  • The fourth Neten Chokling Rinpoche was born in Bhutan and recognized as the forth reincarnation of the great tertön Chogyur Lingpa by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa and His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. He was brought to the Chokling monastery in Bir, India at the age of three. Rinpoche was able to recognize everyone and everything from his previous life. Chogyur Lingpa lived in the early part of the 19th century and was one the most renowned treasure revealers. His termas have been and continue to be practiced widely in both the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Chokling Rinpoche still lives in his monestary in Bir, looking after its well being and caring for the monks. His root teachers are His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. He is known amongst his peers as one of the most humorous, gentle and spacious teachers, indicating the great depth of his inner realization. [RY]
