I have been a Buddhist from a young age which led me to eventually take ordination and endeavor to further my knowledge in my studies by attending Dzongsar Shedra. The studies undertaken at Dzongsar are mainly 13 Indian texts that are studied in the Sakya tradition institutes in and out of Tibet. The texts are all in Tibetan as are the classes and other activities. I have four more years of study to complete and each of those years, for me, will be completed as self study retreat.


In my youth I encountered the Buddhist tradition through my mother and in my coming into contact with Buddhist masters in Tibetan and other traditions over the course of over 30 years. I have found a great deal of confidence in the teachers that I have taken teachings from and as a result became ordained in 2010 and since that time have resided and studied at Dzongsar Shedra which has been instrumental in cultivating my understanding of Buddhadharma for the different yanas and furthermore into other regions of the five Buddhist sciences. As I aspire to teach in the future it is imperative for me to finish my studies here so that I may go forth and be of benefit to beings.

Main teachers

HHDL, Karmapa, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Tai Situ Rinpoche


The main purpose of this petition is to raise the necessary funds to continue my studies at Dzongsar Shedra (India), a monastic university for higher Buddhist philosophy studies. I have 4 more years of study to complete which I have been given permission by Khyentse Rinpoche to conduct in self study retreat and reside outside of the Shedra. I have completed 1 year with success and have the remaining four years of study to go until my studies are completed.


As an offering I will continue to help beings to understand the Dharma and hopefully themselves as well.
