The final nirvana of a Buddhist monk: Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche

On March 2012 a well known Buddhist monk, venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche, attained the parinirvana state (a Buddhist term that indicates that a realized being has left his physical body and achieve final nirvana) at Benchen monastery in Swayambhu, Nepal. This is the story of how I came to know about this great Buddhist master and my visit to the monastery where he attained parinirvana.
