young khachab rinpoche a terton?

Post by Adamantine » Sun Sep 04, 2011 6:00 am

I am just interested in details of this statement from the website: "Younge Khachab Rinpoche is the Younge family lineage holder, a treasure-revealer, and a true non-sectarian scholar and Dzogchen yogi."

If he is a terton, has he been teaching, giving wangs for, or in any way propagating his terma? All the wangs I've seen advertised with him have been from prior termas, so I am wondering more about what his terma is and if he transmits it.

Detachment is the final happiness. ~Sri Saraha

Tulku Thondup's book explains why many terma are private or for a few or have to wait.

Dzogchen masters I know say: 1)Buddhist religion essence is Dzogchen 2)Religions are positive by intent/fruit 3)Any method's OK unless: breaking Dzogchen vows, mixed as syncretic (Milanese Soup) 4)Don't join mandalas of opponents of Dalai Lama/Padmasambhava: False Deity inventors by encouraging victims 5)Don't debate Ati with others 6)Don't discuss Ati practices online 7) A master told his old disciple: no one's to discuss his teaching with some others on a former forum nor mention him. Publicity's OK, questions are asked from masters/set teachers in person/email/non-public forums~Best wishes

After stumbling upon a youtube video of Khachab Rinpoche, I have also become interested in this question. There is indeed an old link on his facebook page for an empowerment for practices from his own terma. Does anyone have further information about his terma? Perhaps one of his students? Compared to other Dzogchen teachers in the United States, there seems to be a dearth of information on the internet about Khachab Rinpoche.

I translated for him once. Caveat emptor.

Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

The four means of converting beings to the Dharma are generosity (which itself as four aspects: giving material gifts, conferring fearlessness, loving kindness and teaching Dharma), pleasant speech, conduct and setting an example.
