Khenpo Karma Tenkyong was recently appointed by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa as the new president of our parent monastery Karma Triyana Dharmachakra.
In February, 2015 he visited AAKTC and helped us with the details of some of the practices we do regularly. He also gave some teachings and helped us with the organization of the shrine.
A native of Nepal, Khenpo Tenkyong became a monk at a young age and completed an eleven-year course of Buddhist Studies at Karma Shri Nalanda Institute at Rumtek Monastery, culminating in a Master’s Degree. He has extensive experience teaching religious history, Buddhist philosophy, and logic, and has worked for more than eleven years at the Karmapa’s Office of Administration in Dharamsala, India.
