Kyabje Namkhai Nyingpo Jigme Pema Trinley Rinpoche in Drukpa Plouray from August 2024 10th to 16th

The 7th Namkhai Nyingpo Jigme Pema Thrinley is the Seventh reincarnation of Namkhai Nyingpo, living in Lhodrak Kharchu Monastery in Bhutan. He was born in 1966 and was predicted to be the reincarnation by his predecessor, the 6th Namkhai Nyingpo. He received teachings and empowerment from many learned masters, including His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso and His Holiness Sakya Trizin. He also received teachings from Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Zhadeu Trulshik Rinpoche Ngawang Chökyi Lodrö, and His Holiness Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, among others. He received teachings on various topics such as grammar, meditation, and bodhisattva practices. Rinpoche's tireless dedication to teaching and caring for over 1000 registered monks in more than 10 different monasteries around the world is truly inspiring.

We would like to bring to your attention that the teachings of H.E. Kyabje Namkhai Nyingpo Rinpoche will be translated into English.
