Drubwang Adzin Rinpoche

The late Drubwang Adzin Rinpoche, was the elder brother of H.E. Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche. Drubwang Adzin Rinpoche, also known as Kyabje Ritrul Rigdzin Chogyal was the 4th Ripa Chogtrul.

He was born in the Water-Hen year, 1933, with a tangle of long hair on his head, as the son of Ripa Dungdzin Jangchub Shenpen and Mayum Palden Tsomo. In connection with his recognition by Dzongsar Kyentse Chokyi Lodro as the reincarnation of the 3rd Ripa Tulku, Pema Dondrub Gyaltsen, he was given the name Ritrual Rigdzin Chogyal. From Khewang Lama Tsethar, a student of Dzogchen Khenpo Shenga, he studied the many common Buddist sciences as well as the practices of ritual dance, iconometrics, and liturgical chanting belonging to Ripa tradition. From Ripa Jigme Tsewang Chokdrub and the 6th Taksham, Karma Sangak Tendzin Dorje, he received the entirety of the Ripa lineages ripening initiations, liberating instructions, and pith advice. Moreover, from Nyagrong Tertön Jigme Chojung Lingpa, Dudjom Jigtrel Yeshe Dorje, Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche, Shechen Kongtrul Pema Drime, Drubwang Shakya Shri’s son Dungsey Pakchok Dorje, Apo Rinpoche Ngawang Yeshe Rangdrol, and others, he received every type of ripening and liberating teaching without regard to sectarian distinctions between New or Old Translations Schools, such as the Precious Treasury of Terma (Rinchen Terdzo), the Heart-essence of the Great Expanse (Longchen Nyingthig), the Nyingma Transmitted Word Collection (Nyingma Kama), the Seven Treasuries (Dzod Dun), the Collected Works of Drubwang Shakya Shri, along with all of the associated explanatory instructions for each. Then for many years he resided in strict practice retreat.
