The year 2010 marks the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910–1991), one of the most remarkable spiritual teachers of our time. To mark this special occasion, there will be ongoing activities celebrating his life and paying tribute to the benefits and activities he accomplished. Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, his tulku or reincarnation, will give teachings and empowerments, and preside over the ceremonies and offerings in Asia and abroad.
At every location Yangsi Rinpoche visits, there will be screenings of a new film on the life of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and a display of sacred relics, as well as ceremonies and empowerments. A boxed set of the collected works of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in English will be published as well as translations of sadhanas from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s termas. Prints of thangkas based on the terma cycles of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche painted by graduates of the Tsering Art School will also be available.
