News from Asia

In Taiwan, Ogyen Tulku sponsored a very successful event with H.H. Thubsang Rinpoche, who he refers to as the "king of the Dzogchen practitioners of the Palyul tradition." Thubsang Rinpoche is the most senior living lineage holder of Palyul: the Dharma brother and classmate of the late H.H. Penor Rinpoche, and one of Ogyen Tulku's most important teachers.

The event, on June 7th, included oral transmission of the Longchen Nyingthig Ngondro, a long-life mandala offering, and a well-attended luncheon.

Earlier, there was also a meeting with H.H. Karma Kuchen, the 12th Palyul Throneholder, in Hong Kong.
