Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche

Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche

Tibetan Buddhist

Rinpoche is recognised by His Holiness The Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of hermit Lama Ahbay Lobsang Tenzin Rinpoche and head of the Yega Choling Monastery, which makes him responsible for many monks based in exile in South India.

 Ahbay Rinpoche gives so much to everyone he meets as he travels the world, spreading his wisdom of loving kindness and compassion (and his infectious laughter). Therefore we feel it is essential for us to give back to him to support him to carry on his incredible work to help reduce the great suffering in the world.”

“Geshe Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche’s Story

Ahbay Rinpoche was born in Darjeeling, India, in 1973 (in exile from Tibet), and in 1980, when he was seven years old, he became a monk at Gaden Jangtse Monastery in South India.

After 2 years of being at the Monastery at 9 years old, in 1982, he took vows to become fully initiated into monkhood under the tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Khabche Ling Rinpoche who gave him the name Thupten Tendar.

In 1985, when he was twelve, His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognised him as the reincarnation of the hermit Lama Ahbay Lobsang Tenzin Rinpoche, who lived in a cave and was famous for his supernatural powers. In the same year, he was enthroned as Lama Ahbay Tulku Rinpoche Jigme Thupten Tendar in the Gaden Jangtse Monastery in South India.
