The Rinchen Terzod, “The Precious Treasury of Termas”, is a collection of over 700 empowerments from the 100 great tertons, assembled by Jamgon Kongtrul with the help of Jamyong Khyentse Wangpo, in the 19th Century.    Through the efforts of Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche and his students, the Rinchen Terzod was given for the first time in the West, by Venerable Yangthang Rinpoche. They took place through December, January and February at Orgyen Dorje Den in Alameda, California.
