Temple Update
following Sunday teaching

The suggested donation is $25 per session or $108 for the entire weekend event.

No one will ever be turned away for an inability to make a monetary donation. There are always many opportunities to donate your time and energy, such as helping set up for practices or events, cleaning the shrine room after events, assisting the chopons, helping clean the grounds and facilities, bringing offerings of candles, incense, flowers, etc., to be used in the temple.

Khenpo Ten­zin Nor­gay Rin­poche was born in Bhutan in 1965. After com­plet­ing sec­ondary school in 1986, he joined Ngagyur Nyingma Insti­tute, the pres­ti­gious Bud­dhist stud­ies and research cen­ter, at Nam­drol­ing Monastery in Mysore. At the Insti­tute he stud­ied under Khenchen Pema Sherab, Khenpo Nam­drol Tser­ing and Khenchen Tse­wang Gyatso and other vis­it­ing pro­fes­sors, includ­ing Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok and Khenpo Pema Tse­wang from Tibet. He com­pleted the She­dra pro­gram in 1995 and joined the Insti­tute staff, teach­ing there for three years. He was for­mally enthroned as Khenpo by His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche in 1998 and was assigned by His Holi­ness to teach at the Bud­dhist col­lege at Palyul monastery in Tibet. Khenpo-la received all the major empow­er­ments of the Rinchen Ter­zod, Nam Cho, Nyingthik Yab­shi and Nyingma Kama from His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche and the Mipham Kabum from His Holi­ness Dilgo Khyentse Rin­poche. Because of his knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence, and flu­ent com­mand of the Eng­lish lan­guage, His Holi­ness Penor Rin­poche assigned him to teach stu­dents in North Amer­ica in con­junc­tion with Khenchen Tse­wang Gyatso Rinpoche.
