Description

His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche
His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche was imprisoned during the Communist occupation in Tibet for 20 years in the prime of his life. There, he met his guru Khenpo Munsel and secretly practiced. After his release, Rinpoche spread the teachings of dharma to all corners of the world, sharing his radiance and inspiring all with his example of how one can overcome obstacles and great hardship with love and compassion.
