H.H. Orgyen Ku-Sum Lingpa

Like a lightning bolt that illuminates mind's very essence, His Holiness Ku-Sum Lingpa's powerful realization awakens the listener to new states of clarity and compassion.

In Tibet he is renowned as a supreme revealer of spiritual mind treasures. The Chinese, who imprisoned him for twenty-three years as too charismatic to set free, now call him a kung-fu master after he single-handedly prevented a crowded bus from careening off a mountain road, threatening death for all passengers.

In India, His Holiness the Dalai Lama acknowledged him as a master of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen). A very profound relationship between the Dalai Lama and Ku-Sum Lingpa is well known throughout India and Tibet. His blessings are not bound by time and space, but now we in the United States are especially fortunate that he is coming to bestow his wisdom. His visit to the U.S. from Golok, Tibet, fulfills prophecies and the ripening of karmic bonds, and has vast potential to benefit those who establish spiritual connection with him.

His Holiness Orgyen Ku-sum Lingpa and His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, head of the Nyingma lineage, will come to Kunzang Palyul Choling in May of 1995.
