Khenpo Tenzin Norgey holds the title of Khenpo (Professor of Buddhist Studies) and has recently been
a teaching professor at the Palyul monastery in Tibet and at Ngagyur Nyingma Institute, the prestigious
Buddhist studies and research center, at Namdroling Nyingmapa Monastery near Mysore, India.
He was born in the Tashigang District of Bhutan in 1965. In 1986, he joined the Shedra (college) at
Ngagyur Nyingma Institute. At the Institute he studied under Khenchen Pema Sherab,
Khenpo Namdrol Tsering and Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso and other visiting professors, including
Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok and Khenpo Pema Tsewang from Tibet.
He completed the Shedra program at the Institute in 1995 and joined the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute staff,
teaching there for three years. He was formally enthroned as Khenpo by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche in
1998 and was then assigned by His Holiness to teach at the Buddhist Shedra (college) at Palyul monastery
He has received all the major empowerments of the Rinchen Terzod, Nam ChŲ, Nyingthik Yabshi and
Nyingma Kama from His Holiness Penor Rinpoche as well as the Mipham Kabum from
His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
Because of his knowledge, experience and fluent command of the English language (and fortunately for us
in the United States!), His Holiness Penor Rinpoche has assigned Khenpo Tenzin Norgey to teach students
in the United States in conjunction with the ongoing U.S. teaching programs offered by
Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Khenpo Tenzin Norgey Teaching in Dallas!
December 8-12, 2004
Complete Schedule and Teaching Details Below
Please See Driving Directions To PCD Dallas at bottom of page Before Attending for the First Time
Khenpo Tenzin Norgey, Palyul NY Retreat Center Resident Instructor
Dallas is very fortunate to receive teachings from Khenpo Tenzin Norgey this December!
This is Khenpo Norgey's first trip to Texas - please join us to give him a warm Texas welcome!
Khenpo Tenzin Norgey is the Resident Instructor at Palyul NY Retreat Center (www.palyul.org).
Buddhists, academics and all those interested in Eastern philosophies will benefit and delight as Khenpo Norgey,
an outstanding Buddhist scholar, presents and will de-mystify the profound
Nine Yana Vehicles (to Complete Enlightenment).
Including the esoteric Inner Tantra Practices and the Highest Yoga Tantra: Dzogchen.
Dzogchen (ati yoga) is the highest of the Nine Yanas vehicles in the Inner Yoga teachings.
Dzogchen is much sought-after and is the most esoteric teaching in Tibetan Buddhism. However, actualization
of dzogchen teachings by the individual is dependent on receiving authentic Ďmind to mindí instruction from
a qualified and realized teacher. The Dzogchen teachings are the precious jewels of the Palyul Nam ChŲ lineage,
Nyingma tradition. Dzogchen masters, like Neo in the Matrix, are renowned for transcending ordinary reality.
Dzogchen represents the pinnacle of spiritual achievement and its fruit: Complete Realization in unshakeable Non-Duality.
Khenpo Norgey speaks excellent English and has a very good sense of humor;
he enjoys sharing laughter with students and friends.
At Ngagyur Nyingma Institute in India, the prestigious Namdroling shedra
(or seminary school for the training of Khenpos: professor of Buddhist studies),
Khenpo Norgey is one of the most respected and sought after instructors.
His teachings are very clear and academically sound; given from a base of personal realization.
Out of generosity and concern for students geographically distant from the NY retreat center,
Khenpo Norgey founded the Palyul Cyber-Shedra in 2003.
Using the internet, he presents profound teachings in basic Buddhism interactively in an easily understood
and user-friendly format. During Khenpo Norgey's visit,
we will have the latest updates regarding the Palyul Cyber-Shedra.
May All Beings Benefit!
