His Eminence Ganden Trisur Rizong Rinpoche

Born in Ladakh, India in the late 1920s, Rinpoche was recognized and enthroned as a child as the reincarnation of the founder of the illustrious Rizong Hermitage.

 
In the mid-1940s Rinpoche joined Drepung Loseling Monastery in Lhasa for his higher training, remaining until the Chinese takeover of Tibet in 1959. He then joined His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan exile community in India. He was appointed by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama as Abbot both of Gyumed Tantric Monastery and of Drepung Loseling, two of the greatest seats of Tibetan spiritual knowledge. Rinpoche became the 102nd Ganden Tripa, the highest spiritual positions in the Gelug Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
 
Rinpoche had made the practice of meditation his principal focus in life, and has conducted numerous extensive retreats, including a three-year tantric retreat on the Yamantaka mandala in a remote hermitage in Ladakh. Through his achievements in practice and scholarship, he represented the pinnacle of the Sutra and Tantra traditions.
 
Rinpoche was renowned for his tantric powers, and was frequently called upon by H.H. the Dalai Lama to lead ceremonies for healing and other similar purposes. In past visits to Atlanta, we have had the fortunate and rare opportunity to receive a number of teachings, guidance, and some of the highest tantric empowerments including the Chakrasamvara and Vajrayogini empowerments from Rinpoche. We will be forever grateful to Rinpoche for the teachings and wisdom he had transmitted to so many students around the world.
