There has been an increase in people and groups misrepresenting themselves on the internet and social media as being Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche or official outlets for his organizations. To clarify any confusion created by these unofficial accounts, we are sharing a list of the approved and authentic media outlets for Rinpoche and his mandala. Rinpoche has appointed communications teams for his various activities and personally maintains several social media accounts. All of Rinpoche’s official organizations are listed below. If you receive solicitations or communications from a person or organization not listed here, please be cautious in responding.
