Our master, Acharya Guru Karma Tanpai Gyaltshen Rinpoche, was born in Tibet at holy Mountain Kailash – Secret Divine Palace of Almighty God Shiva Narayan and Goddess Uma Devi – with auspicious signs of bringing peace and unity for the world.
At the age of six Master accompanied his beloved parents on pilgrimage to Nepal (birthplace of Lord Buddha) where he received important religious empowerment and teachings from the Lord of Dharma H.E. the 1st Drubsing Rinpoche and many other honorable teachers and became the citizen of beautiful Nepal.
In 1969, at young age, Master went to join the renown Sanskrit University in Varanasi, great India, where he spent ten years studying Buddhist, Hindu and other divine religious philosophies and teachings.
Through his actions, Master shows the example of most humane and selfless love for all sentient beings; through his teachings, he encourages everyone to get rid of anger, selfishness and negative emotions; and develop loving compassion by practicing tolerance and forgiveness; and ultimately, to cultivate the universal loving heart and wisdom of enlightenment.
Master strongly underlines that religious practice must purely and selflessly focus on the liberation and service of all sentient beings and it should remain free of politics and business interest. Most importantly, he emphasizes the unity of all religions and mankind by pointing at the essence of all religions, and urges everyone to help the world to find universal lasting peace and liberation and protect all human beings.
