Rinpoche is the son and spiritual heir of the late Kyabje Kunzang Dechen Lingpa. Rinpoche received his early training from his father, the renowned Himalayan Buddhist saint Kyabje Kunzang Dechen Lingpa. Fully trained in the profound practice of Chod and in the course of Yeshe Lama, Rinpoche spent many years in retreat practicing the most profound meditation and yogic techniques, enabling him to not only reveal buddhanature for himself but for others as well.

Rinpoche is responsible for the training and care of over 150 monks and 125 nuns in Assam, one of the most beautiful but most impoverished regions of the world.
