One of a kind, Mani Stone hand carved by the 10th Bhakha Rinpoche, Tulku Orgyen Phuntsok’s Uncle, in 1992 (8.5″ x 3.5″ x 1.75″). The Bhakha Tulkus have been considered as the incarnations of Dorje Lingpa, who was considered an emanation of Vairotsana, primary holder of the lineage of Rigdzin Pema Lingpa, and Shikpo Lingpa. He studied at Mindroling in Tibet, and later at the school for young tulkus in Dalhousie, India. He has received many teachings from great masters including Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Dodrupchen Rinpoche. He also holds the Dzogchen lineage of the Namchö tradition, the Longchen Nyingtik and the Chetsün Nyingtik. He received Dudjom Tersar, Rinchen Terdzö and many other teachings from Dudjom Rinpoche, whom he served for a number of years. He has also served and received transmissions from Penor Rinpoche and Chatral Rinpoche. Due to health condition Bhakha Rinpoche will no longer be able to carve Mani Stones. Value: Priceless
