Continuing to “Keep the Lights On for Dharma”

The “Keep the Lights On for Dharma” telethon was a lot of fun! We raised $1990, in addition to the $2,250 we raised in an internal appeal. Thanks to everyone who participated! We enjoyed it so much that we’re planning another one in a couple of months. In the works: A “KPC Comedy Quiz Show.”

We DO still need to raise $2000 to avoid the cut-off. You can donate here. Or send a check to KPC/ P.O. Box 88/ Poolesville, MD 20837. Thanks!

To who our appreciation, we are offering the following gifts:

All Pervading Melodious Sound of Thunder: The Outer Liberation Story of Terton Migyur Dorje, by Karma Chagme, translated by Lopon Sonam Tsewang and Judith Amtzis

MDBiog 2Synopsis:
A translation of the biography of the great Nyingma master Terton Migyur Dorje composed by Karma Chagme. Penor Rinpoche made the request that this terton’s namthar, or liberation story, be translated into English. The namthar is not just the tale of one extraordinary terton, or treasure revealer, revealing as it does the deep personal relationship that existed between two great masters: Migyur Dorje and Karma Chagme Rinpoche. It also contains considerable information on the nature of liberation stories themselves, how authentic tertons and tulkus can be identified, the importance and significance of treasure teachings and sacred places, the nature of the guru-disciple relationship and other crucial topics.
