Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche is a spiritual Master with German and Indian ancestors, living in Germany as well as in Nepal. The details mentioned below are presented in this way for the first time, since the quest which was going on for more then 3 decades has been completed only recently.
Since the early beginning of his meeting with Tibetan Buddhism he was mainly interested in spiritual exercise systems, such as the Yoga practices of the Tibetans and the historical figure of Vairocana, a translator of the 7th century.
In his quest to pursue the lineage of Vairocana he went through training with Lamas of the Kagyu and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He received a traditional training according to these schools, receiving all the necessary transmissions, and deepened his knowledge through intensive studies and many years of meditation according to these practice lineages.
It is known that there is a close connection between Vairocana the translator of the 7th century and Dorje Lingpa of the 11th century, since he is considered as reincarnation of Vairocana himself. Due to his research about Vairocana Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche went to Bhutan in the year 2003, where he was enthroned as an incarnation of a disciple of Dorje Lingpa by the late Agya Rinpoche. He was the last lineage holder of the Dharma blood lineage of Dorje Lingpa, and also empowered Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche as the Dorje Lobpön (Vajracharya) of the Dorje Lingpa lineage.
Agya Rinpoche passed away in the year 2005 before all necessary steps and plans with Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche could be completed. Subsequently of his enthronement his recognition certificate was confirmed (sealed and signed) by H.H. Minling Trichen Rinpoche and H.H. Penor Rinpoche, the former head Lamas of the Buddhist Nyingma lineage.
Unfortunately Dorje Lingpa has no more priority to any of the Tibetan lineages in our present time. There is no support in working with this ancient material whatsoever.
Consequently Tulku Khyungdor Rinpoche carried on with his main subject, the research for the far more ancient and original lineage of Vairocana. The outcome of this long research was unexpected; further details can be read about above.
He grew up practising Yoga since early childhood due to his father who was a Yoga teacher. Complementary to his traditional Buddhist training, he was also trained in Chinese medicine and astrology. He studied holistic medicine, and received the state certificate of a Naturopath (German certificate), whereupon he practised his healing arts in Germany for a number of years.
He knows several languages, amongst them Tibetan and Sanskrit.
He also has started to learn the Chinese language in order to communicate with the people of his lineage living in the province Sichuan.
As is known, Rinpoche is also an artist and musician. With eternal Ambiances & Rhythms based in the teachings of his spiritual lineage the sound project "Voice Of Nature" serves to induce the state of altered perception into the audience.
