The Profound Meditation Instructions on Mahamudra -  

With Khamtrul Rinpoche.

For the second time in the history of Lerab Ling, we have the pleasure of welcoming Gyalwa Dokhampa Shedrub Nyima, the 9th Khamtrul Rinpoche, an outstanding teacher of the younger generation of masters from the Drukpa Kagyü tradition. His exceptional presence, and the peace and compassion he transmits, create the perfect environment to receive these profound teachings.

This year, Rinpoche will teach on the profound meditation instructions on Mahamudra by using a short text by Pema Karpo, the 4th Gyalwang Drukpa, entitled A Record of Mahamudra Instructions. Mahamudra is a simple, direct method for looking beyond our conceptual dualistic fixation to the unchanging, luminous nature of our minds.

Rinpoche will also be accompanied by two tokden monks - Tokden Achö and Tokden Tutop Nyima - who will both lead guided meditation sessions. Tokdens, literally meaning ‘realised ones’, are yogic practitioners who devote their whole lives to retreat and meditation practice.

This extraordinary lineage of practice and realisation was established by the previous Khamtrul Rinpoches in Eastern Tibet and continues unbroken to this day.

Recognized by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa and Kyabgon Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, he is the supreme head of Khampagar Monastery in Kham, overseeing more than 200 monasteries and nunneries in Eastern Tibet as well as its present seat in Tashi Jong, India, where the tradition of Tokdens, or realized yogis, is continued to this day.

He received intensive training and the complete transmission of the Drukpa Kagyu lineage from his main teachers H.E. Dorzong Rinpoche and Kyabgon Adeu Rinpoche, and many teachings and empowerments from Kyabgon Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Kyabgon Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche. In his visits to Korea, Taiwan and South Asia his outstanding presence and the peace and compassion he transmits has attracted a great number of followers.

Tokden Chökyi Lodrö (Achoe) was born in 1932 in Tibet and joined Khampagar Monastery at the age of 10. He studied for seven years and at seventeen went into retreat for ten years, receiving teachings from Kyabgon 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche. In 1960 he fled to exile in India with Rinpoche. Together with a group of lay followers they were able to set up the Tashi Jong Community in Kangra Valley, where the new Khampagar Monastery was built.

Tokden Achoe has worked hard building up the Khampagar Monastery and Community at Tashi Jong while receiving many teachings and empowerments from 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche and other realized masters over the years, being in retreat whenever he could. In 1986 he was appointed as personal attendant to the young Gyalwa Dokhampa 9th Khamtrul Rinpoche, travelling with him in Asia as well as on pilgrimages to many holy Buddhist sites.
