The highly venerated Tenzin Tsultrim Palden also known as Khangser Rinpoche (which means yellow house) was born in 1975.
In 1980, he was recognized as the 8th reincarnation of Khangser Rinpoche. It is known that the 7th incarnation of Khangser Rinpoche was one of the three highly respected lamas who were responsible for locating the 14th reincarnation of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
In 1992, Khangser Rinpoche obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Buddhist philosophy upon completing Pharchin Ramjampa from the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics.
