Ricard states:

“Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche was chiefly a master of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism but, like Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, he was a perfect example of a non-sectarian teacher… These images were taken during the transmission of the Treasury of Precious Instructions (Dam-gnak Dzö), at Shechen monastery, in 2003.”
