Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche
Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, founder and spiritual guide of the Mindrolling Lotus Garden in Virginia, is the daughter of Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen.
Born into the Mindrolling lineage, which throughout its history has had many accomplished female masters, Rinpoche was recognized at the age of two by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa as the re-incarnation of the Great Dakini of Tsurphu, Khandro Ugyen Tsomo, who was one of the most renowned female masters of her time. Thus, the present Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche came to hold the lineages of both Nyingma and Kagyu schools. Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche is one of the most renowned Tibetan teachers currently teaching in the West.
