His Eminence Gongkar Dorje Denpa Rinpoche is the head of the Dzongpa Tradition, a sub-school of the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He was born in North-east India in 1977 and recognised at the age of eight as the reincarnation of the previous Dorje Denpa by H.H. the Dalai Lama.
Having graduated from Sakya College in Dehradun with the Acharya degree in 1999 and established monasteries nearby, he was enthroned as head lama of his lineage by his main teacher, H.H. Sakya Trichen, in 2003.
Since graduation, he has undertaken extensive meditation retreats, taught the Dharma across the globe and worked tirelessly to rebuild the rare Dzongpa tradition that was at risk of dying out in Tibet. Further Information
