Teacher Spotlight: Adzom Gyalse Tulku Rinpoche
In celebration of our upcoming onsite retreats in Colorado with Adzom Gyalse Rinpoche, we share this special “Teacher Spotlight” blog post, detailing the history and lineage of Adzom Gyalse Rinpoche.
Adzom Gyalse Tulku Rinpoche was born in December 1980 in central Bhutan and since the age of eight has been living mainly at Shechen Monastery in Nepal. He is a master of the Nyingma school of Tibetan or Himalayan Buddhism and works closely with his main teachers HH Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche and HE Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche. He provides guidance for the monastery’s Sangha and is a teacher in its Philosophical College (Shedra).
In 1969, Adzom Gyalse Gyurme Dorje (1895-1969), the third son and student of Adzom Drukpa, passed away with many miraculous signs being displayed. Prior to his death, he had left a letter predicting the date and place of his future rebirth as well as the names of his future parents. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche identified a child born in Bhutan in 1980 as the reincarnation of Adzom Gyalse Gyurme Dorje, who is now known as Adzom Gyalse Rinpoche.
