As dharma students we enjoy a rich lineage of dharma teachings and practices — and precious teachers — none more so than H.E. Garchen Rinpoche.  H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche has called him “a true bodhisattva.”

Please join us for an extremely auspicious opportunity to receive his blessings in person in Tucson, AZ, on December 8th and 9th, 2018.



On Saturday, December 8th, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche will offer a special Milarepa empowerment and teaching, followed the next day by his heart advice on Five-fold Mahamudraand Dzogchen.  Pith instructions such as these manifest rarely.  Senior students will instantly grasp the importance of these teachings, and all students will benefit incalculably from his ability to distill the essence of the dharma into plain spoken instruction infused with love.

The revered great yogi, Jetsun Milarepa, is perhaps the most famous of Tibetan Buddhist masters. His profound odyssey, from evil-doer to enlightened master in a single lifetime, exemplifies the remarkable transformative power of the dharma. H.E. Garchen Rinpoche’s vast insight into the mind of Milarepa will illuminate our true nature.

Mahamudra is often translated as “the great seal”, and Dzogchen as “the great perfection”. What makes them both great is that they represent the absolute peak of spiritual attainment, the complete realization of the path.  Only highly realized masters can access these vast realizations and teach from direct experience, also known as “heart advice.” His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche is just such a master.
