    In 2005 Khen Rinpoche gave a commentary on the Kunzang Lamai Zhalung (Words of my Perfect Teacher) to Tibetan and Nepali monks who had just entered three-year retreat. We provide here the initial parts of Rinpoche's commentary translated into English by Judith Amtzis working with Ngo Drup Dorji, Lopon Sonam Tsewang and Sherpa Lama:

    For their translations of Patrul Rinpoche's root text, the translators wish to express their gratitude for the invaluable help provided by the earlier translations done by the Padmakara Translation Group and Sonam T. Kazi. We acknowledge any mistakes as our own. By the merit of this effort may all of Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche's aspirations be fulfilled. These six parts comrpise the entire unrestricted portion of Khen Rinpoche's commentary. The restricted portions are planned to be printed and distributed to students as appropriate.

    In early 2009 Khen Rinpoche gave a commentary on a short text by Mipham, "Lion's Roar: Buddha Nature in a Nutshell" to students of the Rigpa Shedra East. The translator for the teachings, Gyurmé Avertin, has prepared a translation of Mipham's text which is made available here.

    Since the inception of the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute on the campus of Namdroling Monastery, Bylakuppe, IN in 1978, Khen Rinpoche has taught extensively on subjects ranging from Shantideva through the most advanced of Vajrayana texts including those of Longchenpa and Ju Mipham.rinpoche

    Over the years in addition to his many teaching duties at the Insitute, Rinpoche has given many extended teachings for the benefit of students in Taiwan, Singapore and the West. These teachings include:

    Mipham's Essence of Clear Light - Ashland, OR 1998

    Longchenpa's Dispelling Darkness in the Ten Directions - Hawawii and Alameda 2003 - 2006

    Jigme Tenpai Nyima's Key to the Precious Treasury - Lerab Ling, FR 2003 - 2006

    Jigme Phuntsok's Placing Buddhahood Within Reach - Alameda, CA 2006

    At the Nyingma Palyul Retreat Center on Guru Rinpoche and Dakini Days the traditional Shower of Blessings tsog is practiced in the evening. The Shower of Blessings prayer book and an mp3 recording are made available here.

    Here is A Purification Practice and Yogic Ritual of Purifying One's Mind through Remorse according to the Immaculate Confession Tantra of the Peaceful and Wrathful Deities called Stirring up the Depths of the Hell Realm which is often practiced during teachings given by Khen Rinpoche.
