Milarepa (1040–1123 CE)—saint, poet, and hermit—is a carrier of the lineage’s spiritual influence. Praciticing his guru yoga (union with enlightened mind) opens our mind to its own wealth. Nendo Rinpoche will explain this practice based on the commentary of Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye and transmit the empowerment.
Nendo Rinpoche, the sixth reincarnation of the Nendo Kulha lineage, was born in 1962. He was recognized by the 16th Karmapa and remained close to the Karmapa until he turned eighteen, when he moved to Ladakh to study and later accomplish a three-year retreat during which he practiced the six yogas of Naropa. He also received numerous other transmission, notably from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. D
At twenty-five years old, he was enthroned as the vajra master (dorje lopon) of Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim, India. He is still the 16th Karmapa’s dorje lopon today. He is currently responsible for Shamar Rinpoche’s monks and is in charge of the Karma Kagyü lineage’s activities in Sikkim. He is also the director of an important monastery in Kham, Tibet that is home to fifty-five monks.
Nendo Rinpoche is known for the quality of his listening and his simplicity.
Nendo Rinpoche will transmit the Milarepa empowerment on Sunday afternoon, October 1st.
Having taken refuge is a prerequisite.
