Orgyen Dorje Den offers the following introduction to the remarkable event about to take place in Almeda.
As a student of both HH Penor Rinpoche and Yangthang Rinpoche, and having had the great blessing of receiving the full RT from HH Penor Rinpoche in India in 2001, as well as contributing to the translation of many parts on HHPR instructions, I will try to offer as many information on all the aspects of the Rinchen Terzod as I can in preparation for this wonderful event.
What I offer is based on our previous work which was subsequently revised by much more scholars than me and I welcome any additional material and corrections as possible to make this a place to look and hopefully get an idea of what is going to happen. Please contact me directly for any material which could be published here for everyone’s benefit , thanks you .
To open this series , here is the announcement from Orgyen Dorje Den on the Rinchen Terzod event .
VENERABLE YANGTHANG TULKU RINPOCHE
DECEMBER 1, 2010 – FEBRUARY 18, 2011
Orgyen Dorje Den invites you to join us for a historic Dharma event. At the request of Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche, Yangthang Rinpoche will bestow the transmissions of The Rinchen Terzod.
The Rinchen Terzod, the Treasury of Precious Termas, was compiled by Jamgon Kongtrul the Great with the blessings of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo and Chogyur Lingpa. The precious collection includes many of the major termas that had been discovered before 1889 and is quite extensive. It will take 3 months to confer the entire cycle of hundreds of empowerments.
Venerable Yangthang Rinpoche is an emanation of the great Vimalamitra and the immediate re-incarnation of the Terton Dorje Dechen Lingpa. Rinpoche is a main lineage holder in the Nyingma Tradition and one of the most highly respected Buddhist teachers in the world today.
Gyatrul Rinpoche says that …
“Yangthang Rinpoche is truly a precious jewel.”
May all beings benefit!
