Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche will be teaching on “The Teacher and Student Relationship” via live webcast on April 1- April 3. All are welcome to join us at the Ann Arbor KTC for any or all of this event, which will be a great opportunity to experience Rinpoche’s inspirational teaching style on a topic essential to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition: the student’s relationship with the spiritual teacher.
Khenpo Rinpoche has been Abbot of our parent center, Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in Woodstock, New York, since its inception in 1978–the same year that he also founded the Ann Arbor KTC. Now well over 90 years old, he continues his Dharma activities with impressive energy, but as he has largely stopped teaching at the regional KTC’s, so this webcast will be a rare chance to see him teaching live.
Last month, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche received singular honors for his lifelong Dharma activities from His Holiness the 17th Karmapa during the annual Kagyu Monlam prayer event in Bodh Gaya, India. Click here for a report on the Karmapa’s web site.
Friday, April 1–7:00 pm
Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3–10:30 am and 3:30 pm
All sessions will last approximately 90 minutes. After the Saturday morning session, we will have the opportunity to submit questions for Rinpoche, to be answered in the afternoon session.
Suggested donation: $5.00 per session. No one will be turned away for lack of funds.

The members of Ann Arbor KTC were shocked to hear about the fire that destroyed the KTC in Columbus, Ohio and would like to offer our condolences and support. You are in our prayers.
Columbus is about 3 hours’ drive from Ann Arbor and the members have attended many events in Columbus over many years, as well as many at the Grubb St. location.

Khenpo Karma Tenkyong was recently appointed by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa as the new president of our parent monastery Karma Triyana Dharmachakra.
In February, 2015 he visited AAKTC and helped us with the details of some of the practices we do regularly. He also gave some teachings and helped us with the organization of the shrine.
A native of Nepal, Khenpo Tenkyong became a monk at a young age and completed an eleven-year course of Buddhist Studies at Karma Shri Nalanda Institute at Rumtek Monastery, culminating in a Master’s Degree. He has extensive experience teaching religious history, Buddhist philosophy, and logic, and has worked for more than eleven years at the Karmapa’s Office of Administration in Dharamsala, India.
