H. E. Jamgong Mipham Rinpoche
The history of the incarnations of the great Nyingma scholar, terton and meditational adept, Jamgong Mipham Rinpoche is surprisingly small considering the wealth of sutra and tantra commentaries which Mipham Rinpoche wrote during his first incarnation.
It is often stated that Mipham Rinpoche was one of the great Rimé figures because of the vastness of his scholarly works.
However it is also known that the first Mipham Rinpoche spent many years in strict meditational retreat and displayed many signs of enlightenment.
He is considered to be an emanation of the bodhisattva Manjushri.
