Reading Transmission by Khenpo Chodrak Tenphel Rinpoche
April 1, 2016
During the 2016 Spring Semester at K.I.B.I., Professor Sempa Dorje taught The Treatise on Pointing Out the Tathagata Heart by the 3rd Karmapa Rangjung Dorje. As basis for his in-depth exploration of the text, Professor Sempa Dorje used the commentary by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye for elucidation. It was a rare opportunity for K.I.B.I.’s academic and guest students to receive these precious teachings which encompass the heart of all Karma Kagyu teachings. To complete the transmission, Khenpo Chödrak Tenphel Rinpoche bestowed the lung (reading transmission) for both The Treatise on Pointing Out the Tathagata Heart and its commentary. Khenpo Chödrak Rinpoche also gave the lung for another essential Karma Kagyu text, The Treatise on the Distinction between Consciousness and Wisdom, by the 3rd Karmapa.
