Dzogchen Ponlop Namkha Chokyi Gyatso
The third Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche (1806-1821?), served Dzogchen Monastery as abbot, and trained in the study and practice of the buddhadharma. He received teachings and transmissions at a young age (approximately seven years old), including the Nyingthik lineage from Dodrupchen, along with Dzogchen Rinpoche, Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje and many other masters. The third Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche dedicated the remainder of his life to extending the life of Do Khyentse, and entered into parinirvana at a young age.
