Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche
HH Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche was the foremost teacher resident in modern Tibet. A brilliant scholar and eloquent speaker, he regularly addressed gatherings of monks, nuns and lay people numbering in the thousands. He founded the great university centre of Larung Gar, which attraced over 15,000 students, drawn there by his greatness. He was a reincarnation of the great master Tertön Sogyal, and discovered Terma treasures in this lifetime as well. His recent passing is a great loss to Buddhism in Tibet.
