Few Remember

H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche passed away in 1987, followed by Dilgo Khyentse, in 1991. Here is a photograph of H.H. Mindrolling Trichen, who is the actual Supreme Head of the Nyingmapa Sect, following the agreement of 1962 between H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, and H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. H.H. Penor Rinpoche, who most assume to be Supreme Head of the sect is actually the head of the Palyul lineage. Penor Rinpoche nominally succeeded Dilgo Khyentse as head of the sect in 1992, but resigned in 2003. To his credit, H.H. Mindrolling Trichen has never cared much for sectarian politics.
