up twelve villages. Each village has a rich history and it's own magic!
Ven. Losang Samten is a very special Lama. Losang embodies the qualities of loving-kindness, patience, and joy. Losang gave a slide show presentation to the Hopi to explain the history Tibetan Buddhism and how they have been forced out of their country since 1959. He explained that the Tibetans were in no way attempting to convert anyone. Their purpose is only to share the wisdom and compassion teachings of the Buddha.

Losang explained how the Tibetan art form of sand painting is an ancient and sacred practice intended to uplift and benefit not only every person who sees it, but also to bless the environment. He talked about the meaning of the Chenrezig mandala and how it represents the Boddhisattva of Compassion.

We are also living in the most stressful times in the history of humankind. We are so fortunate to have been brought the teachings and ceremonies of the Tibetans to help us through these degenerate times.
Tibetans believe that every person whose heart is moved by love and compassion, who deeply and sincerely act for the benefit of others without concern for fame, profit, social position, or recognition expresses the activity of Chenrezig. Love and compassion are the true signs revealing the presence of Chenrezig.
I believe that our planet is moving together in this direction. The Tibetans say that all people regardless of religion, race or gender want the same thing: TO BE HAPPY.
These teachings of the loving kindness can help every single person to achieve happiness!
may all beings benefit,
