Due to health problems His Holiness Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche will not be able to come to Dharma City this time. We invite everybody to join a "Tsok Bum" practice for 8 days (24 September - 1 October). We will dedicate the merit of this practice to Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche's health and we will pray that Rinpoche will be able to pay a visit to Dharma City next year.
During the Tsok Bum retreat Patrul Rinpoche will besow the reading transmission of Chö Ying Dzöd (The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena) and the empowerments of Rigdzin Dupa and Yumka Dechen Gyalmo. More information can be found here:

We are extremely delighted to announce that Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, the Supreme Head of the Nyingma School, will be granting the Longchen Nyingthik empowerments in Dharma City in September 2013, with the presence of Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche and Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche. The confirmed dates are 24September - 1 October 2013.
Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche was recognised as the incarnation of the great 10th century master Ngok Chöku Dorje. He studied with outstanding masters such as HH the 16th Karmapa and HH Dudjom Rinpoche, and received empowerments and transmissions of Longchenpa’s Heart Essence (Longchen Nyingthik) from HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
The Longchen Nyingthik (Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse) was revealed by Jigme Lingpa as a mind treasure and passed down to today’s masters through an unbroken lineage. It is a cycle of Buddhist teachings of the tradition of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen), a complete path to enlightenment and a direct approach for those who are striving for liberation from samsara for the benefit of all beings.
Dharma Citywill be inaugurated during this auspicious event.
