E-Vam Institute is Very Pleased to be hosting
the Venerable Yangten Rinpoche!
Yangten Rinpoche was born in Kham, Tibet in 1978. He was recognised as a tulku aged 10, and enthroned at Kandze Monstery. In 1990, at the unusually young age of 12, he entered the Geshe program at Sera Mey Monastery and graduated with a Geshe Lharampa degree (with distinction) in 2007, aged only 29.
After graduation, Rinpoche joined Gyuto Monastery for 2 years and completed the traditional tantric studies there. During his time at Gyuto Monastery, Rinpoche helped His Holiness the Karmapa as a debate assistant.
In 2008 Rinpoche was called up by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to work in His Holiness’ Private Office and has assisted His Holiness on many projects, including being selected to compile a book on Buddhist Science, from the Kangyur and Tengyur.
Here is a more extensive biography of Yangten Rinpoche – PDF, composed by Tenzin Tsepag (HH the Dalai Lama’s English Translator).
