Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche (aka Tulku Karma) was born in a Tibetan refugee settlement in India in 1974. At the age of three he was recognized as the incarnation of Yogi Tsoru Dechen Rinpoche of Chamdho, Tibet, having been located by Gelugpa monks who were already expecting his arrival in this current life. At the age of seven, he was received at Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, India where he completed his education under his root gurus, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche. His education included advanced training in Buddhist meditation, philosophy and traditional Tibetan medicine.
Rinpoche has devoted his life to champion humanitarian efforts. He travels throughout the world teaching the Buddha Dharma (Path of Awakening), and speaking on the greater good of empowering humanity and revitalizing society. Presently, Rinpoche is overseeing various charitable programs including construction of the Children's Monastery in Mainpat, India while continuing to help establish new Dharma centers throughout the world.
