It is with great pleasure that we announce the long-overdue tour of the North American Palyul Centers by Tulku HE Gyangkhang Rinpoche. From March of 2017, Tulku Rinpoche will commence his tour on the West Coast and will offer both teachings and empowerments at the Palyul Dharma Centers across the nation and in Mexico City, finishing up on the East Coast t the end of April.
His teachings will cover both traditional topics such as the bardo, karma, and the Four Immeasurable Minds, and will also include fresh, modern topics such as “How to Practice Dharma in Your Daily Life” and “The Benefits of Buddhist Practice in the Modern World”. Numerous empowerments will also be conferred around the country to facilitate the ripening of the mind of Palyul practitioners and beings everywhere.
We welcome Tulku Rinpoche with much excitement and provide his brief biography below to demonstrate how fortunate we are to have the opportunity to receive his teachings and blessings in the upcoming year.
The Fourth Gyangkhang Rinpoche was born in India and formally recognized by H.H. Penor Rinpoche and other higher practitioners. At the age of four, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche invited him to stay in Namdroling Monastery and thereafter looked after him as his own child. At the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute (Shedra) he fulfilled his graduation with his scriptural knowledge. In addition he received the empowerments, oral transmissions, and pith instructions on the whole Kama and Terma teachings from His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and other higher practitioners.
In 1995, Penor Rinpoche bestowed on him the title of a “Tulku Khenpo” and recognized him worthy of a dharma teacher who can guide others towards the path of enlightenment. Gyangkhang Rinpoche has realized the meaning of both the sutra and tantra teachings of the Lord Buddha. At present, he acts as the Head Abbot of the Namdroling Monastery in India, which is the largest teaching center of the Nyingma lineage. It is home to over four thousand monks and nuns, is a religious institution ranging from kindergarten to college equivalence, performs religious activities, and offers a three-year retreat and meditation. Furthermore, Gyangkhang Rinpoche leads the annual retreat in upstate New York and periodically visits the Palyul Centers around the world.
