Dudjom Rinpoche - flanked by Dordrak Rigdzin and Minling Chung

One of the greatest masters of recent times, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, was seen by many of his contemporaries with the pure perception of seeing Padmasambhava in person. Here is he photographed in the mid-1950s, at Samye transmitting the Treasury of Precious Termas. It must have been just before Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche met him in Lhasa and offered the Three Sections of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen Desum). Lobpon Norbu La graciously allowed it to be scanned one fine day I brought my laptop and portable scanner around Boudha. Thanks go out to Lobpon Norbu La!
