Kagyu Changchub Chuling

A center for the practice and study of Vajrayana Buddhism founded by His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche

Bokar Rinpoche India Retreats

Dated: August 15, 2001 The Board of Directors of Kagyu Changchub Chuling recognizes that: * the authentic source of our tradition (Dharma) is embodied in the great masters of our lineage, * our lineage is founded upon direct personal transmission of the teaching from the authentic source of dharma, * the opportunity is fading to be able to receive teachings directly from the most accomplished living masters of our lineage, * maximizing direct contact with the authentic source of dharma is critical to ensuring the authenticity of the dharma in the west, * Receiving teachings from Bokar Rinpoche, a primary lineage holder, generally requires the effort and expense of a trip to India. Therefore, the Board of Directors strongly encourages individuals to take personal responsibility for receiving teachings directly from our lineage holders in general, and specifically confirms the essential role of Bokar Rinpoche's India Retreats to the accomplishment of the mission and vision of KCC.
