Interested to see these references to mind treasures. So he is a Terton? That's not mentioned in his Rigpa wiki page. Tertons are generally prophesied (often in prior ter) and vetted as many here have pointed out in questioning the authenticity of a white Brit claiming to be a terton.. should we not be equally inquisitive about Tibetans who claim new terma? As far as I'm concerned, the more Tertons on the planet the better.. but I am curious to learn more since I've been hearing about this Ngakpa Lama for years and I recall a reference to a Kali practice he developed from a vision but this is the first I've heard reference to "'mind treasure" which means terma... which has a precise definition...

Well, Rinpoche is going to need an assistant in Europe next year, so... :smile:

No, according to the "strict" definition Rinpoche is not a Terton. He is not even a Tulku so how can he be a Terton? These teachings are Pure Visions.

Being a recognized tulku is not a precondition for being a terton.

A Terton has to be one of the 25 disciples of the Guru Rinpoche, correct? So how can one be a Terton, without being a Tulku, given that they would have to be a rebirth of one of the 25 disciples?

Rinpoche does not "plan" to go anywhere. People get organised, invite him, pay for his transport, accommodation and food and then he comes. He has been to the US in the past. I can chase down the organisers and you can bust their chops if you wish...

Or, if you want to be sure, you can talk to some people and together you can invite him. ;)
ok

Note that he said recognized Tulku, I am guessing that was the emphasis.

One can be an emanation of Guru P, for example, Rigdzin Jatson Nyingpo.

Rinpoche also gave us the lung for a prayer that he has written (found in his, as yet, untranslated extensive Mahadeva practice) where one calls/invites by name the dakini and ketrapala of each of the 51 sacred spots. He then gave an incredibly in depth explanation of the significance of each spot.

What I find impressive about Rinpoche is that he explains all these prayers and practices using his extensive historical research as well as his spiritual realisation.

An experience strongly recommended.

You can invite Loppon and organise a retreat pretty much on your own, btw. The only potential problem is securing the visas.
