===Short Biography===
 
'''11th Drukpa Tendzin Khyenrab Gelek Palzangpo'''་ (1931-1960), was born in [[Lhasa]] and was recognized by many of his gurus according to their predictions. He took the exalted yogi Trukshik [[Tripon Pema Chogyal]] Rinpoche, as his root guru. Under the guru's direction, Tenzin Khyenrab Gelek Palsangpo achieved great understanding and was authoritative in both the theory and practice of the [[sutras]] and tantras, and his wisdom blossomed immeasurably. He received numerous [[Dzogchen]] instructions and empowerments from [[Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro]] Rinpoche, and spent most of his life in strict retreat practicing meditation according to both the [[Nyingma]] and [[Sarma]] tantric traditions of Tibet.
 
 
 
During the Cultural Revolution in 1959, Tenzin Khenrab Gelek Palsangpo along with [[Drukpa Thuksey Rinpoche]], [[Apho Yeshe Rangdrol Rinpoche]] and followers, left for India. They were only able to take with them some very valuable and sacred items from the monastery. Unfortunately, this enlightened master died soon thereafter in a refugee camp at Buxa, West Bengal, near the Bhutanese border in the year 1960, at age 29. Before passing away, he sat for days absorbed in deep meditation without eating, drinking or sleeping. He then promised [[Drukpa Thuksey Rinpoche]], that he would reappear in this world and continue serving the Dharma and sentient beings.
 
 
 
"I will definitely take rebirth in India" Tenzin Khenrab Gelek Palsangpo said before passing away. Those were his last words.

Mingyur Rinpoche said at a teaching in the lhakang in ka-nying shedrup ling gompa in nepal, that to visualize better be replaced by to imagine. I think visualization in itself is somewhat misleading for a beginner practitioner (like myself), although it might at first, to a native american english speaker, sound slightly off, I would suggest using something like 'place clearly' (in the space in front). It is something we do mentally, not with our eyes, and to visualize sth, makes me focus on my visual faculty.
