Purbuchok Hermitage (Phur bu lcog ri khrod) by Jose Ignacio Cabezon (January 30, 2006) Section 1 of 2 Distributed under the THDL Digital Text License. Location and Layout Purchok Hermitage (Phur lcog ri khrod) as viewed from the mountain behind it. Purbuchok Hermitage (Phur bu lcog ri khrod), one of the most beautiful and best restored of the hermitages of Sera (se ra’i ri khrod), is located halfway up the northern mountains in the Lha sa suburb of Dog bde at the northeastern corner of the Lha sa Valley. It takes about two hours to walk to Phur lcog from Lha sa, and almost as long from Se ra, but most people today take a bus to Dog bde and then walk north (up the mountain) from there. Phur lcog is the last hermitage (ri khrod) that pilgrims visit on the “Sixth-Month Fourth-Day” (Drug pa tshe bzhi) pilgrimage route. As with most of the hermitages of Sera, the surrounding landscape is considered blessed (byin can), and this blessedness or holiness is inscribed into the natural landscape around the monastery. Given its historical association with the so-called “Three Protectors (Rigs gsum mgon po)” – Avalokitesvara, Manjusri and Vajrapa?i – it is not surprising that several aspects of the landscape surrounding Phur lcog are associated with these three deities. Here is a summary of one account of the mountains around the hermitage: •To the west is a mountain in the shape of two auspicious golden fish (bkra shis gser nya) •To the north, the Soul-Mountain of Manjusri (’Jam dpal dbyangs kyi bla ri), known as Rmog tho ’go •On the side of that mountain there is a rock-outcropping that resembles a drawing of a white conch •The mountain to the east is associated with the palace of Avalokitesvara •Another mountain, that appears as if it had a flag on its pinnacle, is considered the mountain-abode (gnas ri) of Vajrapa?i, who serves as watchman or “door-keeper” (sgo srung) for the entire area. As for the actual site on which the hermitage was built, different meditators have had different visions of it. In what we have elsewhere called the “metaphysical rhetoric of sacred space,” sometimes Phur lcog is claimed to be identical to the six-syllable mantra (sngags) (o? ma?i padme hu?), sometimes it is seen as the Palace of Cakrasa?vara (Bde mchog gi pho brang), and at other times as the paradise of the Three Protectors. The history of the different buildings at the site is described in the History section below. What follows here is a description of the hermitage as it existed in 2004. Purchok Hermitage has three basic sections: •The main compound houses the main temple (’du khang) and the Temple of the Three Protectors (Rigs gsum mgon po lha khang) •Another compound presently contains the new library building and the debate courtyard •The large open area west and southwest of the library compound contains individual monastic dwellings/huts. The Temple of the Three Protectors. The main temple. With the exception of a portion of the Temple of the Three Protectors – whose original walls remained intact up to the height of the top of the windows – the main compound has been rebuilt from the ground up. Informants report that there has been an attempt to maintain the original layout of the compound as a whole. Like many of the mountain hermitages, this main temple compound is built in a tiered fashion that conforms to the landscape. Beginning from the highest (and easternmost) point, we find a large yellow building that towers over the rest of the monastery. This temple was built under the direction of Sgrub khang pa, the founder of the hermitage. It is the Temple of the Three Protectors. All of the original images on its main altar were destroyed, but they have been replaced with new images of the Three Protectors – Avalokitesvara, Manjusri, and Vajrapa?i – as well as other minor images. Adjacent to the temple is a room for the temple caretaker, with an adjoining kitchen. The interior of one of the monks’ rooms off of the middle courtyard in the main temple compound. As one follows the steps down from the Temple of the Three Protectors, one arrives at the next major tier of the compound, which contains a courtyard with several doorways: •On the northern side of the courtyard are two monks’ rooms that have ornamental yellow windows. In former times these may have been the quarters of high-ranking members of the Purchok Lama’s estate (Phur lcog bla brang). Today ordinary monks live there. •On the southern side are the private rooms of Phur lcog bla ma (easternmost), and a reception room (westernmost). To view the panorama of the middle courtyard at Purbuchok, you must have QuickTime installed. Left-click on the movie and move the mouse while keeping the button depressed.

Ruth Brinker Memorial San Francisco City Hall 9.12.11
Ruth Brinker, 89; Gave AIDS Patients Meals By DANIEL E. SLOTNIK Published: August 21, 2011 Ruth Brinker, who founded one of the first social service agencies dedicated to providing meals to AIDS victims too weak or impoverished to feed themselves, died Aug. 8 at her home in San Francisco. She was 89. The cause was complications of vascular dementia, her daughter Lisa said. Ms. Brinker started the agency, Project Open Hand, in 1985 after trying to help a friend in San Francisco who had AIDS. The man's condition had deteriorated from malnutrition, so Ms. Brinker organized friends to provide him with food. ''We got together and divided up the month to make sure he would get meals every day,'' Ms. Brinker told The New York Times in 1987. ''It worked well at first, but then people would forget.'' Some of the Samaritans went on vacation and neglected to provide for the man's care. When they returned, he had died. Ms. Brinker resolved never to let that happen again. She drew on her experience working in food service and later with Meals on Wheels to organize volunteers to deliver food to H.I.V. and AIDS patients in San Francisco. ''My friends thought I was crazy at first, exposing myself to people with this illness,'' Ms. Brinker told The San Francisco Chronicle in 2005. ''But I wasn't afraid.'' Her work inspired dozens of similar ventures across America. Project Open Hand now uses $5.6 million in private donations annually and government financing to provide 2,600 meals a day, as well as groceries to people who can cook for themselves. In addition to AIDS patients, its services are now offered to the elderly and to people who are homebound with other illnesses. Ruth Marie Appel was born in Hartford, S.D., on May 1, 1922. She moved to San Francisco in the mid-1950s and married Jack Brinker in 1957. They divorced in 1965. In addition to her daughter Lisa, Ms. Brinker is survived by another daughter, Sara; a grandson; and a great-granddaughter. query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9F05EFDA1039F932A...
