Chatral Rinpoche (1913-2015)

Kyabjé Chatral Rinpoche, Sangye Dorje (Tib. བྱ་བྲལ་སངས་རྒྱས་རྡོ་རྗེ་, Wyl.bya bral sangs rgyas rdo rje) (1913–2015) was a renowned Dzogchenmaster, a reclusive yogin famous for his great realization and strict discipline. A disciple of the great master Khenpo Ngakchung, he was widely regarded as one of the most highly realized Dzogchen yogins of recent times. In addition to his relationship with Khenpo Ngakchung, Chatral Rinpoche also studied with some of the last century's most renowned masters, including Dudjom Rinpoche,Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, and the famed dakiniSera Khandro. Rinpoche was one of the primary lineage holders of theLongchen Nyingtik, and in particular the lineage that descends through Jigme Lingpa's heart son Jikmé Gyalwé Nyugu and then on to Patrul Rinpoche.  (reprinted from Rigpa wiki)
