My friend Khenpo Rigzin Wangchuk from the Orgyen Choling Monastery in Bhutan.

Khenpo Rigizin Wangchuk changed my life when I met him in California almost 7 years ago. I remember being transfixed as he would ask me about spirituality in American culture (John Coltrane and Jerry Garcia). I would ask him about the life of a Tibetan Buddhist scholar. We went to the Deyoung Museum for the Asian exhibit in San Francisco and I hung on his every word as we walked up and down the aisles experiencing the sacred works of the Eastern cultures. ‪#‎Namaste‬

Chine Lhundrup Rinpoche and Khenpo Rigizn Wangchuk Nyingtik lineage Master:

 

H.H Polo Khenchen received both mother and child text of Nyingthing from Khechen Ngaga (Khechen Ngagi Wangpo or Khenpo Nagwang Pelzang) and then passed down to Chene Lhundrup Rinpoche. Chene Lhundrup also received this same lineage from his second root Master Geshe Pema Thinley.

Khenpo Rigizin Wangchuk received the four major texts of Nyingtik transmission, teaching and empowerment from H.H Penor Rinpoche, H.E Lama Serpo Rinoche and from Chine Lhundrup Rinpoche.

 

This brief note on the Nyingtik Yabshyi was composed by Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche to mark HH Drubwang Penor Rinpocheʼs granting of the Nyingtik Yabshyi empowerments at the request of Sogyal Rinpoche and Rigpa at Lerab Ling in July 1995.

The Dzogchen teachings of Mengakde are also differentiated according to whether they belong to the ʻShé Gyüʼ orʻNyen Gyü, ʼ the explanatory Tantras or oral transmission. It is sometimes said that the Shé Gyü mainly contains the instructions for enlightenment in this lifetime and the Nyen Gyü for enlightenment in the intermediate state. Another way in which this is explained is that the Outer, Inner and Secret cycles are Nyen Gyü, and the Innermost Secret Cycle belongs to Shé Gyü. The special fruition of the practice of the Innermost Secret Cycle, the Nyingtik teachings, is to attain the ʻrainbow body through the perfection of the practice of Trekcho, the physical body can be dissolved completely at death into particles, while through the Togal practice, it is dissolved into a body of light or rainbow body. There are two kinds of rainbow body: the general rainbow body, where the body dissolves completely into light, and the ʻRainbow Body of the Great Transferences, Jalu Phowa Chenpo, where the ordinary body is transformed into a rainbow-like body and the individual lives for centuries for as long as they can benefit beings, appearing to them from time to time. Such was the case with both Vimalamitra and Guru Rinpoche.
