Yangten Rinpoche was born in Tibet, in the traditional region of Kham, in 1978. He was recognized as a tulku when he was 10 years old, and inducted into Kandze Monstery. At the age of 12, Rinpoche entered the Geshe program at Sera Mey Monastery in India, where he graduated with a Geshe Lharampa Diploma (with distinction) in 2007, at the age of 29. Rinpoche then joined the Gyuto Monastery for two years, where he completed traditional Tantric studies. In 2008, he was called by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to work in His Holiness's private office, where he worked on numerous projects.

“Over the past few years, we have been fortunate to develop a wonderful relationship with Yangten Rinpoche through his online teachings on Lama Tsongkhapa’s Song of Experience,” said Losang Wangyel. “For my part, I was particularly moved by the power and compassion of Rinpoche’s guidance as he answered the students’ candid questions. »

The London Jamyang Buddhist Center was established in 1978 to facilitate the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism following the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The center is also affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) under the spiritual guidance of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and offers a structured program of courses and classes in Buddhist philosophy and practice.
