TEACHINGS AND EMPOWERMENTS
WITH VENERABLE KHENCHEN TSEWANG GYATSO RINPOCHE
May 23-25, 2014
In 1983 he was enthroned as a Khenpo (professor) by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, who also at that time selected him to be Namdroling Monastery’s main worldwide representative. He has since traveled the globe teaching, conferring empowerments, and giving personal instruction in Buddhist practice to anyone who wished to receive it. During his first visit to Dallas in the Spring of 1998 Rinpoche founded Palyul Changchub Dhargyayling Dallas. Now a Khenchen (most honored or highest professor), Rinpoche’s profound level of accomplishment, impeccability in maintaining his vows, deep understanding of the Western mind, and precious ability to speak to all levels of students at once, make him one of the most highly respected and revered teachers of the entire Palyul/Nyingma lineage.
We are deeply honored to have our Founder and Spiritual Director Venerable Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche with us once again!
