Mindrolling History Project
The lineage of Mindrolling is vast and important, historically—connected to many aspects of Tibetan Buddhism and its various lineages. In recording its history, one would also have to record the history of many other familial and practice lineages and other great clans of Tibet. The project of compiling such a detailed history of Mindrolling would require much time and research and result in a very long work. Therefore, at this time, we will begin by providing concise information on the history and biographies of the main family members of Mindrolling who were pivotal in preserving and propagating the precious Dharma in general and the Mindrolling lineage in particular.
