Do Tulku Rinpoche

Do Tulku Rinpoche is the resident lama and spiritual guide of the center. He was recognized by H.H. Sakya Trichen at the age of 17 as the reincarnation of the 5th Raktrul Rinpoche. His incarnation line goes back to the 1st Raktrul Rinpoche (17th century), a master of the Do Teng Monastery in East Tibet. After his recognition, he received an eleven-year training in Buddhist philosophy, practice, and debate at the Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Institute in India, from which he graduated with the title of an Acharya (Lopön). Since then, he has been teaching there as well as in Tibetan schools and guided monks’ retreats. Following the instructions of his teacher, he now teaches regularly in Asia and Europe. He himself received teachings, transmissions, and initiations from some of the greatest masters of our time, including H.H. Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Dagchen Rinpoche, Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, and many more. Do Tulku Rinpoche works as a translator in the 84,000 project ( and is a lay practitioner. He lives with his family in Germany where he teaches regularly. He is appreciated for his learned, interactive, and often unconventional, humorous way of communicating the Buddhist teachings.
