Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-87) - one of Tibet’s foremost yogins, scholars, and meditation masters. He was recognized as the incarnation of Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904), whose previous incarnations included the greatest masters, yogins and pandits such as Shariputra, Saraha and Khyeu Chung Lotsawa. Considered to be the living representative of Padmasambhava, he was a prolific author and revealer of the ‘treasures’ (terma) concealed by Padmasambhava. A prolific author and meticulous scholar, Dudjom Rinpoche wrote more than forty volumes, amongst the most well-known of which are his monumental Fundamentals and History of the Nyingma School. Over the last decade of his life he spent much time teaching in the West, where he helped to establish the Nyingma tradition, founding major centres in France and the United States.
