Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro

In Blazing Splendor we find so many times a mention of the great master Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro that we just have to know more about him. Luckily, the talented young translator Adam Pearcey has translated a rather lengthy biography by Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche and made it available online: http://www.lotsawahouse.org/id40.html There is also a shorter version: http://www.rangjung.com/authors/Dzongsar_Khyentse_Chokyi_Lodro.htm
The photo is from Kalimpong, possibly 1958.

In about 1945, when Chagdud Tulku was a teenager who had just completed his first three-year retreat, and Dzongsar Khyentse was His Holiness Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro, one of the most illustrious masters of the twentieth century, Chagdud Rinpoche journeyed with the great Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche to request that His Holiness Khyentse Chokyi Lodro indicate the whereabouts of two important tulkus of Tenp’hel Gonpa [in the Kham region of eastern Tibet]. Several days later His Holiness gave the Tenp’hel Gonpa lamas a letter with precise instructions about the location of the two tulkus - how far their villages were from the monastery, their ages, the names of their parents, all the information necessary to find the boys without contradiction or doubt. To this day the monastery is blessed by those infallible indications. On the occasion Chagdud Rinpoche also received from Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Rinpoche the Rinchen Tangyud empowerments and caught his first glimpse of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, who was attending the empowerments.
