His Eminence Dagyab Kyabgoen Rinpoche belongs to the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The Dagyab Kyabgoens have been the spiritual head of the Dagyab region in Eastern Tibet, and carry the title Hothogthu Nomonhan (‘Hothogthu’ means noble, ‘Nomonhan’ refers to the King of Dharma). This title is exclusive to a group of most outstanding and highest-ranking Lamas.
Rinpoche was born on 27th July 1940 in Menya, Eastern Tibet. In 1945, Rinpoche was recognized as the reincarnation of the 9th Kyabgoen of Dagyab (Patron of Dagyab). Rinpoche studied in Drepung monastery, one of the 3 main monastic universities in Central Tibet and has also achieved the title of Geshe Lharampa (a qualification which is equivalent to the PHD degree in Indian universities), and is the highest degree in Tibetan Buddhism.
Rinpoche travels to many parts of the world to give teachings, and is especially known in the West for his practise-oriented, intensive and enthusiastic way of teaching Tantra. Rinpoche has since given Dharma teachings in many parts of the world including Holland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Brazil, America, Singapore, Malaysia, India and Tibet. In his teachings, he emphasizes the importance of practicing the Buddha Dharma in a simple way without cultural bias and he greatly encourages his students to integrate Buddhist practice into daily life. He teaches in Tibetan, English and German language.
Rinpoche is known to hold the most transmissions of the Gelugpa lineage, as well as a vast number of transmissions of the Sakya and Kagyu schools. Rinpoche himself received many teachings from different Tibetan Buddhist traditions, particularly from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and his two Tutors, as well as His Holiness Sakya Trizin and Kalu Rinpoche. He was also one of the closest students of the late Kyabje Trijiang Rinpoche, The Junior Tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Rinpoche is a one of the rare living Masters today who holds almost all the transmissions and lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.
