About Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche
Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche was born in 1954 in a village near Lhakhang Dzong in the southern region of Tibet bordering Bhutan called Lhodrak. In 1969 he entered CIHTS at Sarnath, where he followed a nine-year curriculum in Buddhist studies and graduated with the degree of Acharya in 1978. After graduation he was invited to teach at Palyul Namdroling Monastery in South India, where for several years, he taught at the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute. In 1983 he was enthroned as a Khenpo (Professor of Buddhist Studies) by His Holiness Pema Norbu Rinpoche.
