Khenpo Rinpoche, as he is often known, presently resides at Thek Chok Ling nunnery, which is a short walk from the famous sacred site, the Boudhanath stupa.
He is one of the preeminent senior teachers in the Karma Kagyu lineage and is widely known and loved in our community. Inthe Sakyong invited him to teach our senior students on an ongoing basis.
The Sakyong and many of the senior teachers in Shambhala have studied with Khenpo Rinpoche either personally or through his recorded and published works. Khenpo Rinpoche is well known for his lively style of teaching, his mastery of the songs of Milarepa, and his emphasis on realizing the view. The celebrations and offerings at the 80th birthday celebration were massive. Losar is a traditional time to make offerings to teachers and nearly 1, people visited Thek Chok Ling to wish Khenpo Rinpoche well and receive his blessings on the auspicious day.
Tibetans generally count themselves a year older on the first day of the year, so this marked the beginning of the birthday festivities. After morning practice held in four shrine rooms at the nunnery, everyone was offered non-alcoholic chang Tibetan barley beercoffee, and rice with nuts and fruit. Afterwards everyone was able to offer a khata to Khenpo Rinpoche and his principle student, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Afterwards, a huge Gyajtso banquet was served to all. Many eminent lamas and khenpos from the Kathmandu region and lots of local well-wishers also attended the event.
For the Taiwanese, Malaysian, and Western students these days began with sadhana practice tusltrim continued with pilgrimages to many of the sacred sites in the region. Mornings also began with lujong, Tibetan yogic exercise, instructed by Shambhala sangha member Alexandra Kalinine.
In the evenings groups sang the songs of Milarepa, Khenpo Rinpoche, and other masters, in Tibetan, English, Rinpohe, Spanish, and sometimes as many as six other languages. There were two full days of performance offerings that began with a tenshuklong-life offerings of body, kheenpo, mind, quality, and activity. This ceremony involved 16 separate organizations, Shambhala among them, offering long-life statues, texts, stupas, vases, and double-dorjes to Khenpo Rinpoche during an extended long-life supplication.
Amazingly, Khenpo Rinpoche offered back a 6-inch bronze Tara sculpture to each organization. Even more amazingly, the next day Rinpoche offered everyone at the event a 6-inch Tara, a text, and a small crystal ball, along with a CD of dharma songs.
There were more than full participants at the party. The offerings during the two formal days of celebration included beautiful music and artful dancing. The Awakened Heart Sangha sang wonderful songs about the buddha within and the delight of working tirelessly for the benefit tsultgim others.

Circulo Niguma offered several rousing Spanish versions of Milarepa songs and Tara dances. Singer-translator Jim Scott led the Pullahari program in a musical offering. This particular rendition included warrior cries and illusory horse-riding—much gyajtso the style Khenpo Rinpoche popularized in the West — except that nuns cantering in a swirl of maroon robes through a courtyard at night took the practice to an unexpected level.
There were many touching performances from all sanghas, and several that were completely amazing, particularly one by the Taiwanese sangha, which was near Olympic in quality. Composer Gyamtsoo Burgess and a small troupe presented sections of her Yeshe Tsogyal opera, complete with a large mural from the New York performance stage set. On the final day of celebration, many tinpoche prayers were sung, and cupcakes were served to all present by 16 offering goddesses.
Throughout the event there was a theme of East meets West, and traditional meets modern. Khenpo Rinpoche often watched the gathering from a window overlooking the Tek Chok Ling courtyard. From there he could easily watch performances, lujong practice, rehearsals, and the ongoing flow of guests vyamtso about the nunnery.
He seemed to take everyone in with a vast mind and a gentle gaze. The entire celebration was permeated with his compassion and vision. On the final afternoon, Khenpo Rinpoche came down to attend the culmination of the event from a throne set up facing the courtyard khennpo beneath the shaded porch of the main temple. Rinpoche watched all the offerings with great interest and the occasional touch of play. After the conclusion of the celebration, the five event coordinators met with him and said that they were planning a party for his 90th birthday that would include even better songs and dances.
Khenpo Rinpoche responded that because, in equality, there was no better or worse, there could be nothing better than what had been offered. Then the coordinators said that each year between now and then, people would return to sing and dance.
