The Spiritual Director of Dharmakirti International, Khenchen Paljea Dorjee Rinpoche, has requested HE Jigmed Lodro Rinpoche to give the precious Dzogchen teachings from the Nyingtik Yabshi. This is a collection of Dzogchen texts based on Vima Nyingtik from Vimalamitra and Khandro Nyingtik (The Heart Essence of the Dakinis) from Padmasambhava, on which Longchenpa wrote Lama Yangtik and Khandro Yangtik commentaries respectively. Together these four Dzogchen texts are known as the Nyingtik Yabshi – The Four Branches of Heart Essence.
Teachings on the Khandro Nyingtik have been rare in the United States, so this is an extrordinary opportunity you will not want to miss! HE Jigmed Lodro Rinpoche is one of the most accomplished scholars in the Nyingma lineage and teaches in English, speaking in a very concise and clear manner.
Jigme Lodro Rinpoche was born in 1969 in Golok-Dhome of Tibet. He was recognized as the reincarnation of Genyen Dharmata. It is said that Genyen Dharmata was the server of the sixteen arhat principal disciples of Buddha Shakyamuni and was himself a realized master from the Alasha Monastery at Five Peaked mountain of China. At the age of eight, he joined Talang, a large monastery in Golok, then continued his studies at Gemang Hermitage Place, Larong, the city of Dharma in Sertha, and other Dharma places in Kham.
He has studied Sutras, Tantras and Tibetan culture and religion. In 1998 he came to India and became a great editor for both the Tibetan government-in-exile and private editing centers. More than two hundred of his essays have been published inside Tibet and in Tibetan-in-exile communities. Some of his books were published by acclaimed publication centers of the Tibetan government-in-exile, including the Department of Education, Department of Information, and other Tibetan cultural and religious publication centers. His writings are well-respected and complimented by many great scholars. H.H. the Dalai Lama also sent Jigme Rinpoche a letter praising him for his writing. In the January, 2005, H.H. Drubwang Pema Norbu Rinpoche enthroned Tulku Jigme Rinpoche in Bodhgaya, India . Currently, Jigme Lodro Rinopche is compiling additional historical stories, chronicle treatises, and a text on the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan culture and religion.
