Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche -4

By Matthieu Ricard on September 19, 2011

Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche was chiefly a master of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism but, like Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, he was a perfect example of a non-sectarian teacher. On these photographs he can be seen wearing the hats of the four main lineages of Tibetan Buddhism: Nyingma, Kagyu, Sakya and Geluk. These images were taken during the transmission of the Treasury of Precious Instructions (Dam-gnak Dzö), at Shechen monastery, in 2003.

The ceremonies are continuing at Sitapala, now focused on the Dakini Tröma Nagmo (according to the spiritual treasure, terma, revealed by Nyang Ral Nyima Özer). During the Parinirvana of a great master, his mind dissolves in the absolute dimension of Buddhahood, the dharmakaya.
