Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
Born in 1975 in Nepal, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche is a rising star among the new generation of Tibetan Buddhist masters trained outside of Tibet. He is a highly venerated teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu lineage who was recognized as a tulku by both the 16th Karmapa and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. At the unusually young age of 13, Rinpoche entered a traditional three-year retreat and at age 17 was asked by Tai Situ Rinpoche to undertake a second three-year retreat and serve as its retreat master. At age 20, Situ Rinpoche asked Mingyur Rinpoche to oversee and teach at a new monastic university at Sherab Ling Monastery in India. His youthful appearance and young age belies his vast knowledge and wisdom of the buddha dharma. Rinpoche has one-pointedly devoted his entire life to the study, practice and teaching of the dharma and he has accomplished tremendous benefit for beings in this lifetime. He teaches actively in the West and is known for his remarkable ability to convey the Buddhist teachings in a clear and skillful manner. Learn more about Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche at www.mingyur.org.
