Phende Norbu Rinpoche

Phende Norbu Rinpoche (b.? - d.?) was a son of Dudjom Rinpoche and Sangyum Kusho Tseten Yudron, and a younger brother of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. Though he was a tulku and a son of Dudjom Rinpoche, he was a very discrete simple man, and maintained very low profile[1]. He settled in Nepal.

According to his brother Thinley Norbu Rinpoche[2]:

Phende Norbu Rinpoche (‘Jewel of Beneficial Well-Being’) [was] very generous, kind, humble, and unconcerned about doing anything himself for this ordinary life, which is actually of no concern, but causes those who love him to worry.
