In the lineage of the great Yogi Milarepa, Rinpoche was recognized as the tulku (reincarnation) of one of the three main disciples of Gampopa – Dorje Gyalpo.

Rinpoche lived in Tibet until 1991 and was taught by the Karmapa, the Dalai Lama and Chatral Rinpoche and he came to the US in 2005.

It was founded by Gyaldak Rinpoche’s previous incarnation, Dorje Gyalpo nine hundred years ago. The monastery was destroyed in 1959 but was then rebuilt. Gyaldak Rinpoche went into exile in 1991 when he ant to become the student of the Dalai Lama.

After that time he continued his studies at  Kagyu Palchen Choling in Sikkhim and Palpung Sherabling Monastery in northern India, as well as studying Buddhist philosophy under His Eminence Mingyur Rinpoche.
