Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche

His Holiness Kabje Mindrolling Trichen

Renowned as one of the greatest mahasiddhas in recent history and a direct emanation of Padmasambhava, Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche benefitted countless sentient beings through his many activities and led the establishment of the Mindrolling Monastery in India as a premier centre of the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism outside of Tibet.

As was widely known, for many years, Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche had been in poor health. Particularly, in the past six years Kyabje Trichen Rinpoche's health had worsened, yet Kyabje Rinpoche continued to remain in order to benefit beings at the repeated and heartfelt requests of his students, particularly at the requests of Sangyum Kushog, Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, Jetsün Dechen Paldrön, and the entire sangha of Mindrolling.
