Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche (1938-2010)
In 1965, Khenchen Rinpoche was selected by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche to represent the Nyingma lineage in a historic collaboration with all the Tibetan lineages to organize an education system for Tibetan refugees in India. Khenchen Rinpoche was a founding member of the Institute for Tibetan Higher Studies at Sarnath, India where in the early years he taught 12-14 classes per day. He also taught at Sanskrit University as head professor of Nyingmapa studies.
In 1984 Khenchen Rinpoche moved to New York to work closely with H. H. Dudjom Rinpoche, & in 1988, he & his brother Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche founded the Padmasambhava Buddhist Center. Khenchen Rinpoche authored over 25 books in Tibetan and English.
Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche worked tirelessly his entire life to pass on the authentic, ancient Buddhist teachings and has inspired many Dharma practitioners the world over, leaving a great legacy of peace, love, & wisdom. Truly, he is a son of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava, and we will honor and revere him & his legacy forever.
