Raktrul Rinpoche (also known as Do Tulku) was born in 1985 in South India. At 17 years old, H.H. Sakya Trizin recognized him as the sixth Raktrul Rinpoche, a Sakya monastery’s tulku (a recognized reincarnation). He then entered the Dzongsar Khyentse Chökyi Lodro Institute, where he received his education in Buddhist philosophy, practice, and debate. After 11 years of studies, he successfully graduated with the title of Acharya. He taught in the Dzongsar Institute for a year and guided retreats for monks in Mustang as well. Moreover, he has received teachings, transmissions and initiations from some of the great masters of our time, such as H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Dagchen Rinpoche, Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, and many others. He is also a translator for the 84000 project. He is a laic master. His devotion to gurus, his way of talking about Dharma, with depth and a fresh and open style, inspires us deeply. It’s an honor being able to receive him and his family in his first visit to Europe – we feel extremely blessed that he has decided to place his trust on our young center. We are certain these will be greatly inspiring days for all of us.
