Bio for Tulku Nyima Gyaltsen Rinpoche
Tulku Nyima Gyaltsen Rinpoche was born in the water horse year of 1942 in Tromtar, Eastern Tibet (Kham).The great Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro recognized him as a reincarnate lama (a tulku) when he was just a small child. At the age of 12, he went to Nyoshul Monastery to study, and trained under many masters, including Orgyen Rigdzin,
Khenpo Munsel, and Arig Rinpoche - his root teacher.
During this time he studied and meditated on the classic works of the Sakya and Nyingma traditions. In 2003, on his first visit to the United States, he met His Holiness Sakya Trizin who recognized him as a 'genuine reincarnate lama of the Sakya
tradition." His Holiness also described him as 'well accomplished." H.E. Garchen Rinpoche met Tulku Nyima Rinpoche's visit to the U.S. in 2003 Rinpoche was able to visit Garchen Institute in Arizona where Garchen Rinpoche with
tremendous affection supplicated Tulku Nyima to teach his students during one of Garchen Rinpoche's regularly scheduled teaching times at the summer retreat.Garchen
Rinpoche stressed the preciousness of the opportunity to receive teachings from such a great master.
Tulku Nyima is recognized as one of the five emanations of Khenpo Ngagchung, one of the greatest Nyingma masters of the previous century and a prophesied emanation of Vimalamitra and Longchenpa. Khenpo Ngachung authored "A guide to the Words of My Perfect Teacher".
Since 2002 he has been the abbot of the Dokho Monastery in Derge, Eastern Tibet. In 2003, while visiting the U.S. Rinpoche announced his intention to establish his first center in the West and named it
Sakya Dokho Choling; it is located in Germantown, Maryland. Tulku Nyima has been the abbot of many different monasteries in Tibet since 1985 and has taught in universities both in Tibet and in America. He has many disciples, among them Lamas and Tulkus from many regions including Central Tibet, Amdo, Kham, and Inner Mongolia.
