It is with great joy that we announce another visit of Khenchen Samdrup Rinpoche, who already gave a wonderful course here last year.
This time Rinpoche will give us an overview of the different views of Buddhist philosophy.
The knowledge of this is especially important for the correct understanding of the concept of ’emptiness from an intrinsic nature’.
Khen Rinpoche Samdrup was born in 1975 in the Kham region of eastern Tibet. In 1986 he entered Dhong Tshang Monastery (closely associated with Dongsang Shabdrung Rinpoche). Until 1993 he received his basic education in Tibetan literature and made several retreats. After that he received the complete path and fruit teachings from Luding Khenchen Rinpoche. In 1994, after going into exile, he joined the Dzongsar Shedra, and in 2003 he completed all his studies in philosophy and Vajrayana there. During the winter breaks, he received many important teachings and instructions from both His Holiness Sakya Trizin and Dagchen Rinpoche. He took his higher monastic vows with Luding Khenchen Rinpoche in 2005 and became a fully ordained monk. From 1999 to 2001, he himself served as a teacher of Tibetan literature at the Shedra. He then served as a revision teacher for two years. Since 2004, he has been a full-fledged teacher at the Shedra. He received his Khenpo title from His Holiness Sakya Trizin in 2008, and in 2016 he was appointed head of the Dzongsar Shedra by Kyabje Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.
