About H.E. Garchen Rinpoche
Born in Nangchen, Kham, in 1937, Garchen Rinpoche was enthroned at the age of 7 by Drikung Kabyong Rinpoche as the 8th Kyabje Garchen Triptrul Rinpoche. During the turmoil of the Chinese invasion of Tibet Garchen Rinpoche left his three year retreat to aid the Khampa rebels. He was subsequently imprisoned and for over 20 years faced great hardship in a Communist prison camp. Practicing in secret, Garchen Rinpoche attained realization. Today Garchen Rinpoche maintains an extensive series of Dharma centers throughout the world as well as his original monastery in Kham. He is known worldwide for his boundless compassion and for his clear, pure transmission of the Great Seal of Mahamudra.

All proceeds from the movie and teachings will be used to create the Drikung Seattle Dharma center!
