Kyabje Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche was educated at the esteemed Mindrolling Monastery in Tibet for nine years, as well as studying and practicing extensively over many years with his father, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche II Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, and with many great lamas of his era, including Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kyabje Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Rinpoche, Kyabje Dodrupchen Rinpoche, and Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche. Thinley Norbu Rinpoche was highly revered for holding the extraordinary wisdom qualities of a great saint as well as being an accomplished Buddhist scholar, while humbly living a quiet and simple life and continuously imparting precious teachings with an emphasis on view and meditation. With matchless skillfulness, depth, and brilliance, Rinpoche generously and compassionately taught in the West and the East for his entire life, according to Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche’s instructions, leaving an extraordinary legacy of writings in both Tibetan and English.
