Venerable Drikung Lho Ontül Rinpoche, an eminent Drikung Kagyu lama and an engaging teacher who teaches regularly all over the world, will be at Three Rivers Tibetan Cultural Center to give a one-day empowerment and teaching on the Ruby Garland Buddha Amitabha practice.  Born in 1950 in Eastern Tibet, Ontül Rinpoche has received Mahamudra and Dzogchen teachings from many great masters and yogis: H.H. Dalai Lama, H.H. Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Yogi Pachung Rinpoche, Polu Khenchen Dorje, Ven. Khunu Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen, Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche, Khenpo Khedrup Rinpoche and others.  Ontül Rinpoche’s great strength as a dharma teacher was described by H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche as being “like a mountain in the ocean.”  It is a rare opportunity to meet such a qualified spiritual teacher who is accessible to practitioners who wish to embark on the spiritual path.
