Nyala Rinpoche Rigdzin Changchub Dorje

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Thu May 24, 2012 7:13 pm

Wiki has the death dates of Nyala Rinpoche Rigdzin Changchub Dorje as 1961/1978 - which is correct?

Also is there an online image, photo or tanka of this bodhisattva? Have not found one yet.

Thanks Sunny, I hope a photograph will turn up also.

I wonder if two of the others are relatives, with the similar dour downturned mouth? The one to his right looks like a brother and the back row, center, another one.

Still hope we at Dharma Wheel have enough merit to see a photo of his bodhisattva lama.

I think the monk sitting down is his uncle Khyentse? In My Reincarnation I think that was the same photograh Yeshe was looking at when the filmmaker asked if that was his reincarnation. ChNN never took the Bhiksu vows anyway. Elsewhere he mentions that Khyentse was quite fat though.

To Rinpoche's right is his brother and I think the elderly woman in the back is his grandmother.
She was awesome and a close student of Adzom Drukpa.

I found . They don't have a pic of Changchub Dorje either, just a statue of him, but his granddaughter is there.

By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

Tashi delek,

Nyala Rinpoche Rigdzin Changchub Dorje (1826-1961/1978) has a Dzogchen Lineage whereof ChNN is the actual Rigdzin.

I read that also Shardza Tashi Gyaltsen (1859-1935) was a Dzogchen Teacher of Nyala Rinpoche as well Adzom Drugpa (1842-1924), Nyala Pema Dündul (1816-1872), his student Nyala Terton Rangrig Dorje.

Would be interesting to know more about this Dzogchen Lineage like:

- The name of that Lineage
- Their Dzogchen Cycle of Teachings.
- Masters and Teachings
- In how far all Masters who did teached Nyala Rinpoche, are involved in the Lineage Teachings
