Buddha Teaching, Empowerment, & Phowa

Buddha Amitabha is the Buddha of Infinite Light & Life, and his essence is compassion and wisdom. Through Buddha Amitabha’s great effort to benefit all sentient beings, he created the pure land of Sukhavati (meaning “possessing happiness”).  

The Buddha Amitabha and Phowa practices help to assure a more positive rebirth and possible attainment of the Amitabha pure land at the time of death.

Our Spiritual Director and Teacher, the Venerable Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche
Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche

Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche was born in 1954 in the southern region of Tibet bordering Bhutan called Lhodrak. In 1969 he entered the Central Institute of Higher Tibetan studies at Sarnath, near Varanasi. There he followed a nine-year curriculum in Buddhist studies under his principal teacher, Khenpo Palden Sherab, and other masters. He graduated with the degree of Acharya in 1978, ranking first overall among the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism represented at Sarnath. His Holiness the Dalai Lama honored his achievement with the award of a silver medal. After graduation he was invited to teach at Palyul Namdroling Monastery at the Tibetan settlement in Bylakuppe, near Mysore in South India.

Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche has received all of the major lineage empowerments and transmissions of the Nyingmapa school, including the Dudjom Tersar from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche; the Longchen Nyingthig Yabshi, and Nyingma Kama from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche; and the Rinchen Terdzod and Nam Chos from Pema Norbu RInpoche. He has done intensive dzogchen practice under the guidance of Penor Rinpoche and other eminent masters including Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. Pema Norbu Rinpoche authorized him to represent the monastery and to teach, confer empowerments and give personal instruction in Buddhist practice.
