ABOUT KALU RINPOCHE
The present incarnation of Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche was born in Darjeeling, India, in September 1990. His birth was accompanied by auspicious signs, where the monastery was covered with a canopy of rainbows similar to the ones that appeared at the Parinirvana of the previous Kalu Rinpoche. On the 28th of February 1993,
Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche was enthroned at his monastery and given the name Karma Ngedon Tenpey Gyaltsen – Victory Banner of the Teachings of the True Meaning.
Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche received the complete cycle of teachings and empowerments of the Shangpa lineage at the age of eleven and completed his three year retreat in 2008 at the age of 18. Since then, Rinpoche has been teaching at his monastery and traveling around the world to teach in Europe, America and Asia.
The Glorius Shangpa Kagyu Lineage is dating back to the wisdom enlightenment of two female Dharma practitioners of the 11th century, Niguma and Sukhasiddhi. Through his extraordinary teaching style of establishing a direct and heart-felt dialogue with the audience, Rinpoche welcomes us to the heart of his lineage with deep simplicity, warmth and humour. Kalu Rinpoche will be teaching directly in English with German translation.

The suggested fee is intended to help to cover partly the expenses of the seminary through tickets, visas and insurance for Rinpoche, his entourage and translator as well as the cost of the event and an offering to Rinpoche and monastery. The whole organizing team of the Benchen Tashi Ling non profit trust is working unsalaried. Should there be any surpluses from the event, it is used for the construction of Benchen Arya Tara Ling nunnery founded by Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche. We are very happy if you are in a valuable position to support this! Nonetheless if you require a reduction, please don’t hesitate to ask. No one should be excluded from the teachings for financial reasons!
