Venerable Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche Visit


May 23-25, 2014

Venerable Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche is a distinquished Lama of the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, and is recognized as an esteemed scholar, an accomplished Dzogchen master, and an authentic and highly qualified teacher from an unbroken lineage of revered Palyul/Nyingma masters. He has received all the major empowerments and transmissions of the Nyingmapa school, including the Dudjom Tersar from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche; the Longchen Nyingthig Yabshi and Nyingma Kama from Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and the Rinchen Terdzö and Nam Chö from His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche and other eminent masters. Rinpoche graduated from a nine year curriculum at Sarnath in 1978 under the guidance of his principal teacher, Khenpo Palden Sherab Rinpoche, ranking first in all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. For this outstanding achievement he was given the degree of Acharya (teacher or spiritual master) and awarded the Silver Medal of Honor by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

In 1983 he was enthroned as a Khenpo (professor) by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, who also at that time selected him to be Namdroling Monastery’s main worldwide representative. He has since traveled the globe teaching, conferring empowerments, and giving personal instruction in Buddhist practice to anyone who wished to receive it. During his first visit to Dallas in the Spring of 1998 Rinpoche founded Palyul Changchub Dhargyayling Dallas. Now a Khenchen (most honored or highest professor), Rinpoche’s profound level of accomplishment, impeccability in maintaining his vows, deep understanding of the Western mind, and precious ability to speak to all levels of students at once, make him one of the most highly respected and revered teachers of the entire Palyul/Nyingma lineage.

We are deeply honored to have our Founder and Spiritual Director Venerable Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche with us once again!
