TseWong Sitar Rinpoche began his dharma studies at age 4, under the tutelage of his father, the renowned Lama Kunzang Gargyi Wangchug, also known as Lopön Gyelpo. From him he learned the basics of Buddhadharma, as well as the system of Longchen Nyingtik. Furthering his studies with Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and Dodrup Chen Rinpoche, he was recognized as the incarnation of Nubchen Sangye Yeshe, heart disciple of Padmasambhava. He also learned the cho system of the great female cho master, Shugsep Rinpoche (Rigdzin Chonyi Wangmo) from this father, who was her direct disciple.http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos- ... 6418_n.jpg
Subsequently, he had the great fortune to meet the Treasure revealor and meditation master, Pegyal Lingpa. From this enlightened yogi of the non-monastic lineage, he received the entire cycle of his terma, the Kusum Gongdu (the Three Kayas of the Guru’s Mind). On his passing, Tsewong Rinpoche became his successor and lineage holder, as confirmed by Kyentse Rinpoche and Dodrup Chen.
Under the great yogin Lama Naljor Rinpoché, he trained in the highest teachings of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection. Spending more than twenty years in strict meditative retreat, Rinpoche was able to bring the profound practices of subtle energy and Dzogchen to full fruition.
Now head of the historic Sangye Teng monastery in Bhutan, founded by Sangye Lingpa and subsequently the seat of Ratna Lingpa and Pema Lingpa.
Rinpoche and his lamas specialize in the practice of chö, including the complete systems of Machik, Nyingthig and Dudjom. His father was also a direct disciple Shuksep (Ani Lochen) Rinpoche, the great female cho master of the 20th century, and Rinpoche is a holder of all these teachings and practices.http://www.machikcholing.com/our-teache ... -rinpoche/
