May bodhicitta, precious and sublime, arise where it has not yet come to be. Where it has arisen may it never fail, but grow and flourish more and more.
Unbroken lineages of wisdom traditions are rare in these times, and Kongtrul Rinpoche descends from a pure lineage of the Dzogpa Chenpo Longchen Nyingtik tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
We have two main study and practice centers in America: Phuntsok Choling in Colorado and Pema Osel in Vermont. Rinpoche teaches the core MSB programs at these two centers. In addition, MSB has several city centers or groups around the world where people gather for group meditation and study, and to listen to the LINK teachings together.
Browse to any of the calendars to find out more about the teaching schedules of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Dungse Jampal Norbu, or Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel. View the upcoming events at Phuntsok Choling, Pema Osel, or find out who is giving the next LINK talk.
MSB is a part of the Longchen Nyingtik and Khyen-Kong-Chok-Sum lineages. (Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, and Terton Chokgyur Lingpa, collectively known as Khyen-Kong-Chok-Sum, were the heart of the Rimé, or nonsectarian, movement, which did so much to preserve and harmonize all schools of Tibetan Buddhism in the nineteenth century.)

The Mangala Shri Bhuti sangha provides parsonage support for our teacher, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, and his family.
The Mangala Shri Bhuti sangha provides parsonage support for our teacher, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, and his family. We attain this goal through specific fundraisers, monthly contributions and teaching events. All funds raised for this purpose directly and personally support Rinpoche’s activity in turning beings towards the Dharma. Rinpoche’s wife, Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel, and son and dharma heir, Dungse Jampal Norbu, have studied and practiced under Rinpoche’s guidance for many years. They each have a deep wish to devote their lives to the study, practice, and communication of dharma to those who have an interest. Both have begun to teach and guide the next generation of dharma students. Offerings made to the parsonage are fully self-inspired rather than a requirement of students. If you are inspired to support Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel and Dungse Jampal Norbu through the parsonage or would like more information, please donate here.
