Venerable Younge Khachab Rinpoche

Younge Khachab Rinpoche is a highly accomplished Dzogchen master and non-sectarian, or Rime scholar. He was educated at Ganden Jangtse Monastery where he received his Geshe degree. He was also appointed as the Khenpo of the Kagyu Monastery Thagten Nyingje Ling in Nepal where he taught for several years. He has studied widely with the top masters in the Kagyu, Nyingma, Gelug, Sakya and Bon traditions.

Seventh in the line of Khachab reincarnations, he is a direct descendent of the famed terton, Yongey Mingyur Dorje, and holds the family lineage for this cycle of termas. His family has been closely associated with the Karmapas since the 17th century.

Rinpoche's style of teaching is direct, warm and engaging, extensive yet practical. He is accessible and takes a personal interest in his students' progress. Rinpoche currently makes his home in the United States.

Younge Khachab Rinpoche Long Life Supplications

Doing the long life supplication extends Rinpoche's life and also helps the student to become deeply connected with Rinopoche. One would visualize Rinpoche on a lotus on top of one's head with light radiating from his heart center and then do the Supplication.
