Bio for Venerable Lama Konchok Sonam
Venerable Lama Konchok Sonam began his Buddhist training at a young age. A fully ordained Gelong (monk) at the age of 18, he completed retreat on Ngondro (Common and Extraordinary Preliminaries), and the Fivefold Path of Mahamudra under H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche (retreat master), and Gelong Yeshe (retreat teacher). He served as personal attendant to H.H. Chungtsang Rinpoche, H.E. Drubwang Rinpoche, Tongkar Tulku, and H.E. Thritsab Rinpoche, and tutored American tulku Thadag Rinpoche (Jack Churchward). Lama Sonam received teachings and blessings from 25-30 great masters, including Nyathak Rinpoche, his beloved main teacher, and the Most Venerable Pachung Rinpoche, the renown scholar and retreat master at Drikung-Til monestary (the late H.E. Drubwang Rinpoche's teacher).
Lama Sonam was the disciplinarian at the famous monastery Jang Chub Ling, in Dehra Dun, India. This difficult position required an extremely vast knowledge of the Buddha-Dharma, and inspirational deep inner qualities. After that, Lama Sonam traveled extensively, and taught the Dharma all over the world.
Venerable Lama Sonam is currently the resident Lama at the Drikung Meditation Center in Boston, MA.
