Siddhartha Festival in Bodhgaya India

Rinpoche will be leading the first ever Siddhartha Festival, November 11-13, 2016, a celebration of an Indian from the past. The three day festival will feature songs, lectures, dance, and offerings to the Bodhi tree. It follows the ten-day Dzongsar Monlam, which is open to the public. The Siddhartha Festival requires registration. For more information, contact info@siddharthafestival.com.
Khyentse Foundation Turns Fifteen 

To mark the occasion of Khyentse Foundation's 15 year anniversary, we commissioned French animator Marion Dupas to create this short introduction to the story of the foundation.
 
We couldn't think of any better way than animation to tell the story of how the foundation came to be and what preceded it. This 2 minute video illustrates the development of Rinpoche's mandala from his youth to today.
 
We hope you enjoy it. There will be versions in voice-overs by other artists and in other languages coming soon.

Rinpoche's Latest Book is Published

Rinpoche's new book, The Guru Drinks Bourbon? (Shambhala Publications) is now available. In this book Rinpoche addresses some of the most misunderstood aspects of the powerful guru-disciple relationship and gives practical advice on making the most of this precious opportunity for transformation. Through stories and classical examples, Rinpoche shows how to walk the path with eyes wide open, with critical-thinking skills sharpened and equipped to analyze the guru, before taking the leap.
