His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche – A Short Biography

His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, a high reincarnated Lama from Gaden Shartse Monastery in India, is the Founder and Spiritual Advisor of the Kechara organisation.

Enthroned as the reincarnation of the 72nd Abbot of Gaden Shartse, Gedun Nyedrak, His Eminence’s spiritual lineage began as one of the eight main disciples of Lama Tsongkhapa, the founding saint of the Gelugpa school of Tibetan Buddhism.

Rinpoche has studied under many esteemed gurus, including His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche, His Holiness Kyabje Ling Rinpoche and His Eminence Lati Rinpoche. Through his Mongolian-Tibetan heritage, a childhood in Taiwan & America, and intensive study at Gaden Monastery, His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche is a most rare and precious teacher with a unique teaching ability to bridge the East and West.

Based on logic and shared human values, Rinpoche’s message is universal, free from the limitations of dogma, culture and individual background. With his prowess in public speaking, immense knowledge and wisdom, Rinpoche makes ancient Buddhist knowledge accessible and relevant to the inhabitants of the 21st century.

Also renowned for his charitable works such as building schools, hospitals; providing assistance and food to the poor and underprivileged, His Eminence’s organisation, Kechara, continues to bring benefit to the world through its many divisions and activities.
