In Celebration of
the Centennial of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

In August 2010 Vancouver Welcomed
Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche and Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche
to the West Coast of North America

The year 2010 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991), one of the most remarkable spiritual teachers of the 20th century. His enlightened wisdom, compassion and extraordinary presence is evident in Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche, who in August 2010 visited North America for the first time, accompanied by Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche and Mathieu Ricard.

Lotus Speech Canada, under the auspices of Changling Rinpoche, was honored to host the centennial celebration in Vancouver.

This website was originally created in support of the Celebration preparations. We are now reworking it as tribute. New photos and articles will be added from time to time, and we hope that you enjoy them.

Lotus Speech Canada will host other great teachers over the next several years. To receive information about all Lotus Speech Events and Teachings, please click here.
