Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche (birth name Tsering Paldrön; born August 19, 1967) is a teacher in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Born in Kalimpong, India, she is the daughter of the late Mindrolling Trichen. At the age of two, she was recognized as the reincarnation of Urgyen Tsomo, who was one of the most well-known female masters of her time.

Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche teaches in Europe, North America, and Asia. She is actively involved with the Mindrolling Monastery in India and in 1993, Rinpoche established the Samten Tse Retreat Centre in Mussoorie, India, as a branch of Mindrolling Monastery, a place of study and retreat for both nuns and Western lay practitioners. In 2003, she established the Mindrolling Lotus Garden Retreat Centre in Stanley, Virginia, USA. In 2014, Rinpoche established the Mindrolling Ösel Ling centre in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
