Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche was born as the eldest daughter of Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen Gyurme Künzang Wangyal, the 11th Mindrolling throne holder of the renowned Mindrolling lineage.
Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche began receiving teachings and transmissions from a very young age from some of the most revered Tibetan masters of our age such as Kyabje Mindrolling Trichen, Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche, Kyabje Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, Kyabje Tulku Ugyen Rinpoche and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche.
Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche has been teaching internationally for nearly two decades. Rinpoche has been teaching extensively in North America, Europe and Asia since 1992. In 1993 Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche established the Samten Tse Retreat Center in Mussoorie, India. Samten Tse is the result of Rinpoche’s vision of a place of study and retreat for both monastics and Western lay practitioners where students from the East and West can live together harmoniously in a spiritual community and practice in implementing the teachings of buddhadharma in daily life.
Despite the fact I only met Rinpoche a few times, I feel very drawn to her and her teaching. She is a great source of inspiration and a powerful teacher.
