Rigdzin Rinchen Dorje
Rinchen Dorje has been following the Buddhist path since age twelve, when he decided to do his first retreat. Since then, he has received numerous teachings and initiations from over twenty masters from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He has followed a gradual path, starting from the Sutras, through to Mahamudra, Vajrayana, and Dzogchen.
In 2004, he received the ngakpa vows, and has been focusing on tantric practices and the Dudjom Tersar lineage ever since, first under the close guidance of Lopon Ogyan Tanzin Rinpoche and now as a heart disciple of his root lama Rigdzin Namkha Gyatso Rinpoche.
Rinchen Dorje combines a thorough knowledge of the Buddhist path with a deep experience of the practice, having attended a 5-year Masters program in Buddhist Studies, spent more than a year and a half in closed retreat and thousands of hours sitting in practice.
He is the president of the french branch of the association, Rigdzin Drolo Ling, and the resident teacher there.
