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.
You may browse directly to any of the calendars to find out more about the teaching schedules of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Dungse Jampal Namgyel, or Elizabeth Mattis Namgyel. In addition, you can 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.)

During the Rigdzin Dupa and Dechen Gyalmo drupchos (week-long intensive sadhana retreats) held each Fall and Winter, respectively, at Phuntsok Choling, our center in Colorado.
During the Rigdzin Dupa and Dechen Gyalmo drupchos (week-long intensive sadhana retreats) held each Fall and Winter, respectively, at Phuntsok Choling, our center in Colorado, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche and MSB students accumulate feast-offering prayers in order to dispel obstacles on the spiritual path and increase harmony in the world. We invite you to share in the merit of this practice by submitting prayers on your own behalf or for those in need. Prayers are read aloud each day, and during the practice, Rinpoche and his students keep those prayers in mind.
The monetary offering that traditionally accompanies a prayer request is used to purchase feast offerings for the practice.
