ontul rinpoche

Lho Ontul Rinpoche is a master of both the Drikung Kagyu and Nyingma lineages. The Drikung Kyabgon H. H. Chetsang Rinpoche recognized Ontul Rinpoche to be the emanation of Drog Ban Khiu Chung Lotsawa, one of the twenty-five main disciples of Guru Rinpoche. In a previous incarnation, Rinpoche was the older brother and one of the primary disciples of the great Drikung Treasure Revealer Orgyen Nuden Dorje, thus receiving the name "Ontul", meaning "older brother". In 1959 Rinpoche fled the Chinese Communist occupation of Tibet to India. In India the Drikung Khandro Nini Rinpoche cared for and taught Ontul Rinpoche as well as introducing Rinpoche to his root lama, Ven. Khenpo Thubten, a great Nyingmapa teacher, from whom Rinpoche  received extensive instruction on the Longchen Nyingthig. Rinpoche also received Mahamudra and Dzogchen teachings from Dudjom Rinpoche, Khunu Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, 3rd Kalu Rinpoche, Yogi Khyunga Rinpoche and others. Ontul Rinpoche received the Yangzab treasure teachings from H.E. Chöje Togden Rinpoche, the 8th Garchen Rinpoche, and Khenpo Konchog Ngedon. With the blessing of H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, Ontul Rinpoche travels the world transmitting the Drikung Dzogchen treasure teachings. Rinpoche is known for his warmth, humor, penetrating wisdom, and vast bodhicitta.
