Biography of Chimi Dorjee Rinpoche


chime-rpcThe present Chimi Dorjee Rinpoche was born in India in 1984, the Wood Rat year, with many auspicious signs occurring at the time of his birth. He was recognized by H.H the 37th Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche and was officially enthroned in the year 1992 at Jangchubling Monastery as the reincarnation of Siddha Gar Chimi Dorjee who was a great practitioner and an embodiment of the Avalokiteshvara (the Buddha of Compassion).

After the accomplishment of his practice, he went on to conduct many Retreats on the 100 Million Mani Mantra (Mani-Dung-Drub) recitation for the people, demonstrating his loving kindness and compassion towards the welfare of all sentient beings.

After his parinirvana, through his great aspiration, he again took rebirth as Chimi Dorjee in India. His mother is Kunsang Choedon and his father is Jamyang Dakpa. Chimi Dorjee Rinpoche completed his basic monastic education from the Jangchubling Monastery, Dehra Dun, India. Rinpoche received the entire set of empowerments, oral transmission and instruction of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage from H.H Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, H.H Drikung Kyabgon Chungsang Rinpoche, H.E Garchen Rinpoche as well as from many other eminent Rinpoches of Drikung Kagyu Lineage.

He also visited Gar Monastery in Kham, Tibet and studied at the Buddhist Institution, Larong Serta Narig. He returned to India and joined the Zongsar College and studied there for many years. Now Rinpoche has successfully completed the Preliminary Practices of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism under the close guidance of H.H Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche.

Chimi Dorjee Rinpoche has studied extensively and has great interest and aspiration for meditation retreat, continuously applying what he has learnt to his meditation practice. Growing up in this modern era, he expresses openness and interest towards the problems faced by modern day practitioners. This, together with his kind and gentle heart as well as his sharp intelligence, makes him an exceptionally gifted teacher for the modern world.
