thanks everyone for the various input.

@Simon- any to add from your side?

@pema tsultrim- where is NM?

Lopon Tenzin Namdak, Dodrubchen Rinpoche, Thrangu Rinpoche - where are they mainly located these days?
Looks like Thrangu Rinpoche is in Nepal at present; he is scheduled to teach at Thrangu Monastery in Vancouver, BC, in July 2020. https://thrangumonastery.org/2019/11/su ... ents-2020/

That’s good to hear. I believe he cancelled a lot of his schedule last year, so he is obviously stronger..

I would add Ato Rinpoche in Cambridge U.K. still active. Now well into his 80’s.
Simon, Chime R was my first teacher (refuge, Karma Kamtsang ngondro and...) and Ato R has also been a very important teacher for me. Do you know if we have ever met?
All the best

Quite likely Lingpupa. I went to Chime R’s teaching at the old Marpa House and the London Centre in the Iron Works..I received teachings from Ato R at his house in Cambridge. I was not a formal student of either. I was still nominally a student of CTR although I had distanced myself from the shenanigans.
Chime R as you will know, escaped from Tibet in the same party that included CTR.

Sorry, NM = New Mexico in the South West U.S. BTR lives in Albuquerque, NM now. Has a beautiful 50 ft. stupa in the Zuni mountains, and HH Dudjom Yangsi SPZ recently consecrated a Sampa Lhundrupma Statue/Temple that BTR constructed out there as well.

Hi Guys

My master Rigdzin Shikpo is still up and about teaching. He was taught by many of the greats, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Dudjom Rinpoche and and recognised by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche.

He's teachings are imbued with Maha Ati or Dzogchen.
We have a youtube site and website all easy enough to find.

His wife Lama Shenpen is still teaching too I believe. She has the same pedigree. See The Awakened Heart Sangha.

His pedigree is excellent. It’s possible he is a “master”. But I’d be both pleased and surprised if he was in the same league as the other teachers mentioned here.

If he is that’s definitely a cause for celebration.

I read his book Never Turn Away and thought it was quite good. Always been curious what his actual presentation of teachings is like.

Well he certainly has his own style... :smile: very trenchant and vigorous.
His wife Lama Shenpen by contrast, is the soul of gentleness.

Yongdzin Tenzin Namdak is usually at his gomba near Swayambhu. Last I was there, he was available for short visits during certain hours, if you have met him before.
