About H.E. the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche
His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, in 1985. In 1987, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of His Holiness the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche (1903 – 1983), who was the Principal Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
HH the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s main teacher and spiritual advisor throughout his lifetime and accompanied HH Dalai Lama when he fled into exile from Tibet in 1959. HH Dalai Lama refers to him as ‘my Root Guru’. He was also the 97th Gaden Throne Holder - the supreme head of the Gelugpa tradition, which is the largest tradition in Tibetan Buddhism.
Beginning with Charka the Arhat Udhay during the time of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha, twenty previous incarnations of H.H. the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche have been identified, including Tutors to His Holiness the 6th, 11th and 13th Dalai Lamas; the 48th and 75th Gaden Throne Holders; as well as kings, yogis, scholars, and lay adepts prominent in the spiritual histories of India and Tibet.
H.E. the 7th Ling Rinpoche has completed all five Geshe Studies subjects (Logic, Perfection of Wisdom, Middle Way, Higher Knowledge, and Monastic Discipline) and was awarded His Geshe Degree from Drepung Loseling Monastic University in South India, in November 2016. H.E. 7th Ling Rinpoche has also completed a year of further studies at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala. His Holiness the Dalai Lama continues to closely guide Him.
H.E. the 7th Ling Rinpoche has traveled to teach in many countries including in Asia and Europe, Australia, Canada, The United States, Mexico and Israel, as well as in many Tibetan settlements throughout India, Nepal and the Himalayan regions.
Rinpoche teaches in Tibetan, and there will be live translation into English.
