A TEACHING BY SANGYUN KAMALA RINPOCHE
Tuesday, September 25, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Sangyum Kamala was born in the northern Indian State of Himachal Pradesh into an extraordinary Dharma lineage. Sangyum was raised in an environment infused with Dharma practice, the blessings of faith and the power of Secret Mantra. At the age of 20, she married Chatral Sangye Dorje, the greatest Dzogchen master of our time. They were married for 50 years before his passing Dec 30, 2015.
During her entire life, especially the half century spent with Rinpoche, Sangyum Rinpoche received an uninterrupted stream of Dharma teaching and transmission, and has practiced mainly in the Dudjom Tersar and also in the Longchen Nyingtik traditions. Sangyum Rinpoche has constantly supported the retreat practice of countless sublime yogis and yoginis throughout Nepal and India under the guidance of Chatral Rinpoche, and especially she has demonstrated her deep compassion by caring for the humblest of the humble in both material and spiritual ways. She carries on Chatral Rinpoche’s example of freeing lives every year in Calcutta by releasing millions of fish into the Ganges and has constructed numerous stupas, prayer wheels, and other holy supports in both India and Nepal.
