His Eminence Kenting Tai Situ Rinpoche is great living enlightened being. Between the Tergar Monastery in Tibet and the reincarnations of all the Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and the Palpung Monastery in Tibet and His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche’s reincarnations they all really connected. For example the first Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche was treasure revealer and he found the precious texts like Dorje Drolo all those things. And what we call these treasure revealer there is always what we call the owner of the text, the owner of the dharma. This is why the 1st Tai Situ Rinpoche is the owner of the practice of the Dorje Drolo and so on and so on. And there is very strong connection between His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche and first Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. And from second Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche. And these all connected with the Palpung Monastery because Tergar Monastery in Tibet is the branch of the Palpung Monastery. What we call independent branch. And then His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche is the teacher of all Yongey Mingyur Rinpoches and the spiritual leader for Tergar Monastery in Tibet. And all the reincarnations of His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche are great, not just great enlightened masters, and also great scholars. For example the 8th Tai Situ Rinpoche was one of the most influential scholars in Tibet. Really really influential to all different lineages of Tibetan Buddhism by developing study text, and all the different philosophy of buddhism. And also even how to write and the grammar and the poetry, astrology, medicine, so on and so on. This is why it is really very very important teachers in Tibet. And the 9th Tai Situpa is one of the first, I mean almost the first founder of the three year retreat style in Tibet. The 9th Tai Situ Rinpoche half of his life, the end of his life spend in retreat and giving teaching for three year retreat. And the system of the three year retreat begin by 9th Tai Situ Rinpoche, Situ Pema Nyinche. And then 10th Tai Situ Rinpoche, 11th Tai Situ Rinpoche, now is 12th Tai Situ Rinpoche.
