Khyentse Yeshi Namkhai - What is his background?

Post by Mr. G » Sun Jul 25, 2010 3:36 pm

Hi all,

I was looking for some background information on Khyentse Yeshi Namkhai. Can someone provide any information regarding meditative retreats he's done in addition to the length of his retreats? The only extensive bio I have of him is found on numerous sites:
Khyentse Yeshi Namkhai, son and student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, was born in Italy in 1970. He received Christian and Buddhist education, studied (philosophy and computer science) and worked in the field of modern technologies. H.H. Sakya Trizin recognized Yeshi Namkhai as the reincarnation of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu's maternal uncle (Khyentse Rinpoche Chökyi Wangchug) and was given the name Jamyang Chökyi Nyima. In 2007 he went to Tibet and accepted his duty to help and support monastery in central Tibet. Recently he has dedicated his life to the future of the Dzogchen Community founded by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, following his teachers instructions and fulfilling students wishes. Yeshi Namkhai's style is open and simple. He promotes fresh and spontaneous interest, talking directly and helps one enter the essence of buddhist teachings and discover one's real nature. During last two years Yeshi Namkhai gave more then 60 talks and teaching sessions in Europe, Russia, USA, South America and Australia.
