Dung-sé Thrin-lé Norbu Rinpoche is the eldest son of Kyabjé Düd’jom Rinpoche Jig’drèl Yeshé Dorje, the first Supreme Head of the Nyingma Tradition in exile. He is a Holder of the Düd’jom gTér and the incarnation of Dri’mèd ’ö-Zér, one of seven sons of Düd’jom Lingpa (sGas gTer bDud ’joms gLing-pa Khrag ’thung Nus lDan rDorje, 1835-1904). He is the great Siddha-scholar of the Nyingma Tradition, and a pre-eminent vajra master of the Nyingma lineage.
In his formative years in Tibet he studied and practised at Mindroling. Since escaping from Tibet and coming to live in the West he has written the most outstanding books on Dharma to appear in English. His books are essential references for every practitioner of the Nyingma Tradition, particularly in the West – where the direct teachings of Lineage Lamas have never been so readily accessible. Dung-sé Thrin-lé Norbu Rinpoche’s facility with the English language is both unique and brilliant in its dynamic clarity. Amongst his available published works are books such as: Magic Dance – the Display of the Self-nature of the Five Wisdom Dakinis; The Small Golden Key; Practice of the Essence of the Sublime Heart Jewel – the Propitious Speech from the Beginning, Middle and End; White Sail – Crossing the Waves of Ocean Mind to the Serene Continent of the Triple Gems; and Welcoming Flowers from across the Cleansed Threshold of Hope.
