Tara is the manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of compassion upon seeing the misery and suffering of the confused beings in the world.
Tara is invoked for her compassion and swift action, and particularly White Tara is the embodiment of long life and wisdom.
Chime Phagma Nyingtik (The heart essence of the Immortal Noble Tara) is a “treasure” teaching that was revealed by the great 19th Century master Jamayng Khyentse Wangpo. This cycle of teachings is regarded as particularly profound, and was one of the main practices of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
As the oldest son of Tekchok Tenpel, the third incarnation of Chokgyur Lingpa at Neten, Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche has received many transmissions from Dzongsar Khyentse Chökyi Lodro, and especially from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, his root guru, for whom he often served as close attendant. After his father's death, he assumed responsibility for completing the construction of the monastery at Bir in Himachel Pradesh, and overseeing the upbringing of the tulku of his father. He is known for his encyclopedic knowledge of Buddhist history and practices, as well as his mastery of Vajrayana rituals. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche played the role of Geko in Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche's first film, The Cup.
