About Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche (born 1961), also known as Khyentse Norbu, is a Bhutanese lama, filmmaker, and writer. He wrote and directed two award-winning films, The Cup (1999) and Travellers and Magicians (2003); and served as consultant on Bernardo Bertolucci’s film Little Buddha (1993). He is author of the book What Makes You Not a Buddhist (Shambhala, 2007).
As a prominent tulku associated with Dzongsar Monastery in Derge, Eastern Tibet, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche was recognized by H.H. Sakya Trizin, and received empowerments and teachings from many of the greatest lamas of Tibetan Buddhism, including H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. the 16th Karmapa, and his own grandfather, H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche. His main guru was Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and further studied with more than 25 great lamas from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
While still a teenager, he was responsible for publishing many rare texts that were in danger of being lost entirely, and in the 1980’s, began the restoration of Dzongsar Monastery in Tibet. He has established several colleges and retreat centres in India and Bhutan. In accordance with the wishes of his teachers, he has travelled and taught throughout the world, establishing dharma centres in Australia, Europe, North America, and Asia.
In this time when the traditional structures of Tibetan Buddhism are facing challenges, and when Buddhism is reaching new audiences, Rinpoche is known for the freedom with which he moves between cultures and people, and his uncompromising dedication to bringing the philosophy and the path of enlightenment to anyone with an open heart.
