Kyabje Dungse Garab Rinpoche
— Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche —
Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro
At the request of Kyabje Tulku Pema Thinley Rinpoche, we are pleased to announce Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen and Ven. Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche have agreed to teach the Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro. The Longchen Nyingtik Lineage or the lineage of the Great Perfection is based upon the terma revelations of the 18th century treasure revealer, Rigzin Jigme Lingpa. He was a reincarnation of the 8th century Dharma King Trison Detsen, who in order to firmly establish the Dharma in Tibet, invited Guru Padmasambhava to Tibet to help complete and consecrate Samye, Tibet's first monastery. Due to the unbroken lineage blessing from Rigzin Jigme Lingpa to our present time, the Longchen Nyingtik is practiced widely by all Nyingma lineages.
Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche was born in Tibet and studied in Namdrolling Monastery Monastic College with top Honors. He has received countless teachings and transmissions from the greatest masters of our time like Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kyabje Penor Rinpoche, Kyabje Khenpo Ngagchung, Kyabje Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, Kyabje Lama Achok Rinpoche, Kyabje Tulku Pema Thinley Rinpoche and so forth. Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen lives in Toronto and is a reclusive practitioner. We are extremely pleased he has agreed to teach and give this precious opportunity of lineage blessing to everyone. By donation.

Date: Saturday, November 10 · Sunday, November 18 · Saturday, November 24 · Sunday, November 25
Time: 1–3pm Session One — 3:30–5:30pm Session Two
