On the 3rd of January 2015, everyone welcomed Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche back to Mindrolling Monastery, where this great master will preside over many ceremonies and bestow empowerments through the course of the Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche bestowed the entire Rinchen Terdzod at Mindrolling in 2008-09, as well as the Kama empowerments in 1997-98. Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche was also in attendance when Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche bestowed the Rinchen Terdzod at Mindrolling in 1978-79. We are truly blessed to have this accomplished teacher in our midst once again, during this special time.
