The Rinchen Terdzod Empowerments

Those Who Are Helping to Make it Possible

The Rinchen Terdzöd is bringing blessings to thousands of people and will continue to generate benefit for countless sentient beings for generations to come. Having such a precious coming together of all five perfections: perfect teacher, perfect place, perfect time, perfect teachings and perfect retinue, requires the enormous hard work and dedication of many devoted sangha members. Here we attempt to introduce you to some of our wonderful tulkus, khenpos, monks, nuns and staff members who work tirelessly and with enormous harmony and kindness. The pages which follow represent just a few of them.
