The village of Tsari and the surrounding areas are among the most
sacred places in Tibet. It was there that the most Venerable Khenchen
Rinpoche Konchog Gyaltsen was born in the spring of 1946, and it was
there that he spent his early years. In 1959, because of the political
situation in Tibet , Khenpo Rinpoche fled to India with his family.
The family then settled in Darjeeling , where Rinpoche began his
education. Even at a young age, he was an excellent and dedicated
student, and was able to complete his middle school studies in less
than the average time.

At about this same time, a new university, the Central Institute of
Higher Tibetan Studies, opened in Varanasi , India . Determined to be
among its first students, Khenchen Rinpoche traveled to Varanasi , in
October 1967 to seek admission. He then began a nine-year course of
study that included Madhyamika, Abhidharma, Vinaya, the
Abhisamayalankara, and the Uttaratantra, as well as history, logic,
and Tibetan grammar. In early 1968, he had the good fortune to take
full monastic ordination from the great Kalu Rinpoche and, shortly
after graduating from the Institute, he received teachings from the
16th Gyalwa Karmapa on The Eight Treasures of Mahamudra Songs, by the
Indian mahasiddhas.

Even after completing this long and arduous course of study, Khenchen
Rinpoche wanted only to deepen his knowledge and practice of the
Dharma. With the same intensity that he brought to his earlier
studies, Rinpoche sought out and received teachings and instructions
from great Buddhist masters. One was the Venerable Khunu Lama
Rinpoche, with whom Khenchen Rinpoche studied two works of Gampopa The
Jewel Ornament of Liberation and The Precious Garland of the Excellent
Path. Rinpoche's studies with the Venerable Khunu Lama also included
Mahamudra and many of the songs of Milarepa.

In all his studies, The Jewel Ornament of Liberation is one of the
texts that Khenpo found to be most inspiring. Lord Gampopa lays out
the teachings in a clear and systematic way that is understandable to
beginners. At the same time, the work is of such profound depth that
scholars and practitioners can study it over and over and still not
fully grasp its meaning. He has said on several occasions, "Anyone who
knows the Jewel Ornament well can say that they really understand
Buddhism."

Maintaining a balance between theoretical understanding and the
practice of meditation, Khenpo Rinpoche began a three-year retreat in
1978 under the guidance of the enlightened master Khyunga Rinpoche.
During this time, he was able to deepen and enhance his understanding
of The Five-fold Path of Mahamudra and the profound Gong Chik text of
Lord Jigten Sumgon. He also received many other transmissions.

In 1985, Khenchen Rinpoche traveled to the main seat of the Drikung
Kagyu lineage, Drikung Thel, in Tibet . There, he was able to receive
personal blessings, as well as instructions and transmissions of
Mahamudra and the Six Yogas of Naropa, from the enlightened master
Venerable Pachung Rinpoche.
