Thrangu Rinpoche

Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche (Wyl. khra ‘gu rin po che) was born in Kham, Tibet in 1933. At the age of four he was formally recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Karmapa and Eleventh Tai Situpa as the ninth incarnation of the great Thrangu tulku, the abbot of Thrangu Monastery, whose root incarnation was Shüpu Palgyi Sengé, one of the twenty-five disciples of Guru Rinpoche. He began his formal studies at the age of seven and received full ordination at the age of twenty-three from the Sixteenth Karmapa. Following this, Thrangu Rinpoche engaged in a period of intense practice and retreat and received further teachings from one of his root teachers, Khenpo Gangshar.

He is also the author of the widely studied The Practice of Tranquillity and Insight, a commentary on the eighth chapter of Jamgön Kongtrul’s Treasury of Knowledge, on shamatha and vipashyana.
