On this day of celebration of the lunar new year, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, the founder and spiritual director of Nalandabodhi International, shares good wishes for all. Rinpoche encourages making practical aspirations based on kindness and gentleness towards ourselves and others during this Year of the Earth Pig. What a wonderful way to begin!
It is with great sadness that we acknowledge Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s passing into parinirvana on October 6th, 2019.
Born in eastern Tibet in 1924, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche was one of the great masters of the Karma Kagyu tradition.
On behalf of all Nalandabodhi members, we offer our heartfelt prayers and love to Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, his students, and all those impacted by his passing. May his example continue to inspire bodhicitta in the hearts of all beings and cause the genuine dharma to flourish in the ten directions.
