Who is His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche?

His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche was born in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. He was recognized as a holy child and began training as a lama from the age of four. Rinpoche attended the Buddhist university in Sarnath, India, and later received teachings, empowerments, and transmissions from many of the greatest Tibetan Buddhist masters of his time, including H.H. Taklung Shabdrung Rinpoche, H.H. Taklung Tsetrul Rinpoche, H.H. Penor Rinpoche, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and his root teacher Sangye Dorje Chatral Rinpoche. Rinpoche is a lineage holder of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, with transmissions in the Longchen Nyingthig, Pema Sangthig, and Düdjom Tersar traditions.

With great compassion and wisdom, His Eminence teaches us how to actualize the essence of our precious human lives. Just as a small key can open the door to the vast and splendid treasures hidden within a palatial mansion, Rinpoche’s pithy and succinct teachings can reveal profound, life-changing instructions on how to transform our way of being in everyday life. For over 30 years Rinpoche has conducted countless retreats, seminars, and empowerments throughout Asia, North America, and Europe.  

In April 2018, the construction of the Mahasiddha Sanctuary for Universal Peace commenced. His Eminence Shyalpa Tenzin Rinpoche invites everyone to participate and support this most worthy project. In this way, everyone will have the opportunity to share in the meritorious karma.
