Very much inspired by a recent weekend retreat with Mingyur Rinpoche, I was looking for a list of the great contemporary Tibetan Buddhist teachers in America. Finding no such recent list, I decided to put one together. Here it is:
Chskyi Nyima Rinpoche
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
Dzigar Kongrul Rinpoche
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Of course, any additions, comments on your part are most welcome!
