We are very happy, that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is sending Do Tulku Rinpoche for his first time to teach in Europe.
Raktrul Ngawang Kunga Rinpoche (a.k.a. Dot Tulku) was born in 1985 in South India where he grew up with his four sisters and received his school education. At the age of 17 he was recognized by H.H. Sakya Trizin as the 6th Raktrul Rinpoche, a Sakya Lama of Do Teng monastery in Kham, Tibet. Subsequently he entered the Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Institute where he received his training in Buddhist philosophy, practice and debate. After eleven years of studies he successfully graduated from there with the title of an Acharya. He also taught at Dzongsar Institute for a year, conducted teachings in schools and led retreats for monks in Mustang. Furthermore he received teachings, transmissions, and initiations from some of the greatest masters of our time like H.H. Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Dagchen Rinpoche, Luding Khenchen Rinpoche and many more. Rinpoche is a translator for the 84000 project. He is a lay practicioner with family.
