This is an extremely rare and important event: Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, one of the greatest living Nyingma masters, and principal lineage holder of the Northern Treasures, will be in Virginia August 27 through September 12, 2010. during which he will bestow the entire wang and lung of the Kunzang Gongpa Zangthal -- the highest Dzogchen teachings of the Northern Treasures tradition and one of the three most supreme Dzogchen transmissions along with Nyingthig Yabzhi and Ati Zabdön Nyingpo. It was revealed by the great tertön Rigdzin Gödem (1337-1408) who was one of the three foremost tertöns who were emanations of Guru Padmasambhava himself.
To my understanding, this has never been given outside of Asia, and it is likely this will be the only time it is ever given in the United States. This precious opportunity has been arranged by Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, and is absolutely unprecedented.
The event will be held at Lotus Garden, the North American seat of Mindrolling International, in Stanley, Virginia. The organization has a web page which gives all the details about who, what, where, when, and why.
