Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche
Toronto Visit 2017

It is with great pleasure we announce Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche will be teaching and conferring blessings to the sangha. Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen Rinpoche was born in Tibet and trained in Namdrolling Monastery Monastic College with top level honors. He has received countless teachings and transmissions from the greatest masters of our time, HH Dalai Lama, HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, HH Penor Rinpoche, Kyabje Khenpo Ngagchung, Kyabje Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, Kyabje Lama Achok, and so forth. Ven. Khenpo Kunsang Dechen lives in Toronto and has been a very reclusive practitioner. At the request of HH Karma Kuchen Rinpoche during his last visit to Toronto, Ven Khenpo Kunsang Rinpoche has agreed to teach publicly in order to benefit sentient beings in Canada. This is an extremely precious opportunity for everyone.
Khen Rinpoche will teach on the supplication to Guru Rinpoche called Spontaneous Fulfillment of Wishes. Following the teaching, he will conduct the summoning of longevity of Buddha Amitayus. The oral transmission of the long life Sutra and Dhahrani is from the lineage of HH Dudjom Rinpoche. This transmission of blessing is particularly helpful in overcoming diseases and lengthening our life-span.

The Long Life Arrow banner Khen Rinpoche will be using is the same arrow banner used by HH Penor Rinpoche during the Rinchen Terzod empowerments in the year 2000. During the "Long Life Expanding Arrow" empowerment His Holiness actually stretched this long life arrow banner by almost 3 inches (3 finger width). Tickets: $30
Khen Rinpoche will teach on the Noble Aspiration to Excellent Conduct, considered the King of Aspiration prayers. Following the teaching, Khen Rinpoche will display and confer blessings of the tooth relic of the HH Penor Rinpoche. Tickets: $30

Tickets can be purchased using the PayPal button below. Two tickets can be purchased by repeating the "One event" selection, or selecting once and changing the quantity on the PayPal cart page.
One event $30
