Venerable Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen has received numerous empowerments and transmissions from great masters such as Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen, Kyabje Penor Rinpoche, Kyabje Trulzhig Rinpoche and Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche. Venerable Tulku Dagpa Gyaltsen has spent considerable time in various retreats and has completed his studies of rituals and liturgies. Venerable Tulku Drakpa Gyaltsen has also completed his studies at the Ngagyur Nyingma College, the shedra at the Mindrolling Monastery in Dehra Dun, India.

KonchokZoepa wrote:thanks for so extensive reply. i found out recently about Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche living here. havent met him yet. he lives in another city where i am currently visiting but he is abroad teaching.
the shitro drubchen and retreat already passed, that was actually the time when i found out about the center.
maybe the longchen nyingthik will be bestowed hopefully next year ? does that include chöd?

You are going to find a lot of disagreement about that.

OR seems to give the wang pretty regularly, as it tends to be included in his annual Oddiyana Retreats. He lives at his monastery---Wogmin Thubten Shedrub Ling---in Tso Pema (Rewalsar Lake, India). The Drikung Dzogchen Communities in the U.S. are trying to arrange a teaching tour for him as we speaked; it's slated for 2014.
