Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche is the holder of two spiritual lineages, including both the Ripa Lineage into which he was born as well as the Pema Lingpa Lineage of Gyeling Orgyan Mindrolling monastery in the hidden land of Pemako, which he In addition to fulfilling his role as a spiritual teacher, Jigme Rinpoche began in September 1993 in Orissa, to fulfill his humanitarian role as a socially engaged Buddhist, a term he is happy to be known by, and which has become a central part of his life’s work. He founded the Pure Water Project, for which he received great admiration and a citation from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile.


Jigme Rinpoche is known for his fluency in English and his lively, direct, fluid, humorous and down to earth teaching style. His clear and fresh outlook very quickly cuts through cultural and personal misperceptions about the Buddhadharma, East and West, ancient ways and modern life, and individual confusion. Jigme Rinpoche’s teachings focus on the themes of openness, and a clear perception of life in its immediacy, unadorned by interpretation and judgment.
