Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche

Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche

Tibetan Monk

Lama Ahbay Tulku Jigme Thupten Tendar Rinpoche was born in Darjeeling, India in 1973. When he was nine years old he was fully initiated into monk-hood and the tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Khabche Ling Rinpoche gave him the name Thupten Tendar. When he was twelve, His Holiness the Dalai Lama identified him as the reincarnation of the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin, who lived in a cave and was famous for his supernatural powers. One year later he was enthroned as Tulku in Gaden Jangtse Monastery. As the hermit Lama Lobsang Tenzin, the animals of the forest, deer and monkeys would come to him and people from all walks of life would seek him out for blessing. Lama Lobsang Tenzin was the founder of the Yega Choling Monastery in Tibet.

At present Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche has full responsibility of Yega Choling Monastery and it’s monks. Geshe Lama Ahbay Rinpoche is currently traveling in the West giving teachings on various aspects of Buddhism in order to gain insight into Western culture and also gathering donations to help build a new temple in Nepal which will house and educate thousands of Tibetan refugees in exile. The new monastery will feed, clothe, house and educate refugee Monks up to a University Standard.
