About the Teacher

The highly venerated Eighth Khangser Rinpoche, Tenzin Tsultrim Palden, was born in Kathmandu, Nepal in May 1975. At the age of 5, he was recognized as the reincarnation of the Seventh Khangser Rinpoche, who was one of the three high lamas responsible for searching for the fourteenth reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Khangser Rinpoche started basic study of Buddhist philosophy in the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics, Dharamsala. Thereafter, he completed advanced Buddhist studies on sutra and tantra in Sera Jey Monastery, Karnataka, and Gyuto Tantric Monastic University in India, where he obtained Geshe Lharampa and a Doctorate Degree in tantra both with highest honors among the top division. He has directly received a wealth of teachings on both Tantra and Sutra from many great Tibetan yogis and from spiritual teachers from the four major Tibetan Buddhist sects. Some of his teachers include His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Kyabje Dilgo Kysentse Rinpoche, Lati Rinpoche, Khensur Lobsang Tsering, Khe Tsun Sangpo Rinpoche, and Choegye Trichen Rinpoche. Khangser Rinpoche presently serves as a professor teaching buddhist philosophy at Sera Jey Monastic University, one of the three great Gelugpa Monastic Universities. In 2012 he established the Dipankara Buddhist Organization to to convey the practice of mind training all over the world. In addition he delivers public teachings on Tibetan Buddhism to diverse audiences from India, Nepal, Vietnam, China, Korea, Tibet, and the West.
