Rinpoche Visits Berkeley To Seal The Deal

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche visited the University of California at Berkeley to celebrate the establishment of the Khyentse Foundation Distinguished Professorship in Tibetan Buddhism in August, 2006. He toasted the efforts of everyone involved saying, “I feel with this one contribution we’ve started the equivalent of 100 monasteries.”  Rinpoche, KF Advisers Gene Smith and Steven Goodman, Board Member Kris Yao, and Executive Director Cangioli Che received a warm welcome on the UC Berkeley campus. A reception was attended by Berkeley Executive Vice-Chancellor and Provost George Breslauer, Vice-Chancellor for University Relations Don McQuade, Dean Jane Broughton, and Buddhist Studies faculty, graduate students, and friends.
