Dodrupchen Rinpoche Declines Supreme Head Post

Following conclusion of the annual Nyingma Monlam, representatives from six major lineages of the Nyingma School, seen here, traveled to Sikkim to meet with the great source of refuge, Kyabje Dodrupchen Rinpoche.

The purpose of their journey was to request Rinpoche to serve as Supreme Head of the Nyingma School.

Dodrupchen Rinpoche firmly declined their request, citing health issues and advanced age. Rinpoche also counseled the representatives to always maintain harmony and unity among Nyingmapa, calling this "essential" to preservation of the Dharma.

As the meeting ended, Rinpoche presented the representatives with gifts of rupas to take back to their respective monasteries.

Congrats to Kyabjé Dodrupchen Rinpoche, the Fourth Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Tubten Trinlé Pal Zangpo!

May all your dharma aspirations be perfectly fulfilled!

We hope that Kyabjé Dodrupchen Rinpoche will bestow the Dzogchen empowerments in the US one day!

Lama Khyeno!
If your holiness did accept,
it would have boosted our ego indeed
but out of your great compassion for us, your unworthy fans, you declined
and tamed our ego once again!
