Décès de Jampa Rinpoche le 22 mars 2011

Jampa Rinpoche (1993)

Born in Tawo, Kham, in eastern Tibet in 1936, Jampa Rinpoche was recognized at the age of three as the reincarnation of the great practitioner and physician-adept Gonpo Rinchen. Jampa Rinpoche was a very close disciple of Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, senior tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and participated in finding the reincarnation of Ling Rinpoche.
During his training Rinpoche received teachings from all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, including many rare transmissions and empowerments and special healing and divination practices. In 1959 he followed His Holiness the Dalai Lama into exile in India, where he completed his studies in Buddhism and in 1978 received his Geshe degree from Drepung Loseling Monastery in south India.
