My Guru - H.H. Kyabgon Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche

H. H. Taklung Kyabgon Tsetrul Thupten Gyaltsen Rinpoche, born in year 1926, is the Dharma King of Nyingma Northern Termas Lineage of the Dorje Drak Monastery, one of the six main Nyingma Monasteries, founded in 1610 by Rigdzin Ngakgi (Aji) Wangpo (1580-1639).

This monastery specialized in the Changter or Jangter tradition of Rigdzin Godem (1337-1408). Rigdzin Godem was the master of the "Northern Terma tradition of the Nyingma school. Rigdzin Godem literally means "the Vidyadhara with the vulture feather."

He received this name because three vulture feathers grew from his head when he was twelve years old, and five more when he was twenty-four. A reincarnation of Dorje Dudjom of Nanam, one of the nine close Tibetan disciples of Guru Padmasambhava, he is also counted among the five king-like tertons and one of the three nirmanakays of Guru Padmasambhava.

H.H. Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche is one of the few living lamas, who has received the traditional education and training in Tibet, and nowadays he is the Master of many tulkus such as of Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche (1993-), Düdjom Yangsi Rinpoche (1990-) and of others.

He is often invited to teach and give transmissions in the most important Dharma Centers in India, Nepal and Bhutan. Many practitioners from various schools come to receive his transmission, since he is considered to be the Master of Rime, whose realization, wisdom and spiritual qualifications transcend the limitation of the diverse schools and their differences.
