Lho Ontul Rinpoche is a root Teacher of Lama Mark Webber and a number of his students. Born in Tibet in 1950 and recognized at a young age as the rebirth of an accomplished 19th century yogi and one of Padmasambhava’s twenty-five main disciples, Ontül Rinpoche is an extraordinary Lama of the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Rinpoche received Mahamudra and Dzogchen lineage teachings from many of Tibet's greatest masters. And as a master of Dharma, he brings us transmissions and teachings of pure lineage and vital experience.
