How do you describe a sublime being like Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, the simile of a diamond and its' different qualities come closest to fulfilling that difficult task. As is stated, "the quality and value of a diamond is judged on five fundamental criteria: Carat, color, clarity, cut, and confidence." Confidence here is having a certificate of value, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, has several of these: A recognized, incarnate Lama, the son of a great Master and a powerful dakini in human form, and a widely experienced Vajra Master in his own right. In these troubled times sincere guidance is needed as a support for the spiritual practitioner disturbed by recent exposes. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche offers a fresh, yet traditional way to enter the teachings, guiding the student on how to choose a qualified teacher, examine oneself, and proceed on the genuine path of practice. Such advice is more than precious, it is timely and necessary to make sure that sidetracks and wrong views do not derail one's practice. His unique quality of clarity is evident in his teachings and conduct, he cuts through all misconceptions and doubts and clearly explains all aspects of practice and ritual with a precision to detail that is almost unequalled by any living master today. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche never waters it down or makes the dharma more palatable for any audience. He clearly tells it like it is, straight and unfiltered with full knowledge that this will not gather disciples or sponsors, which he cares little about. He is someone almost born in the wrong age, a character from the Eastern Tibetan past, an old Kharmapa Lama born anew in the modern world. However, he is able to give the most relevant, current advice, all the while adhering to tradition with scriptural resources. Please, sit back and read these precious teachings and make the aspiration to meet him in this present life, even though when you do, you may be completely scared and afraid, it will be unforgettable experience. I guarantee it. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche is a reincarnation of a Jetson Tulku, a reincarnation of Taksham Nuden Dorje, 'Powerful Tiger-skirted Vajra' born in the late part of the 17th century who was Atsara Sale at the time of Padmasambhava in Tibet. Jetson Tulku was really an accomplished siddha, a fully realized being, and OT Rinpoche is similar to that. Jigmey Kongtrul Rinpoche I am not sure that Western people see samsara as ocean of suffering but you do know that it is not a very satisfying place and that samsara is something to be free from. You go from worldly life to the Dharma, some see that worldly work never ends; some see that worldly work has no benefit, after thinking about this, you can determine the qualities of samsara as well as its faults, and then you come to the Dharma that is really extraordinary. Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche
