Younge Drodul Ling
Venerable Younge Khachab Rinpoche VII
Younge Khachab Rinpoche, seventh in the Khachab line of reincarnations, is a direct descendent of the famed terton, Younge Migyur Dorje and holds the family lineage for this cycle of termas. His family has been closely associated with the Karmapas since the 17th century.
He is a highly accomplished non-sectarian master, having been educated at Ganden and Rumtek. He has studied widely with the top masters in the Kagyu, Gelug, Nyingma, Sakya and Bon schools. He received his Geshe degree from Ganden University and was appointed Khenpo of a Kagyu monastery in Nepal where he served for several years.
Rinpoche's style of teaching is direct, warm, and engaging. He is accessible and takes personal interest in his students' progress. Rinpoche presently makes his home in the United States.
Doing the long life supplication extends Rinpoche's life and also helps the student to become deeply connected with Rinopoche. One would visualize Rinpoche on a lotus on top of one's head with light radiating from his heart center and then do the Supplication. One would then accumulate the mantra, keeping the visualization. 108 daily is the minimum recommended.
