Short Biography[edit]

The Very Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche (1942-2010) was one of the most qualified scholars and teachers of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the 20th century.
He entered Gochen Monastery at the age of six, where he began intensive training in all facets of Tibetan Buddhism. At age 12 he entered Riwoche Monastery, training to become a Khenpo. In 1960 he had to flee to India. There, for over 15 years, he was in charge of the Nyingmapa Department at the Central Institute of Higher Studies in Varanasi, as well as being a founding member of that Institute. In the 1980's he began teaching at various centers of Dudjom Rinpoche in the West. In 1988, along with his brother, Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, who acts as his translator, he founded the Padmasambhava Buddhist Centers, which now have branches in the U.S., India, and Russia.
Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche has received many honors for his scholarship from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche and other Tibetan leaders. He is fully versed in many areas of Buddhist study and is the author of several learned works and Tibetan language books. He is also considered a master of Dzogchen, the highest tradition of meditation practice in Tibetan Buddhism.
