Drubwang Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche is in the Benchen Monastery in Tibet right now giving teachings on Mahamudra. More than six thousand rinpoches, khenpos, lamas, monks and nuns have gathered. Everybody is joining four sessions each day, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. In the morning the first session is teachings, the second session is group meditation and in the afternoon it is the same.
Everything goes very nicely. The participants are all very happy for this rare opportunity to receive teachings by Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche.
