The Late Kyabje Zong Rinpoche was a great scholar and tantra master of the Gelugpa lineage, and known as an emanation of the Buddha Heruka Chakrasamvara. After his exile from Tibet, Zong Rinpoche was appointed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as principal of the Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies at Varanasi, India. First invited to the West by Lama Thubten Yeshe in 1978, Zong Rinpoche had many Western students.

Kyabje Zong Rinpoche is the root Guru of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche, when they met at Thubten Dargye Ling (TDL) Dharma centre in Los Angeles. During Kyabje Zong Rinpoche’s 6-month stay at TDL, Tsem Rinpoche served Zong Rinpoche daily and tirelessly, a supreme example of Guru devotion.

The previous Zong Rinpoche passed away in 1984 at Gaden Shartse, where he was once abbot. His current incarnation now resides in Gaden Shartse monastery, where he is studying and preparing once again to continue turning the wheel of Dharma.
