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.)

Taming the mind is the first step towards having agency in our life. By taking responsibility for our mind – its thoughts and emotions – we are better equipped to face inevitable life challenges in an uncertain world.
The narratives we create with our habitual thoughts can weaken our ability to face these challenges. Exposing our mind to the discipline of Lojong – or mind training practice – provides us with the ability to transform those obstacles into fuel for personal and spiritual growth.
In this weekend program, Jampal Norbu will examine how discipline protects us from the downfall of reactivity, making it possible to use obstacles as a tool to transform the mind. He will draw on the wisdom tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, in which Lojong is an essential practice, accompanied by readings from Shantideva’s classic text, the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.
