Lama Lobsang was discovered as a tulku as a young boy, when Jungan Rinpoche recognized him as the reincarnation of the Nyingma guru yoga master Rinzen Karma Dorje. He studied all aspects of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and practice at Amdo Tashi Kyil and Kaja To Monasteries in Eastern Tibet. Lama is a gifted energy healer who has received His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s blessing to practice healing work. He learned Tibetan Yantra Yoga and Tibetan Healing Massage from Rinzen Geshe Nyima, a Tibetan doctor who was a healing lama, and he learned much from his grandfather, who was himself a healing lama and yogi.
Lama’s teachers in Tibet also included Geshe Dawa, Khedrub Gyamtso, Tse Lobsang Palden, and Khandrolma, a respected Khandro who is also his aunt. He left Chinese-occupied Tibet at age 18, escaping across the Himalayas on foot. He lived at Tashi Kyil Monastery in Dehra Dun, India, for 10 years. He has received many teachings from H.H. the Dalai Lama and other Tibetan masters, including the 10th Panchen Lama, H.H. the Sakya Trizin, and Mindrolling Trichen Rinpoche. He is both a Rime and a Ngakpa lama who teaches all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. He is known and beloved for his deep, abiding respect for the Three Jewels. He has and continues to travel the world sharing and teaching the precious Buddhist Dharma.
