The Sakya Centers of North America are delighted to announce that H.E. Luding Khen Rinpoche will be teaching in the USA and Canada in July and August 1996. He is the head of the Ngor lineage of the Sakya school and is one of the most highly qualified teachers of Tibetan Buddhismrenowned as a scholar and master of tantra. Rinpoche is the 75th abbot of the Ngor Monastery, the monastic center of the Sakya tradition. He was one of the last lineage holders to be able to complete a full traditional course of training before 1959 and has spent many years in retreat in both Tibet and India. In addition to giving many teachings, he re-established the Ngor monastery in Dehra Dun, India and has also been active in re-establishing the teaching lineage and rebuilding temples and monasteries in Tibet.
