We have the great honor to announce the coming of Tenzin Chomchok Dza Patrul Rinpoche, direct reincarnation of the Tibetan Master Patrul Rinpoche, writter of the book « My Perfect Teacher ».
Bhutan is a particularly sacred area, where Vajrayana Buddhism has been able to flourish and remain, hardly affected by modernization. Guru Rinpoche travelled through Bhutan before going to Tibet and blessed places which are now very sacred pilgrimage spots.
During this trip, Namkha Rinpoche will grant special empowerments and transmission of the Düdjom Tersar tradition, in this country that was so dear to the hearts of H.H. Düdjom Rinpoche and Dungse Thinle Norbu Rinpoche.

In May and June 2014, Namkha Rinpoche and a group of students spent some times in Namkha Dzong. Rinpoche gave Dzogchen teachings and the students could practice in the beautifull remote area of Namkha Dzong, the retreat center of the Rigdzin Community. It was also the time to work on the painting of the east building of Namkha Dzong. Namkha Rinpoche gave a new name to the retreat center: Namkha Dzong Orgyen Khandro Ling.
