What does Khyenkong Tharjay mean?
The name ‘Khyenkong‘ derives from the names of both Khyentse Rinpoche and Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche respectively. During the late Jamgon Kongtrul’s life, both him and Beru Khyentse Rinpoche were best Dharma friends and mutually relied on each other. Therefore, the name Khyenkong remains a precious remembrance of their unchanging relationship.
The name ‘Tharjay’ was the name taken from the monastery Pal Karmey Chode Dongak Shedrup Thubten Tharjay Chokhorling, which was named by His Holiness, the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.
