Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Venerable Khenpo Karma Tharchin Rinpoche (b. Spring, 1924), widely known by his abbreviated name Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, is a highly regarded Lama of the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism. He currently serves as abbot of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra Monastery in Woodstock, NY. Born in Kham, Tibet to a nomadic family, Khenpo Rinpoche is not (in contrast to most Rinpoches) a Tulku or reincarnate Lama, but has achieved his realization in this lifetime. He began his religious training under his parents, who were both devout practitioners, and at the age of 12 entered Thrangu Monastery to continue his education. At age 20, he received the Gelong ordination from HE the 11th Tai Situ Rinpoche at Palpung Monastery. Following a series of retreats including the traditional 3-year retreat, he returned to Thrangu Monastery for advanced education in Buddhist studies. After five years of study, at age 30, he was awarded the Khenpo degree and began teaching.show more
