Ngakpa K Jigme Tonpa

Plainfield, Vermont

An early student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, now an ordained ngakpa & meditation instructor at Salmon Falls Sangha - a Drikung Kagyu and Karma Kagyu study & practice group.

I thank all my teachers & guides, particularly my ngakpa master Khenchen Könchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche & His Holiness the Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche of the Drikung Kagyu lineage, as well as His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche of the Karma Kagyu.

When needed I support teachers & lineage masters of the Drikung & Karma Kagyu, and can offer practical meditation instruction & occasional useful advice to aspiring students like myself. I also engage directly with the ritual landscape informed by both the Tibetan Buddhist & ancient Irish earth-energies traditions.

I have no significant credentials... other than to carry loads when asked. Like any mule, I also have been known to balk & resist good guidance from time to time. Sometimes my experience is useful to others.
