Increasing inner wealth in the land of peace.

"Take advantage of this human boat; Free yourself from sorrow's mighty stream!
This vessel will be later hard to find. The time that you have now, you fool, is not for sleep!"

Short Biography of Khenpo Tenzin Norgey

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 teaching 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 in Tibet.

He has received all the major empowerments of the Rinchen Terzod, Nam Chö, 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.



Instructions for Spiritual Practice by Shakyamuni Buddha
from the Kalama Sutta (Anguttara Nikaya Vol. 1, 188-193 P.T.S. Ed.)

Do not believe in anything (simply) because you have heard it.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
Do not believe in anything because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything (simply) because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
But after observation and analysis when you find that anything agrees with reason
and it is conductive to the good and benefit of one and all –
then accept it and live up to it.
