His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche passed away in Thimbu, Bhutan, on September 23, 1991, at the age of eighty-one. The reincarnation of Jamyang Khyentse the Great, one of the founders of the Rime, or nonsectarian, movement that arose in nineteenth-century Tibet, Dilgo Khyentse was considered by many to be the last great exemplar of that movement. The lineage holder of the Nyingmapa Shehechen Monastery, he was a teacher of many of the leading Sakyapa and Kagyu teachers, including Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and he held the rank of tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was also the guru, or preceptor, of the royal family of Bhutan. In addition, he expounded the dharma extensively in North America and Europe.
