Save the Dates: Nyingtik Yabzhi Empowerments
with Khentrul Rinpoche
Katog Rit'hrod Mountain Retreat Center, Parthenon, Arkansas
October 11 - 24, 2020
Dear Dharma Friends,
Khentrul Lodrö T’hayé Rinpoche is delighted to announce that we have invited Kyabje Tulku Rinpoche, a high lineage holder of the Katog Tradition, to come for our annual shedra and bestow the unparalleled and rare transmissions of the Nyingtik Yabzhi, the Heart Drop of the Great Perfection transmissions compiled by Longchenpa, and of the Nyingtik Tsa-pö, the Heart Drop of the Great Perfection transmissions of Jigme Lingpa. This Katog master has one of the purest and shortest lineages of transmission amongst living teachers today and is one of the main Lamas to impart empowerments and reading transmissions at Katog Monastery. He received these empowerments from the renowned Katog Khenpo Khenchen Özer, who in turn received them directly from both Khenpo Ngaga and from Katog Situ Chökyi Gyamtso.
Khentrul Rinpoche encourages any student of his who wishes to deepen their practice, and in particular, to engage in the Great Perfection trainings of the Vajrayana, to make every effort to receive these rare transmissions. This will likely be the only time in our lifetime that they will be offered at Katog Choling, and we hope that everyone who aspires to realize the nature of their mind makes great effort to attend.
Because these transmissions are among the most profound, there are usually strict criteria for someone to receive them, however, Kyabjé Rinpoche understands that this is an extremely rare opportunity in the West. He kindly allows anyone who is already a Buddhist to attend.
