The Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche visited Lerab Ling this week and taught Rigpa students on the Four Foundations of Shangpa (the Shangpa Preliminaries).
This text was composed by Tai Situ Rinpoche in 2009 at the request of Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche. It was Tai Situ Rinpoche who recognised this third incarnation of Kalu Rinpoche in 1992 and formally enthroned him as the holder of the Shangpa Kagyü and Dashang Kagyü lineages on 25 February 1993.

In September of 2008 Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche completed his first three-year retreat.
This is the Yangsi Kalu Rinpoche's second visit to Lerab Ling. He first visited as a child in 1994, before the temple was built.
