About Lama Tenam

Lama Tenam became a monk when he was 8 year old and received novice ordination from HH 16th Karmapa and full ordination from the Second Jamgon Kongtrul. He graduated first in his class in both his undergraduate and graduate Buddhist studies. He also studied many of the fundamental Tibetan Buddhist texts with the VV Khunnu Lama Tenzin Gyaltsen Rinpoche who is one of the teachers to HH the Dalai Lama.

Lama Tenam joined the Palpung Sherabling Monastery in 1983 after completing his graduate school studies at Varanasi Sanskrit University. He spent 6 months with V V Saljay Rinpoche who is a teacher to many great high Lamas and Retreat Masters of the Monastery. Since then he has served as personal executive secretary to Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche. He also received complete transmissions of the 8 major lineages of Vajrayana Buddhism and detailed instructions on the three main Mahamudra texts by the 9th Karmapa from his root Guru, Chamgon Tai Situ Rinpoche. He also received many personal instructions from HH 17th Gyalwang Karmapa from 2000-2002.
