Chogyal Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist master of the Karma Kagyu Lineage, who graduated with a Khenpo degree in Buddhist Philosophy in 2010. He teaches Buddhist philosophy, mediation, and mantra chanting in many countries including Nepal, Switzerland, Germany, China, India, Thailand, Malaysia, and the United States. He also offers a three-year study and meditation program, called the Repa-Program, which is suitable for lay practitioners.
Chogyal Rinpoche has recorded five CDs with 15 Tibetan Mantras, which he uses during his courses and lectures for their healing powers.
At the age of 16, Chogyal Rinpoche founded his first nonprofit organization, the Sertshang Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal, which is now home to 63 children. Since then he has founded other nonprofit and service efforts, including the music academy, My Peace, in Kalimpong, India, to give children from poor families the opportunity to learn to play musical instruments; the Tibetan Medical Institute, to help people in Yushu, Tibet; and Bodhisattva in Action (BIA), to improve the employment opportunities and quality of life of people with disabilities, as well as delivering disaster relief materials, food, emergency shelters, health-care facilities, and medicine to as many Nepali people as possible.
Chogyal Rinpoche has traveled to more than 20 different countries to study different cultures and religions such as Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, and Sikhism. He aims to develop and foster a better understanding of global religions and spiritual practices.
He is currently pursuing a diploma in psychology in Zurich, Switzerland, and just recently started his studies in social psychology at Harvard University. He is actively engaged in exploring and combining scientific research and methodologies with religious practices and doctrines in order to help as many people as possible to overcome inner obstacles.
