All human beings are the same.
We all want happiness and do not want suffering.
Even people who do not believe in religion recognize
the importance of these human values
in making their life happier.”

The Ripa Ladrang Foundation joyously welcomes to the United States and Canada His Eminence Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche in August, September and October.

We are extremely fortunate, particularly during these degenerate times to have this opportunity to receive teachings from such an authentic, highly realized master and we wish that all may benefit from his deep wisdom and compassion.

The Great Terton Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche, pillar of teachings from the earlier translations, fourth generation of the Ripa family lineage, master of profound mind treasures and the lord of refuge was born with amazing signs on the tenth day of the first month of the Tibetan calendar. He was born in 1939 in Rigon Tashi Choeling, belonging to the upper part of Tsawagang in the south of the great land of Tibet. View Full Bio.
