10-Day Teachings 2016: Inspiring Stories of an Amazing Life

scolvey-8234scolvey-8489The 10-Day Teaching has been part of KTD’s summer schedule since 1989. It is taught by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche for a large group of happy and loyal students. Each year Khenpo Rinpoche teaches important texts and helps students connect to their practice – whether it’s Shamatha, Tonglen, Chenrezig or Ngondro. It’s also a time and place for students to renew friendships and build their dharma sangha community.

scolvey-8472This year, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche taught the Inner Autobiography of Karma Chagme, sharing the dreams and visions of the great 16th Century master who lived at the time of the 10th Karmapa. Participants said they felt a powerful blessing from hearing these stories, and Rinpoche himself said he was sharing them to inspire students in their faith and confidence in dharma and the great masters.

During the program, several photographers were on hand taking pictures for us to share. Here are some links to our photo albums – we hope you enjoy our “KTD family reunion” as much as we did!
