Spiritual Director (Emeritus)
The Abbot of Tubten Chokhor Ling Monastery in Golog, Tibet, Hungkar Dorje Rinpoche was born into a nomadic family of great and realized yogins. Rinpoche was recognized early in his life by such Buddhist masters as H.H. Orgyen Kusum Lingpa, H.H. Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Penor Rinpoche, and later, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as the reincarnation of Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje, the mind emanation of Jigme Lingpa. He has trained extensively in Buddhist studies at a monastic university in India and in an Institute for Tulkus in Beijing, and has initiated numerous charitable projects for better education and cultural and environmental preservation in Tibet. He teaches with incredible humility and lucidity.
