Great Mani Blessing

Decemer 11 - 15 2006
Medelon, Germany

Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche was born in Drikung, Tibet in 1921. He entered Drikung Nyima Changra Buddhist Institute at a very young age, and studied Buddhist philosophy. After his graduation, Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche became the disciple of one of the foremost contemporary retreat masters of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage. The retreat masters's name was Drubwang Pachung Rinpoche (1901-1988). Under the guidance of Drubwang Pachung Rinpoche, Drubwang Konchok Norbu went on many years of retreat.

After the so-called Chinese Cultural Revolution, Drubwang Pachung Rinpoche sent Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche, once again, back to solitary retreat. This time for ten long years without a break. It was during this period that Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche gained the supreme experiential understanding of Mahamudra. Many times he saw His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his visions.

Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche currently lives in the Drikung Kagyu Institute in northern India. He is 79 years old. Some years ago, Drubwang Rinpoche forewarned that he would leave this world for the benefit of all sentient beings. It was because of H.H. Dalai Lama's request that Drubwang Rinpoche agreed to stay on for a few more years. In September, 1999, His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote a long life prayer for Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche at the request of the Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, the Supreme Co-Head of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Drubwang Konchok Norbu Rinpoche does not give tantric empowerments or lofty teachings on Mahamudra, or on Mahasandhi. He encourages and inspires people to do the simplest of all dharma practices: extend kindness, and recite:
Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hung, and Om Ah Hung Vajra Guru Padma Siddhi Hung
