About Erik Pema Kunsang

Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, deceased Contributor residences (city, state or country if outside the US or Canada): Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche (1920-1996) is recognized as one of the greatest 20th-century masters of Tibetan Buddhism and one of the first to bring the essential teachings of Buddhism beyond Tibet. Born into an illustrious family, he took as the core of his own practice the indivisibility of the three great traditions: the Dzogchen view of primordial purity and perfection, the Mahamudra view of mental non-doing, and the Middle Way view of holding no mental constructs. After fleeing Tibet shortly before the Dalai Lama, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche devoted the rest of his life to trying to keep the spirit of the classical Tibetan spiritual system alive. Blazing Splendor is a translation of the name he was given by the head of the Kagyu Order of Tibetan Buddhism, the name referring to the qualities of a realized master.
