Aro Yeshé

Ngak’chang Drüpchen Aro Yeshé

Ngak’chang Drüpchen Aro Yeshé (sNgags chang grub chen A ro ye shes) wears his hair in a top knot on the top of his head in the thor-tshug (thor tshugs) style. This style was common with togdens (rTogs lDan – realised yogis) who allowed their uncut hair to become matted. Aro Yeshé’s hair was not matted however. He combed it on the instruction of Khyungchen Aro Lingma. She left him the advice that he should distribute his combed out hair as blessings to those who required physical signs.
