Subject: [CASonline] The Great Palyul Khenpo --

                   Khenpo Tsering Dorje

"I have great confidence that Khenpo Tsering Dorje will benefit many beings as a spiritual guide and teacher. Therefore i request all concerned to revere him as a religious master and assure that anyone who have dharmic connection to Khenpo will be benefited in this and the life after."
-- Kyabje Drubwang Penor Rinpoche
( Supreme Head Emeritus of the Nyingma Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism ) 
Khenpo Tsering Dorje's Seat in front of the Throne of
Kyabje Penor Rinpoche with the assembled hosts of
Nyingma Sangha in Taiwan. 

Demonstrating great compassion towards all living creatures since birth, steadfastly refusing to harm even an insect, Khenpo Tsering Dorje was sent by His mother to the late Dudjom Rinpoche for Buddhist training and ordination.


Before Dudjom Rinpoche was about to leave for France, He sent Khenpo to Penor Rinpoche in south India for further studies. Dudjom Rinpoche prophesied that Khenpo will bring great benefit to innumerable beings in the future. 


During Khenpo's studies in Namdroling, Khenpo topped His standard annually. In His 18 years with Kyabje Penor Rinpoche, Khenpo completely received all the Nyingma initiations and transmissions.


Khenpo has also debated and given discourses in the presence of HH the Dalai Lama who expressed His approval and happiness.


Khenpo Tserng Dorje is, in fact, the seniormost Khenpo who is the first batch of student to graduate from the main seat of the Nyingma Palyul Lineage in-exile, the Namdroling Monastery, in India.  


Khenpo was subsequently invited by the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche to His main seat in-exile, Shechen Monastery, to teach, where He taught for 4 years to Khyentse Rinpoche's students. Khyentse Rinpoche showed His approval and delight for Khenpo's teachings which He felt brought great benefit to His students and the monastery.


After His teaching at Khyentse Rinpoche's monastery, Khenpo was requested by Kyabje Penor Rinpoche to return to Tibet's mother monastery of Palyul to teach. For 3 years, true to the prophesies of the great Masters, Khenpo has been able to bring the Dharma to the many thousands of ordained Sangha and laity in Tibet.


Whilst in Tibet, Khenpo received some of the most sacred and precious transmissions from Khenpo Achuk Rinpoche. In front of all the ten thousand Sangha members of His monastery, Khenpo Achuk Rinpoche expressed His rejoicings in the great qualities of Khenpo Tsering Dorje and declared that Khenpo will bring countless benefit to the Dharma and all sentient beings.


Considered fully accomplished, attaining complete inseparability with Guru Padmasambhava Himself, Khenpo Achuk Rinpoche, with Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok ( one of HH the Dalai Lama's Nyingma Teacher ), is known as Tibet's 'sun and moon'.


Khenpo Tsering Dorje is the repository of countless of Tibet's Dharmic treasures, having received them from the greatest luminaries of this century including HH the Dalai Lama, the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, the present Sakya Trizin, Kyabje Penor Rinpoche, the late Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok, Do Drupchen Rinpoche and other such realized Masters.


Whilst a pillar and master of the Nyingma tradition, Khenpo is also a beacon of the 'Ri-May' or Non-Sectarian movement. He consistently, not least of all, through His personal example, taught His students to offer nothing but the highest devotion and respect to teachings of all lineages as they are all equal in taste ­ the taste of Liberation, all the holy Dharma taught by the Buddha.


Being from Pema Kod, Arunachal Pradesh, India, the same region where Dudjom Rinpoche was born, Khenpo Tsering Dorje has brought the precious Dharma into some of the remotest corners of India and has built retreat centers, clinics and schools for many of the poorest communities of people there.


HH the Dalai Lama and Kyabje Drubwang Penor Rinpoche have both graced Khenpo Tsering Dorje's monastery in the far-flung region of India ( via helicopters !! ) with Their holy presence and have both given their complete blessings and expressed Their great happiness at Khenpo's wide-reaching activities for the holy Dharma.
