Khenpo Tsering Samdrup was born to a family of Tibetan refugees in Dharamsala, India. In his early teens Khenpo moved to Rumtek Monastery, the seat of the Karma Kagyu School of Tibetan Buddhism in Sikkim, India and began his spiritual training as a monk. Over the next 10 years Khenpo underwent a rigorous educational program where he studied all the major texts of Buddhist philosophy, Tibetan literature, grammar and history at Rumtek’s monks’ college – the Shri Nalanda Institute for Higher Buddhist Studies. In 1992, he was awarded the ‘Khenpo’ degree (equivalent to a PhD) and has been teaching the Dharma ever since.
