DATES CONFIRMED FOR TRANSMISSIONS BY KYABJE RIZONG RINPOCHE
Lelung Dharma Trust has just received confirmation that Kyabje Jangtse Choje Rizong Rinpoche will give an important series of transmissions for the Geden Phacho Bhucho project in December 2008. Starting on 14 December, Rinpoche will give twenty days of oral transmissions (lung in Tibetan) from three key figures in the Gelug lineage:
- Ngulchu Yabse Sum Khedrup Nagwang Dorje (1720-1803)
- Ngulchu Dharmabhadra (1772-1851);
- and his disciple Ngulchu Yangchen Drubpai Dorje (1809-1887)
The texts covered by the transmission include many deities' practices. For anyone practicing the three main Gelugpa deities, this is a truly unique opportunity to receive the oral transmissions from such an accomplished master. Kyabje Rizong Rinpoche was born in Ladakh in the early 1930s. He was recognized and enthroned as a child as the reincarnation of the founder of the illustrious Rizong Hermitage. Rinpoche has conducted numerous retreats and is renowned for his Tantric powers. He is frequently called upon by H.H. the Dalai Lama to lead ceremonies for healing and other similar purposes.
The event will take palce at Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India. This location has great significance because the authors of the texts are from Tashi Lhunpo. This event will inevitably bring great benefit to participants, the monastery, and the Buddhist tradition. For full details, including travel advice, see the Geden Phacho Bhucho website.
