Dungsey Lhuntrul Rinpoche US tour – A short update:

Dungsey Lhuntrul Rinpoche recently visited New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco and bestowed teachings on Medicine Buddha (Sangye Menla) and Vajrasattva. It was a great joy for us to host Lhuntrul Rinpoche, who is the holder of the Ripa lineage, one of the oldest lineages of direct mind-to-mind transmission. He has received all the treasures, teachings and empowerments from his Father, Terton [Treasure Revealer] Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche. He has been enthroned as the next lineage holder. His presence is powerful and his teachings affect many in a gentle yet profound manner. We rejoice that he has begun teaching in the United States and wish that he continues to return to us to share his compassion and wisdom.

His Eminence Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche – The time has come for his long awaited US tour!  

Ripa Ladrang is very happy to announce that His Eminence Terton Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche will be bestowing teachings and empowerments in New York (August 19-21) and Los Angeles at Ari Bhod (September 15-19). He will also be offering teachings to the Tibetan communities in Boston (August 28), Minneapolis-St. Paul (September 3-4) and Toronto (September 10). 

As we prepare for our great living treasure revealer to arrive, the team at Ripa Ladrang is making every effort to be sure that many will benefit from the blessings of His Eminence Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche. It is our privilege and honor to serve such an authentic lineage.
