He is disciple of Padgyal Lingpa.
As i know, he comes to Singapore almost every year.
Perhaps you can drop by the centre to ask for more information?

For anyone in the U.S., this teaching will be given in Colorado this year by Drubpön Lama Karma:

http://taramandala.org/programs/12497/e ... e-retreat/

Lama Karma was heart student of Terton Pedgyal Lingpa Rinpoche, and he served as the scribe for the entirety of Pedgyal Lingpa’s Kusum Gongdü treasure cycle.

This lady that is in charge of all these programme quarreled with Gangteng Rinpoche, continue to use Rinpoche's centre "trademark"- "Yeshe Khorlo" as the centre's name, use it to host all other small names masters programme but Gangteng rinpoche's programme is no longer host by this centre in Singapore. When Rinpoche accepted invitation by other group in Singapore for a Guru Rinpoche's retreat programme, she became jealous, quarrelled with some people who attend the other programme and it maybe the eventual cause that she quarrelled with Rinpoche later.

Interestingly, Singporeans caused the Singpore Gar of Dzogchen Community to be disbanded last year. How? They quarreled in front of ChNN.

That must have been a hefty quarrel.

It was apparently. They had gone to Tenerife to resolve some disputes over integrating with the IDC, but there was one faction that insisted on control of the Gar. So the boss deep-sixed it since they could not get it together.

I was involved in the Singapore DC, from a distance. IMO, it was more due to people having long-standing tensionswith each other over many years rather than anything specifically to do with the IDC, I made a thread ranting on VC some time last year or so after it happened.

Anyway, back to topic, I posted this because I want to get independent opinions on a lama. I think this is perfectly alright and not "speculation". If you get a serious diagnosis you want to get an independent opinion right?

Not sure if related,but when Choyi Nyima Rinpoche came to Singapore last year to give teachings on Heart Sutra, he mentioned that Singaporeans are uptight and tense and I think he seemed to imply that it is not good for dharma practice.

And yeah,I was with the Singapore DC for two before it was disbanded,pretty sad. :crying:

It is a terma by Apong Terton based on the seven-line prayer. There is a short sadhana and a very long sadhana.

I went for the teaching. I found Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche approachable and knowledgeable.

He and his entourage didn't have any English translations of the sadhana though, does anyone know where to get them?
