Karma Triyana Dharmachakra to present Khenpo Gangshar transmission event in May

On May 17–19, 2013, Karma Triyana Dharmachakra, the seat of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje in America, will present a special event. That weekend, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, the 89-year-old Abbot of KTD, will give the transmission of the Mind Teachings of Khenpo Gangshar, called “Naturally Liberating Whatever You Meet.”

Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche is one of a few great masters of the Tibetan tradition still alive today who was present at Thrangu Monastery in Eastern Tibet in August 1957, when Khenpo Gangshar gave these incredibly profound teachings on how to transform mental afflictions and suffering through the conjoined practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. His teachings profoundly affected many great masters of the late 20th Century, among them the late Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Very Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche, and others.
