Chinese New Year in Taiwan. It is tempting. To make things more auspicious, Ogyen Tulku has invited H.H. Garje Khamtrul Rinpoche Jamyang Dhondup -- incarnation of the Third Khamtrul, and for thirty years the senior Nyingma instructor of the Dalai Lama -- to visit the Samadhi Island center at 4F, No. 6-1, Lane 16, Shwang-Ho Street, Yung Ho, Taipei.
On February 5, 2011 (the third day of the Chinese lunar New Year) from 2:00 P.M., they'll be performing the Rigzin Dupa, followed by a Guru Rinpoche longevity empowerment at 7:00 P.M., and a Orgyen Norlha treasure vase ceremony. Somebody save one for me!
