Teacher Bio

Khentrul Lodrö Thayé Rinpoche was born in Tibet. He became a monk at age seven and spent his life studying Buddhist philosophy, meditation and techniques for working with the mind.

During his training he received three Khenpo degrees — a Khenpo is equivalent to a PhD — from the most prominent Buddhist universities in the world, including directly from His Holiness Khenchen Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche at Larung Gar, and from Kyabje Padma Norbu Penor Rinpoche at Namdroling. 

He is the abbot of a monastery in Eastern Tibet, and has been teaching in the West since 2002. He oversees more than twenty meditation groups across the United States and Canada and travels the world to lecture at universities, institutions, and private organizations.

Rinpoche is an environmentalist and an advocate of vegetarianism. His teachings focus on changing oneself as a way to change the world.
