Today, Khamptrul Rinpoche reached the UK safely and was graciously greeted by Tsoknyi Rinpoche, followers, and supporters of Tashi Jong. Some of these pictures were taken by Tsoknyi Rinpoche on his cell phone to commemorate Khamptrul Rinpoche’s first teaching in the West happening in the UK right now with over 200 students from around the world. This historic teaching tour will continue on to many cities in Europe (Oslo, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Paris and Munich) and to Buenos Aires, Argentina over the next two months. Tsoknyi Rinpoche organized this tour for Khamptrul Rinpoche (his reincarnation) and said he was very, very happy that he has come to teach in the West and that some of the Tashi Jong Togdens were able to join them as well. He was also happy that Pundarika UK did such a fine job hosting everyone in this first phase of the teaching of the tour.
[Editor’s note: Even though a few of the photos are a little fuzzy, we decided to include all of them to mark this momentous occasion!]
