The Life Story of Kyabje Dudjom
at the Tibetan Institute for Higher Studies in Sarnath.
Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, Manifested as a householder with family, married twice. His first wife was called Sangyum Kusho Tseten Yudron, and they had altogether six children, including two daughters and four sons.
Their eldest daughter,
Dechen Yudron, is now in Lhasa, Tibet and is taking care of Kyabje Dudjom
Rinpoche's seat Lama Ling in Kongpo. Their eldest son Kyabje Dungsay
Thinley Norbu Rinpohce, who is himself a great Nyingma scholar and master
like his father, is also the father of Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche
III. He is the emanation of Kunkhyen Longchen Rabjam, as well as the
rebirth of Terton Drimed Odser, the eldest son of Dudjom Lingpa. In
his youth, Thinley Norbu Rinpoche studied for nine years at Mindroling
monastery and received many teachings from many great saints throughout
Tibet, besides his own father. He is now in his sixties and is residing
in New York.
Lodro Thaye, who led a life encompassing the activities of one hundred
tertons (treasure revealers), has said that Mopa Od Thaye (Dudjom Rinpoche's
future incarnation as the last Buddha of this Light Aeon) will have
the activity of one thousand Buddhas. That this great being will perform
the activity of all his previous lives and have many disciples is all
due to his own power of Bodhicitta and prayers. As Buddha Shakyamuni,
even though enlightened, performed the illusory activity of dying for
the benefit of worldly beings, likewise Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche entered
into Mahaparinirvana on January 17, 1987.
