Tibet House, 22 W. 15th Street, NYC

Wednesday Feb 22, 7pm

Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche is the son of the Third Neten Chokling Rinpoche. After the passing of his father, Rinpoche took care of his monastery in Bir, India. He raised the young reincarnation of his father, the 4th Neten Chokling Rinpoche, before passing to him full responsibility for a monastery that had become famous throughout the Tibetan world, particularly among the Nyingma school, for its expertise in elaborate Vajrayana rituals in 2004.

Rinpoche also attended Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche for many years, and it was with him that he first traveled to the West. Between 2004 and 2006 Rinpoche went twice to Tibet to rebuild the monastery of his father. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche was also a Member of the Tibetan Parliament for the region of Kham, first elected in 2000 and reelected in 2005 earning a reputation as a formidable orator. Rinpoche still lives in Bir, and travels occasionally to Europe, America, and Taiwan. He is well known for his incredible memory and the depth of his knowledge, particularly in the field of Vajrayana practices and rituals, and history.
