At the age of 10, he entered the main Sakya Monastery, Thubten Lhakhang Chenmo, and took up the novice-monk ordination. He studied at the monastery until 1994, when he escaped from Tibet to India. He found refuge in Dehra Dun, home to the Sakya Monastery in exile and His Holiness Sakya Trizin. He enrolled to the Sakya College, a Monastic University where he studied and deepened his understanding of various aspects of the Buddhist practice and philosophy. He completed his studies in the year 2000, and was awarded ‘Kachu-pa’ and ‘Loppön’ degrees.
In May 2000, he moved to Switzerland to take care of the Thupten Changchup Ling centre in Arosio as its resident monk. He has been in charge of the temple, and has lead daily rituals and meditation sessions.
In 2008, he returned to India to take the Bikshu vows, i.e. the vows of a fully ordained monk. More...
