Biography

Guru in the House:

His Eminence Tritsab Rinpoche

His Eminence Tritsab Rinpoche was born in 1981 in a Tibetan exile camp in Shimla in northern India. “Rinpoche” means “the Precious One” in Tibetan and is one of the highest titles used for addressing the highest lamas in the Vajrayana Buddhism tradition, and “Tritsab” means “Regent” in Tibetan.

At an early age, Tritsab Rinpoche was recognized as the reincarnation of a great master in the Drikung Kagyu lineage, Gyara Tritsab Thubten Wangpo (1921-1979 ) who was the guiding teacher transmitting dharma teachings to the two present lineage throne holders, H.H.Drikung KyabgonChetsang Rinpoche and H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chungtsang Rinpoche, when they were young.

Following the path of great masters in the lineage Tritsab Rinpoche did his three-yearretreat from 1996 through 1999 in order to undertake the task of benefiting all sentient beings. He received numerous teachings, transmissions and empowerments from many distinguished teachers and took the full monastic ordination from H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche in 2001, and was appointed to represent H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche in handling all the administrative work of the Drikung Kagyu Order in the future.
