                                          HH Penor Rinpoche & Khenpo Tsering Dorje
"I have great confidence that Khenpo Tsering Dorje will benefit many beings as a spiritual guide and teacher. Therefore i request all concerned to revere him as a religious master and assure that anyone who have dharmic connection to Khenpo will be benefited in this and the life after."
-- Kyabje Drubwang Penor Rinpoche
( Supreme Head Emeritus of the Nyingma Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism ) 
Khenpo Tsering Dorje of the Palyul Nyingma
Khenpo Tsering Dorje is the seniormost Khenpo-Graduate of Penor Rinpoche's main seat in-exile, of the Nyingma Palyul Lineage, the grand Namdroling Monastery. Khenpo has taught also in the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's main seat in-exile in Nepal.  
Being a distant relative of the late Dudjom Rinpoche from Pema Kod, Arunachal Pradesh, India, Khenpo Tsering Dorje has brought the precious Dharma into some of the remotest corners of India and has built retreat centers, clinics and schools for many of the poorest communities of people there.
HH the Dalai Lama and Kyabje Drubwang Penor Rinpoche have both graced Khenpo Tsering Dorje's monastery in the far-flung region of India ( via helicopters !! ) with Their holy presence and have both given their complete blessings and expressed Their great happiness at Khenpo's wide-reaching activities for the holy Dharma. 
Many of Khenpo's own students are themselves teaching in some of the most important centers of learning within and without the Nyingma Lineage, throughout the world.
This will be Khenpo Tsering Dorje's first public teaching in Singapore.
Khenpo will be giving the complete teachings on the practice of the Wrathful Guru Takhyung Barwa of the Longchen Nyingthig Cycle as well as 3 of the major empowerments in the cycle.

Programme Details

Longchen Nyingthig --

THE "Great Treasure Cycle" of Tibet


The Longchen Nyingthig Treasure Cycle is one of Tibet's largest and most authoritative terma cycles, whom literally countless luminaries practised and attained Perfect Enlightenment.


Literally, the Longchen Nyingthig means ???Heart-Drop of the Vast Expanse??.


The cycle includes the COMPLETE path to Buddhahood, starting from the "Lam-Rim" section, the Deity Generation Stage practices, the Completion Stage practices and finally the Great Perfection section.


The beings of CAS are now ploughing hard towards the complete transmission as well as subsequent practice-support of this cycle by some of the most qualified Masters alive today.


All our friends are exhorted not to miss out on this most precious opportunities of our infinite lifetimes lost in samsara ......!!  


Please support through ceaseless dedications towards fulfillment of all holy wishes for good of the Teachings and all father and mother sentient beings !!



The Complete Sacred Empowerments


We are so blessed that HH Drubwang Penor Rinpoche has given His blessings and approval for the great empowerments of the major aspects of Longchen Nyingthig to be given in Singapore. 



The Follow-Up Teachings


Provided all factors hold constant, one of the seniormost Teachers in HH Penor Rinpoche's monastery, Khenpo Tsering Dorje, has consented to teach in Singapore on all major aspects of the Longchen Nyingthig in the coming months and years, as well as to confer all the supremely powerful initiations of the cycle. 



The Complete Path to Buddhahood


So, students who wish to receive the "authorizations" and blessings via the great empowerments and the teachings for the COMPLETE PATH TO BUDDHAHOOD, this, will be an invaluable, arguably "historic" opportunity truly, via one of Tibet's greatest Teachings - the Longchen Nyingthig Treasure Cycle, the sacred legacy of the Great Guru Padmasambhava and Buddha, the Enlightened One.     





There will be no specific pre-requisites or subsequent commitments to uphold before or after the programmes for students taking the empowerments as blessings. 

Serious students who wish to practise subsequent to the teaching-transmission, will, however, be fully empowered to continue with the follow-up practices as well as any commitments.  

All relevant practice texts will be made available to all retreatants and the serious students.

Simultaneous translation into Chinese is available. Students requiring Chinese translation need to be equipped with a FM radio and a headset.
