His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa’s Program in Queens, NY. Apr 25 -29, 2007
His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa is one of the few living, genuine treasure revealers — who clearly remembers (as Lalung Paldor, one of the 25 heart disciples) receiving transmissions directly from Guru Rinpoche at the original Samye temple — and one of the most precious, senior masters still living in Tibet.
April 25, 2007 (Wed) 7.00pm-9.00pm Queens, NY
Tsa-Lung practice is one of the sacred tantric teachings that is considered secret. “Tsa” refers to subtle channels and “Lung” refers to the vital breath or prana. The yoga of Tsa-Lung consists of working with the prana and the channels contained within one’s body. The perfection of Dzogchen comes with the perfection of tsa-lung. – Suggested donation $20

APRIL 10 AND 11 H.H. KUSUM LINGPA OFFERS EMPOWERMENTS OF CHENRIZIK AND VAJRAKILAYA IN NYC
His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa is one of the most revered Nyingmapa lineage holders and Tertons (treasure revealers) of our time. He is the supreme abbot of Thubten Chokhor Ling Monastery where is still resides in Golok, Tibet.
His Holiness joyfully radiates a youthful, timeless essence through His own old age and sickness. This will be the last time His Holiness will generously travel from Tibet to offer His profound, compassionate connection to all those who seek it! It is prophised by The Great Dzogchen Rinpoche, Mingyur Dorje that, “He (Kusum Lingpa) will guide all those connected to Him to Sukhavati, the Realm of Great Bliss.”
Regarding His life’s work, His Holiness has said in recent years: “Much earlier in my life, I made a pilgrimage to Samye (the first Buddhist monastery built in Tibet, constructed during the time of King Trisong Detsen.).” There, due to good karma, auspicious coincidence in conjunction with the needs of these current times, I saw all my past and future lives. I recalled all the teachings I had received directly from Guru Rinpoche when I was His disciple, and I saw all the hardships and difficulties of the time in which I am now living. This makes it possible for me to reveal these teachings which are of particular benefit now, in this time of great suffering yet profound opportunity.”

Vajrakilaya Terma Empowerment for World Peace
by His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa
New York May 1-6 2003
His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa will offer a program in New York City this year that will focus on dispelling obstacles we all face within and around us. Joining us in His Holiness’ profound activity is integral to establishing peace and harmony in the world. It is from the enlightened mind of the Lama that we are strongly encouraged to practice the wrathful, yet compassionate Buddha Vajrakilaya. His Holiness will be offering His own unique, timely Terma revelation. Our program will include this empowerment and practice instruction.
There will be corresponding ceremonies for preserving and increasing the life energy of ourselves and the natural environment through liberating lower realm consciousness.
Kusum Lingpa’s compassion toward us all is unbounded and unyielding and therefore is often expressed in ways that defy convention, but serve the greater purpose of challenging us to wake up from our prejudices and delusions. His Holiness knows all too well the state of world affairs that challenges us all. His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa has dedicated the remaining years of his life to following through with his vision to establish peace and harmony in the world, with total and fearless dedication.
