Khenpo Ugyen Tenzin was enrolled in the first class of Karma Shri Nalanda Institute at Rumtek with Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche and Sangyay Nyenpa Rinpoche. He received the Acharya degree from Nalanda Institute and Sampurnanand Sanskrit University, jointly, in 1991.
As a Khenpo, he taught Buddhist philosophy for six years at Nimalung Monastery in Bhutan. From 1997 to 2002, he was Senior Abbot/Principal Teacher at Nalanda Institute at Rumtek Dharma Chakra Center.
In 2016, Khenpo Ugyen completed the traditional three-year, three-month retreat under Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche at Karme Ling Retreat Center.
Commencing on Losar, the Tibetan New Year, SM KTC is pleased to announce our move to the Tibetan Arts store on 704 Santa Monica Blvd.
The store is between 7th and Lincoln, park on streets (metered) or public parking under SM Library.
Sonam, the owner, has graciously allowed us to have our weekly meetings in the beautiful surroundings of her store. We are hoping this will be an auspicious location, inviting all of you to come and hopefully attract many more to the precious teachings of the Buddha.
From now on we will meet on THURSDAYS rather than Wednesdays. This seemed to fit better with our members schedules and hopefully it will make it more convenient for all.
