The very popular and openly powerful Ninth Ogyen Tulku is winding up an extensive North American tour in New York City this weekend, March 6th and 7th. If you have not already met him, I would encourage you to do so. They say that effortless compassion and generosity are the hallmarks of great realization. If you want to see what this looks like, take the opportunity to meet Ogyen Rinpoche.
On Saturday and Sunday, at 2:00 p.m. on both days, he will be at the Nyingma Palyul Dharma Center, 121 Bowery, 3rd Floor (between Grand and Hester). On Saturday he will bestow the Black Dzambhala empowerment, and on Sunday, the Amitayus Longevity empowerment.
If you have ever wondered what it was like to meet great lamas, one-on-one, back in the 'sixties... well, now is your chance. In a few more years, when he has 100,000 students clamoring for his attention, it might not be so easy.
