Event Details


H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

Born in East Tibet in 1936, Garchen Rinpoche is a realized master of the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. His incarnation is traced to Siddha Gar Chodingpa, a heart disciple of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon, the 12th-centry founder of the Drikung Kagyu.  


Studying and practicing under the direction of the Siddha Chime Dorje, Garchen Rinpoche received vast and profound instructions. Then, at the age of 22, after completing a two and a half year retreat, he was imprisoned for 20 years during the political turmoil of China's Cultural Revolution. While in the labor camp, he received meditation instruction from his root lama, the Nyingma master Khenpo Munsel. Enduring hardship and practicing secretly, Garchen Rinpoche attained realization of the lama's wisdom mind. Rinpoche is known for his vast realization and great kindness.
