Dongsung Shabdrung Rinpoche was recognized as a tulku at age 9. He entered Ngor Monastery, where was trained intensively in ritual practice. At age 15, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche personally accepted him into Dzongsar Institute, where he began his studies toward a khenpo degree, which he received in 2005. Again at Rinpoche’s urging, he accepted a position managing and caring for the monks at a Sakya monastery located just outside of Gangtok, Sikkim. He still holds that responsibility.
In 2013, KF sponsored Dongsung Shabdrung Rinpoche to travel to the University of California Berkeley as a visiting scholar for the fall semester. Rinpoche balanced his time in Berkeley between teaching and learning. He made the most of his time here and kept a full schedule.
