      BRIEF BIOGRAPHY: Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche is one of the three
      senior Khenpos (Abbots) at Ngagyur Nyingma Institute, the prestigious
      Buddhist studies and research center in Bylakuppe, India. He received
      training under many masters in India, and received the entire Longchen
      Nyingthik lineage and commentaries directly from His Holiness Dilgo
      Khyentse Rinpoche; the entire New Treasure Lineage from His Holiness
      Dudjom Rinpoche; and the Nam Cho and Rinchen Terzod from His Holiness
      Penor Rinpoche. Khen Rinpoche studied at Varanasi with Khenchen Palden
      Sherab, graduating with honors as the most outstanding student among all
      his classmates in all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Khen Rinpoche
      was part of the small assembly of monks in 1981 when His Holiness Penor
      Rinpoche first gave the first empowerments and teachings known as
      Liberation is in the Palm of Your Hand, the same set of practices he has
      been teaching in New York. His Holiness Penor Rinpoche has instructed
      Khen Rinpoche to offer teachings internationally twice yearly. Khen
      Rinpoche's fluent English, quick sense of humor and deep insight into
      the Western mind makes him particularly suited to teaching in the West.
