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.
