Tseten Khenpo was born in Thimpu (Bhutan) in 1974. In the early 90s, Khenpo-la joined Shechen monastery in Nepal. In 2000, he brilliantly completed his studies at the shedra (monastic college) of the monastery. Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche, abbot of Shechen, later entrusted to him the responsibility of the same shedra, which he held for three years.
In 2006, Rabjam Rinpoche instructed him to come and teach in Nyima Dzong, thus responding to the repeated requests of Ogyen Kunzang Chöling. During a visit to the monastery of Shechen in 2009, he was enthroned Khenpo (Master of studies and of monastic discipline).
Khenpo-la has over 15 years of teaching experience – he started teaching in the shedra while completing his 3d year of studies – and does a one month retreat every year. Since his arrival in France, Khenpo-la has been teaching the Buddhist philosophy and practice, conducting retreats and leading the organization of important events. He also travels frequently to teach and conduct retreats in Belgium and Portugal.
