Menri Lopon Trinley Nyima Rinpoche

Menri Ponlob Trinley Nyima Rinpoche is the principal instructor at Menri Monastery in Dolanji, India. He was born in 1962 in the Dolpo region of north-western Nepal in the remote Himalayan village of Chharka. He is the successor of Yongzin Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s family name is “Yangton” which traces its ancestry back to Yangton Sherab Gyaltsen, born in 1077. A famous Dzogchen and Tantric master, Yangton Sherab Gyaltsen was the first to set in writing the Dzogchen Experiential Transmission (Zhang Zhung Nyam Gyud). This revered teaching is taught today by Menri Lopon as well as other well known Bön masters.

Long Life Prayers for Menri Ponlop Rinpoche

E Ma Ho!

pong lam gön pö nam zhi trim pön dzé

gyur lam wang pö rigdzin zhi lam tön

dröl lam nga dak nang zhi dön sal dzé

trin lé nam zhi ten dro kyang gyur chik

How wonderful! Lord of the path of renunciation,
he oversees the discipline of the four original monks.

Ruler of the path of transformation, he shows the path of the four rigzin.

Master of the path of liberation, he clarifies the meaning of the four visions.

Through the four types of  enlightened activity may he continually protect the teachings  for migrating beings.

( Written by Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. Prayer and Mantra sung by Geshe Chaphur.)
