LAMA GENDUN RINPOCHE
Who was Gendun Rinpoche ?
Lama Gendun Rinpoche was the meditation master and the spiritual leader of the four Dhagpos. He spent over thirty years of his life in solitary retreat in Tibet and India. Lama Gendun Rinpoche was one of the last great masters of the old generation of Tibetan Lamas. Everything he taught, had been experienced first hand during his numerous retreats in caves in the Himalayas and in India. He represented the quintessence of the fully realized yogi and the perfectly pure monk.
Receiving teachings from a master who has reached his degree of accomplishment is akin to receiving a very rare and priceless jewel. The reason behind the creation of Dhagpo Kundreul Ling, along with its retreat centers, monastery, and temple, is to ensure that the transmission of these precious teachings is continued so that they will not be lost, but will grow and spread. When the Gyalwa Karmapa sent Gendun Rinpoche to Europe to guide all those who so wished along the path to inner discovery, he once said, “In the person of Lama Gendun Rinpoche, I am giving you a pure jewel”.
