About Lama Khyimsar Rinpoche, continued (3)

He also maintains the She-dra school aspect in his Drub-dra as an essential part in this that philosophical teachings are given such as:

  teachings on tawa (Views), gom-pa (Meditations), chod-pa (Characteristics) and dre-bu (the result) of Dho (Sutra), Ngak (Tantra) and Sem or Dzogchen;

  the importance of understanding tong-pa nyid or tong-nyid in general and in particular as per the respective views of dho, ngak, sem-soom;

  the Zhi-Lam-Drebui Nam-zhak or the designation of base, path and result;

  the application of dhen-pa nyii or dhen-nyii (the two truths) in Dho and Ngak, etc.

The Drub-dra schools he has established in the West are a continuation of the model of the Drub-dra school founded by Zhu Nam-gyal Drak-pa in the early 20th Century at the waist of Mount Mo-meinin Dromo (upper Chumbi Valley), southern part of Tibet. This first Drub-dra was located at Dho-kyim (rustic type of retreat house) which takes 3 hours on foot from His monastery Pungmo Gon. The present Drub-dra of the Zhu lineage is called Khyimsar Drub-dra.

Khemar Rinpoche and his elder brother Lama Sonam G. Khyimsar are both regarded by their predecessors and their parents as Yang-sid-Trul-kus of Tshampa Yungdrung Wangyal the than 14th seat holder of Pungmo Gon. There is the notion in Yungdrung Bön and Buddhism that a Lama could reincarnate in to three trul-kus, each of them representing a different aspects (body, speech and mind).
