A Rinpoche is a previously enlightened being who has chosen, out of Great Compassion to return to this earthly realm of suffering . . . though he or she does not have to re-enter the cycle of life and death and life and death . . . but chooses to be reborn into the human realm in order to bring all other sentient beings to Awakening about the profound truth of what the heck we are doing here!
Rinpoche also means precious. Rinpoche also means turquoise.
H.H. Trijang Chocktrul Rinpoche emanates a pure, regal, humble wisdom.
