About Kunzang Dechen Lingpa Rinpoche
Rinpoche is a terton (revealer of Dharma treasures) in the Ancient
Lineage (Nyingma) of Tibetan Buddhism. Renowned in his homeland in
Northeastern India, he is a realized master of Dzogchen who
personifies compassion and spiritual power, combined with integrity
and a playful delight in life. His revealed texts include many
profound practices, including the special healing Chv of Troma Nakmo,
the wrathful personification of enlightened activity expressed in
feminine form, and the extremely wrathful healing practice of Garuda
which he revealed recently in Topanga, California.
Kunzang Rinpoche was born in the Earth Snake Year - 1928, in Southern
Tibet in Lhodrak. He is the 13th reincarnation of the Buddha Rinchen
Tsug Tor Gyen. From childhood he was only interested in spiritual
things. At 16 he went into full time spiritual retreat, and studied
with Dudjom Rinpoche for 10 years. It was prophesied, and he became a
terton or treasure revealer at age 20. Rinpoche was recognized by
H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche as the Lodhak Terton, the reincarnation of
Terton Longsel Nyingpo, of the Drubchen Melong Dorje lineage.
Based on premonitions of the ensuing holocaust, Kunzang Dechen
Rinpoche left Tibet for the famous "hidden land" of Pemakod in 1955,
4 years before the Chinese takeover of Tibet. After 7 years in
meditation retreat there he eventually settled in Assam, the
northeastern extremity of India. There he received prophecies in his
dreams from Guru Padmasambhava that two gonpas or monasteries should
be built in that area. Acting on his vision, Rinpoche first built
Tashi Choling nunnery in Assam. Over a decade later, in the
neighboring state of Arunachal Pradesh Rinpoche discovered the exact
location as depicted in his previous dream for the Zangdokpalri
Temple. The local people have donated this mountaintop and the temple
is now under construction to precise specifications, according to
Rinpoche's vision of Guru Rinpoche's palace in the Copper Colored
Mountain pure land.
Rinpoche is renowned for his "pure vision" treasure revelations of
Dorje Drollo, Throma Nagmo, Garuda and many others he directly
received from Padmasambhava. His unique Healing Chv practice has
brought healing and relief from suffering to countless beings around
the world. In these times of rampant degeneration Rinpoche's
teachings illuminate and dispel the darkness of ignorance, delusion
and suffering. Kunzang Dechen Lingpa Rinpoche personifies wisdom,
compassion, spiritual power, integrity and delight in life.
"in the experience of yogins who do not perceive things
dualistically, the fact that things manifest without truly existing
is so amazing, they burst out in laughter"
--Longchenpa. (from The Choying Dzod)
