“Terchen Barway Dorje cared deeply for educating lay people and for bringing the most powerful teachings to men and women living as ordinary people. In this he was something of an outsider. He could have lived as a monk, reserving the highest dharma for monks, but he chose not to. His students are the beneficiaries of a tradition that insists on bringing dharma to life through living it.”

Lama Yeshe Gyamtso completed two three-year retreats during the 1980s at Kagyu Thubten Chöling under the guidance of Kyapje Kalu Rinpoche and Lama Norlha Rinpoche. He has since been teaching and translating for many great masters, including His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa and Bardor Tulku Rinpoche.

Atsara Empowerment
Atsara is an important protector practice in the Barway Dorje lineage. Dharma protectors, usually depicted as fierce deities, ensure that the compassionate activity of the Buddha’s teaching is carried out successfully. The fierce appearance of such deities is not to be understood as something negative, rather it is to convey a very intense and capable compassion that can get things done by overcoming obstacles.
