Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro

Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro is a venerable contemporary Nyingma teacher of Tibetan Buddhism based at Larung Gar, where he serves as a standing Vice Principal in charge of teaching for all the Tibetan monks and nuns, tens of thousand of them. Over the last two to three decades he has trained a large cohort of outstanding monastic students, many of whom are now teaching all around the world. 

Khenpo’s teachings is well structured and organized, easy to understand yet with profound meanings. Khenpo is really good at referring to scientific studies and examples, explaining arcane dharma theories using languages and terminologies modern people are familiar with, hence Khenpo is very popular among the intellectuals. Khenpo also put equal emphasis on both theories and practices, always coupled the explanation of theories with corresponding guidance for practices.

In terms of his own practice and realization, Khenpo started practicing the highest level of Nyingmapa tantra meditation since he was 24, and his practice achievements and realization were recognized and verified three times on a one by one basis personally by his master H.H. Jigme Phunstok Rinpoche, who founded the Larung Gar and passed away in 2004.

Khenpo also has many publications in Tibetan and Chinese, and some have been translated into English. Among all the publications, the 10-volume series "Luminous Wisdom" is acclaimed as a Buddhism masterpiece which can stand the test of time, from theory to practice, with rigorous sequencing, and encompassing both sutra and tantra in harmony. The content of the series is very practical, the language is concise yet penetrating, tailoring to the needs of the modern audience and practitioners, hence becoming widely accepted and very popular.
