Tulku Migmar is a fully ordained monk from Ka Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery, Nepal and was recognized as a reincarnation of a realized practitioner or "Tulku". Through the years, Tulku Migmar proved to be an outstanding monk, quickly mastering all the elaborate Buddhist rituals and sacred arts so essential to Tibetan Buddhism. In addition, he also excelled at the intricacies of Buddhist dialectics in the monastery's advanced Buddhist studies program, or "Shedra" (Monastic College). Having completed six years in the Shedra, he successfully undertook his meditation training, including a 3-year solitary meditation retreat under the guidance of the renowned meditation master, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche. Recognizing his congeniality and strong capacity to help others, our Rinpoches have decided to send Tulku Migmar to Rangjung Yeshe Oddiyana. As a resident lama, Tulku Migmar would serve the lay practitioners as their instructor in meditation, Buddhist philosophy and the complex ritual arts of the Chokling Tesar Lineage.
Khenpo Gyaltsen, who hails from Nubri (at the border of Nepal and Tibet), was ordained as a monk at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery at the age of nine. He completed his elementary education in language and rituals at the monastery, and served in all the major positions in the monastery including as chopon (shrine master) and four years' as gekug (disciplinarian). During this time, he also studied various Buddhist philosophical texts with Khenpo Choga which then inspired him to continue philosophical studies. At the age of twenty-five, he went to Sera Je College in India to study for four years. He then completed the entire Buddhist philosophical course at Ngagyur Nyingma Institute over ten years, graduating as a Lopon (which is equivalent to a Master's degree). Thereafter, he served as a teacher at the Institute for three years, after which he was awarded the title of Khenpo (which is equivalent to a full professor). As a Khenpo, he served the Institute for a year and then returned to Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery to head the Sangye Yeshe Monastic College. Khenpo Gyaltsen has also been teaching at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute since his return, and has wide experience teaching the ordained sangha and foreigners alike.
