Participants of the first inaugural event of The Association for the Preservation of Ngagyur Kama Tradition included Lamas, Tulkus, Khenpos, Lopens and senior students from all six mother monasteries of the Nyingma traditions of Dorje Drag, Mindroling, Shechen, Dzogchen, Kathok and Palyul. Teaching was given in Tibetan with translation of English and Chinese available on site. In view of the favourable responses, the organising committee has decided the next teaching for the year 2010 will be extended to the length of one month and is set to commence straight after the conclusion of the annual Nyingma Monlam Chenmo. We are happy to reveal here that one of the principal teachers next year will be the Venerable Yangthang Rinpoche who is the incarnation of Terton Dorje Dechen Lingpa of Dhomang Monastery in Tibet and a principle lineage holder of the Nyingmapa Lineage.

Dudjom Rinpoche, a great lama of the Nyingma sect, also regarded as a
reincarnation of Guru Padmasambhava, was brought to the hospital. We
found that he had appendicitis and that an operation was needed to
remove his appendix. But he refused the operation. A devotee of
Rinpoche's asked me to convince him that the operation was necessary
to save him from the pain. I explained everything about appendicitis
to Rinpoche but he did not agree to the operation. Instead he asked me
to call another Rinpoche, Yangthang Rinpoche. Yangthang is a village
in West Sikkim. Dudjom Rinpoche's devotees rushed to find Yangthang
Rinpoche and upon his arrival Yangthang Rinpoche started doing some
type of puja. He chanted mantras moving his hand as if throwing
something on Dudjom Rinpoche's body. This process was repeated for
three days and Dudjom Rinpoche was healed. From the medical point of
view this is very hard to explain. Sikkim is full of such miracles.


At the time of the rebirth of Tertön Dorje Dechen Lingpa, from all
directions the sky in Sikkim resounded in thunder, "I am here!"
Sogtrul Rinpoche, his principal student and lineage holder, was
already awaiting him, as the place of his rebirth had been predicted
both by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche and by His Holiness Reting
Rinpoche, the Senior Tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. By the time Sogtrul Rinpoche reached him he had already declared himself to be the rebirth of the tertön from Dhomang. He had become known as Yangthang Tulku, as he is from the Yangthang clan in Sikkim.

In addition to mastering the extensive training in practices of his
lineage, Yangthang Rinpoche was completely trained in the Kangyur and Tangyur, and in the works of Longchenpa. He was widely recognized for the quality and depth of his realization, the power of his attainment, and the purity of his transmissions. Rinpoche is known as a compassionate, humble, no-nonsense Dzogchen master of the Nyingma, Old School Tradition.

In 1959, when the communist chinese invaded Tibet, Yangthang Rinpoche fled Dhomang. He was later captured by the chinese, and imprisoned for 22 years. He helped many fellow prisoners who could not bear the hardship to die peacefully by performing Phowa, transferring their consciousness to Pure Lands. Though he witnessed and experienced much torture, he bears no resentment to his captors, only compassion. In fact, he became a spiritual advisor to some of the guards. When people express sympathy about his imprisonment, Rinpoche says that because of Dharma, his mind was more free in prison than worldly people experience in the best of circumstances.

Following the death of mao tse tung he was released. He returned to Dhomang to find his monastery completely dismantled. He then obtained permission to go to Sikkim. As a simple yogi he traveled back and forth to Nepal and Bhutan, receiving transmissions and empowerments from His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and His Holiness Dodrubchen

In recent times he has come to the United States several times and
also travels to Taiwan where he has many devoted students. As he is now around 80 years old, this is a rare and precious opportunity to receive blessings and teachings from one of the few remaining great masters of his generation.
