Crystal Mountain Society is pleased to sponsor
Drikung Lho Ontül Rinpoche and Lho Karma Ratna Rinpoche
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, Lho 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. As a master of Dharma, he brings us transmissions and teachings of pure lineage and vital experience. He has traveled extensively to teach students throughout the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe. Ontul Rinpoche will be accompanied by his compassionate and wise son, Lho Karma Ratna Rinpoche, who acts as translator. Ratna Rinpoche was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama and H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang as the Quality Emanation of the great Drikung Treasure revealer Lho Nuden Dorje. Both Rinpoches and families reside at the Drikung Monastery in Tso Pema, India, which Ontul Rinpoche founded in 1971.
