This summer, we welcome Tsoknyi Rinpoche back to Lerab Ling. Many students who attended his teachings last year commented on how extraordinary his teachings and clarifications on meditation were. Tsoknyi Rinpoche is truly one of the greatest meditation masters alive today!
Rinpoche will teach from 6-9 August, followed by practice and guidance from one of his senior students on 10-11 August. A detailed description of the event will follow soon.
The Rigpa Annual Meditation Retreat, held just before (30 July-4 August), will offer you the basis and grounding necessary to follow this retreat.

Tsoknyi Rinpoche is renowned for his interactive teaching style and his quality of clarifying the subtle points and challenges of our practice, drawing on many years of teaching in the West.
Tsoknyi Rinpoche or Ngawang Tsoknyi Gyatso is the third Tsoknyi Rinpoche and was recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa as the reincarnation of Drubwang Tsoknyi Rinpoche. He is a renowned master of the Drukpa Kagyü and Nyingma traditions and the lineage holder of the Ratna Lingpa Lineage and the Tsoknyi Lineage.
Since 1991, Tsoknyi Rinpoche has been teaching in the Dzogchen tradition and he is one of those rare teachers whose lighthearted yet illuminating style appeals to both beginners and advanced practitioners alike. He is truly a bridge between ancient wisdom and the modern mind. His main teachers were Khamtrul Rinpoche Dongyü Nyima, his father Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche and Adeu Rinpoche.
His fresh insights into the western psyche have enabled him to teach and write in a way that touches our most profound awareness, using metaphors, stories and images that point directly to our everyday experience. He is widely recognized as a brilliant meditation teacher, is the author of three books, Open Heart, Open Mind, Carefree Dignity, and Fearless Simplicity, and has a keen interest in the ongoing dialogue between western research, especially in neuroscience, and Buddhist practitioners and scholars.
