About The Teacher
Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche was born in Bhutan in 1961, and was recognized as the main incarnation of the Khyentse lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The young tulku was educated primarily by another meditation master, poet and peerless scholar of the Khyentse lineage, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and also received teachings from the great 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, and his own grandfather, Dudjom Rinpoche. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche supervises his traditional seat of Dzongsar Monastery and its retreat centers in Eastern Tibet, as well as his new colleges in India and Bhutan and centers in Australia, North America and Europe. Under the film name Khyentse Norbu, Rinpoche directed the critically acclaimed feature film The Cup and the more recent Travellers & Magicians.
