New Photo of Khenpo Ngawang Palzang (Khenpo Ngakchung)


Rinpoche is currently quite excited about this recently discovered photograph of the great Dzogchen master Khenpo Ngakchung (1879-1941), author of A Guide to the Words of My Perfect Teacher (Zindri). This is only the second photo of the great master to have appeared so far. In the other, more familiar photo he is shown wearing the pandita's hat, which can also be seen in this picture, hanging over the back of his throne.

Hi Cristina, I am not sure of the details. But it would have been found in Tibet. (Sorry about the delay in responding).
