Sogyal Rinpoche

Book for an event


Sogyal Rinpoche was born in Tibet and entered a monastery when he was six months old. He received the traditional training of a Tibetan lama from one of the most outstanding Buddhist masters of the 20th century, Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö, who raised him like his own son. After fleeing Tibet with his family, Rinpoche was educated in India and Cambridge, England. Since then he has taught throughout the world, developing a unique ability to attune the Tibetan Buddhist teachings to modern life. He is the spiritual director of Rigpa, an organisation devoted to presenting the teachings of the Buddha and to offering support and advice on spiritual care to those facing loss, illness or death, as well as their families and caregivers.
