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.
