Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche was the personification of enlightened courage. During the brief, fleeting time that he was with us, he transformed the American landscape in deep and expansive ways. It was through the power of his open-hearted kindness and insightful understanding that he made a meaningful and long-lasting impact on countless people.
Rinpoche established Chagdud Gonpa Foundation with its supporting membership to ensure the continuance of his legacy here in North America. Embraced by the Foundation, Rinpoche’s spiritual tradition, including the sacred landmarks he erected, continue to flourish. All this is through the power of Rinpoche’s blessings and the kindness, generosity and support of the lamas and members of Chagdud Gonpa Foundation.
Inspired by their own experience as members of Chagdud Gonpa, several sangha people produced a beautiful video to launch a membership drive. You will find it meaningful to hear Chagdud Khadro and others talk about Chagdud Gonpa Foundation membership and how you can be part of fulfilling Chagdud Rinpoche’s enlightened intention by becoming a supporting member.
