How KPL Came To Be


In late 1970s, His Holiness the 16th Karmapa sent a personal note to Bardor Tulku Rinpoche. The note read:



“Dear Bardor Rinpoche:
My prayer that the teaching of your dharma may fill Jambudvipa is always in my mind, all day and night.
Do not be timid about this; be earnest.
I pray that I see you soon.
Karmapa”


Bardor Tulku Rinpoche saved this treasured note but he was not sure what the note meant exactly.

In 1999, Bardor Rinpoche had very vivid dreams of His Holiness the 16th Karmapa and in the waking state he strongly felt his presence to the extent that he could perceive the Karmapa's smell. The dream of the Sixteenth Karmapa helped Bardor Tulku Rinpoche decide that it was time to begin the dissemination of the teachings of Terchen Barway Dorje (First Bardor Rinpoche) in the West.

In 2000, Bardor Tulku Rinpoche established the Raktrul Foundation, which initially served both the religious and secular missions. In 2003, the two missions were separated with the Raktrul Foundation dedicated to charitable missions for Tibet, and Kunzang Palchen Ling newly established as the venue for dharma teachings in general and especially for the study and practice of the Terchen Barway Dorje lineage teachings.
