Venerable Zuri Tulku Rinpoche
Karma Thegsum Dhechenling Monastery, Barshang, East Bhutan
Born in Bhutan, the Venerable 8th Zuri Rinpoche was recognised by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa at two months old. At two, His holiness presided over his ceremony in Bhutan in the presence of the Karmapa’s four heart sons and many renowned Rinpoches. He was bestowed the Dharma name Karma Migyur Tenpei Tenpei Gyaltshen Jigme Gocha.
At a young age, Rinpoche entered Rumtek Monastery, the Karmapa’s seat in Sikkim, India, to receive intensive traditional Buddhist education. He studied at the Karma Shri Nalanda Institute and performed brilliantly under the guidance of the Karmapa. He then proceeded to Nepal to further his studies in the three yanas, the five major treatises and the four tantras in the Namo Buddha Institute. Moreover, he studied extensively in India and Bhutan. He had also received empowerments and teachings from Various Lineages. From the Kagyu tradition such masters as Thrangu Rinpoche, the 1st Kalu Rinpoche and from the Kagyu and Nyingma Lineages Tulki Urgyen Rinpoche.
Zuri Rinpoche started the spreading of Dharma in 1993. Committed in the Bodhisattva Path to spread the Dharma and liberate all sentient beings from samsara, Rinpoche travelled to and from Bhutan, Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan, setting up Buddhist centres, giving teachings, conducting pujas, holding retreats and animal protection activities.
