AMITABHA RETREAT with Gartrül Chime Dorje Rinpoche
and Drubpon Tsering Rinpoche

Siddha Gar Chime Dorje was a great practitioner and an embodiment of the Avalokiteshvara (the Buddha of Compassion) and a spiritual master of H.E. Garchen Rinpoche. After his parinirvana, through his great aspiration, he again took rebirth as Chime Dorje in India.
The present Chime Dorje Rinpoche was born in 1984, with many auspicious signs occurring at the time of his birth, he was recognized by H.H the 37th Drikung Kyabgön Chetsang Rinpoche and was officially enthroned in 1992 at Jangchubling Monastery, Dehra Dun, India.
Chime Dorje Rinpoche completed his basic monastic education at Jangchubling Monastery. Rinpoche also received the entire set of empowerments, oral transmissions and instructions of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage from H.H Drikung Kyabgön Chetsang Rinpoche, H.H Drikung Kyabgön Chungtsang Rinpoche, H.E Garchen Rinpoche as well as from many other eminent Rinpoches of the Drikung Kagyü Lineage. Rinpoche also visited the Gar Monastery in Kham, Tibet and studied at the Buddhist Institution, Larong Serta Narig. Back in India he joined the Zongsar College and studied there for many years. Growing up in this modern era, he expresses openness and interest towards the problems faced by modern day practitioners.

YAMANTAKA Drubchen - Description
