April 2, 2018: With heartfelt gratitude, we bid farewell to Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche after his weekend visit to PCD-DC.  Thanks to everyone who donated their time, money, resources and spirit to making Khen Rinpoche's visit such a success.  And special thanks go to Khen Rinpoche, who we pray has safe travels, robust health and long life!

   This is the audio recording from Khenpo Tenzin Norgay Rinpoche's visit to PCD-DC on April 1, 2018.  It is a traditional commentary on the Wheel of Analytical Meditation by the 19th century meditation master and celebrated scholar Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche. The Wheel has been used by PCD-DC as our study guide for the intermediate meditation classes. This teaching from Khenpo Norgay is an opportunity for students to receive these instructions from an official lineage holder of Mipham's wisdom.

PCD-DC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
