Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche
Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, an acknowledged and revered Tibetan Buddhist
master, was born in 1951 in Eastern Tibet. When China invaded Tibet at the
end of the 1950s, Rinpoche left Tibet with his parents for Sikkim where the
family lived for several years before moving to Bir in northern India. For more
than 30 years after his father died in 1973, Rinpoche took care of his Bir
monastery, which became famous for its expertise in elaborate Tibetan
Vajrayana Buddhist rituals.
Rinpoche himself is well known for his incredible memory, his blunt and
direct teaching style, his capacity to make predictions, his depth of knowledge,
particularly on Vajrayana Buddhist practices, rituals and history, and his
mastery of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practices, including the most esoteric.
For many years, Rinpoche was a member of the Tibetan government in exile,
where he developed a reputation for fearless and formidable oratory.
