Vajrayana:Drikung Kagyu

Brief Biography Khenchen Rinpoche, born in Tsari, Tibet in the spring of 1946, came to the West in the early 1980's to found the Tibetan Meditation Center in Washington, D.C. The only Khenchen in the Drikung lineage, Rinpoche completed a nine-year course of study at the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies in Varanasi, India beginning in 1967. After leaving Tibet as a child with his family, Khenchen Rinpoche became a novice monk while a student at a school for Tibetans in India. In early 1968, he had the good fortune to take full monastic ordination from the great Shangpa Kagyu master Kalu Rinpoche and, shortly after graduating from the Institute, he received teachings from the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa on The Eight Treasures of Mahamudra Songs, by the Indian mahasiddhas.
