Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche

In the September 4, 2009 edition of the Interview, Rinpoche talked to Carrie Gracie about the particular stresses she has had to deal with as a result of that identification of her as a reincarnation, and how that identification has propelled her into a life of scholarship and contemplation. She also considers the nature of Buddhism and debates whether the religion has become over-formalised in recent years, and whether she has herself reached a state of enlightenment. Finally she muses on the eighteen or more kinds of hell that may await us in the next life, or even in this current one, and tells Carrie why she is not afraid of the life that is to come.
