I am truly rejoicing at this Sadhana of Mahamudra tsok gathering on Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s anniversary today.

The wisdom of mahamudra and mahasandhi is not some idea that just popped up and became trendy recently. The wisdom of mahamudra and mahasandhi has not just survived for more than 2,500 years but has had a powerful and profound effect on all kinds of people from all walks of life – from prostitutes to mighty kings, from small clusters of practitioners to whole nations and dynasties.

If we could only begin to fathom that wisdom, you will realize how incredible and precious is this inheritance today. You will know that you must have done something right in all your previous lives just to have encountered the name Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and his teachings.

The amazing Takpo Kagyu and Longchenpa lineage forefathers and foremothers: – May their Force always be with you!

Born in Bhutan in 1961, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, was recognized by H.H. Sakya Trizin as the third incarnation of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, the founder of the Khyentse lineage, and the immediate incarnation of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö. He received empowerments and teachings from the greatest lamas, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa and his own grandfathers, Kyabjé Dudjom Rinpoche and Lama Sönam Zangpo, but his main master was Kyabjé Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. The Khyentse tradition being non sectarian (Rimé), he received teachings from masters of the the four main schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He later attended London's School of Oriental and African Studies. Working tirelessly for the preservation of the Buddhist teachings, he has created centres of learning in Bhutan, India, the Far East as well as in Europe, Australia and North America, while supervising his traditional seat, Dzongsar Monastery, in Eastern Tibet.
