In the Nyingma lineage of Vajrayana Buddhism, Katog Getse Rinpoche is the fourth incarnation of the great scholar and accomplished siddha, Wangchug Getse Mahapandita. Born in Golog, Rinpoche studied and practiced under great masters such as H.E. Jigmed Phuntsog, Dudjom Lingpa’s grandson Tulku Nyida, Adzom Drukpa, Katok Moktsa Rinpoche, Khenpo Ngakchung, and H.H. the Dalai Lama, of whom he is a “heart son.” Throughout Rinpoche’s life he has maintained the lifestyle of an "ascetic” wanderer, traveling in Nepal, Bhutan, India, and other countries. A highly esteemed incarnate, Getse Rinpoche has spent many years in retreat and is known for his mastery of Dzogchen.
