Sogyal Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche during an empowerment

A (not yet) complete list of empowerments given to the Rigpa Sangha:


Note: empowerments given before 1977 did not happen at Rigpa centres, because Rigpa was not then founded. However, since there were a number of Sogyal Rinpoche's students present, they have been included here. In a similar way, empowerments given in the Dordogne and at public venues in London and Paris which were attended by many of Sogyal Rinpoche's students have been included.
