Overview

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991) was one of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist teachers of the 20th century. While a practitioner in the Nyingma lineage, he held empowerments and teachings from many traditions and was a strong supporter of the Rimey non-sectarian movement. This Rimey Lama Chopa is a liturgical guruyoga text encompassing all stages of the Path to Enlightenment, with special emphasis on the Eight Chariots Rimey lineages. Lama Chopa is one of the central esoteric practices of Vajrayana Buddhism; and as such, this text is a unique and powerful contribution to world spiritual literature. On the centennary of Dilgo Khyentse's birth, a great celebration was held in Nepal, for which a locally-printed English edition of his well-known Rimey Lama Chopa was commissioned. The limited English edition was created by Glenn Mullin, a well-known Canadian Buddhist translator with many books to his credit. We are fortunate to have received permission from Mr. Mullin to create this new edition. In addition, we are fortunate to have the participation of Dilgo Khyentse's chief western disciple, the Venerable Matthieu Ricard, who has written an insightful foreword for the book and provided personal photographs of Rinpoche for this edition. 50% of profits from sales of this book will go to benefit charitable activities of Rinpoche's Karuna-Shechen Foundation in the Himalayas.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was someone whose inner journey led him to an extraordinary depth of knowledge and enabled him to be, for whoever met him, a fountain of loving kindness, wisdom and compassion. To achieve these extraordinary qualities, Khyentse Rinpoche spent more than twenty years in retreat, in remote hermitages and caves. After and in between his retreats, Khyentse Rinpoche worked constantly for the benefit of all living beings with tireless energy. He became one of the main teachers of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, of the Royal Family of Bhutan, and of countless disciples. He was thus a master among masters. While his personal practice was centered upon the Nyingma tradition, he was deeply committed to receive, preserve and transmit the teachings from all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He was not just paying lip service, but was deeply concerned by the need to prevent rare transmissions from becoming extinct and greatly saddened when realizing that the lineage for the transmission of certain texts and empowerments was about to vanish. His knowledge of the enormous range of Tibetan Buddhist literature was probably unparalleled, and he inherited Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo’s determination to preserve and make available texts of all traditions, particularly those in danger of disappearing.

Glenn H. Mullin (Maitri Zopa) is a Canadian Buddhist translator and teacher with more than twenty-five books to his credit. His special area of interest is the history of the Dalai Lamas, but he is well known for his deep knowledge of all aspects of Vajrayana Buddhist theory, practice and culture. He was also a personal student of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. Mr. Mullin currently resides in Mongolia.
