Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche

Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche was born in the Kingdom of Bhutan in 1918 and was one of the last great meditation masters. When he was 13 years old he left Bhutan to study and practice under the spiritual guidance of his uncle Lama Sherab Dorje in Nepal. 

There he received full dharma training and meditated under severe conditions in caves  and in holy Buddhist places. In 1944 the Rinpoche met H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa who became one of his most important masters.

In the years to follow, Lopon Tsechu Rinpoche became the key figure for dharma practitioners in Nepal and Europe. He was the first and one of the most remarkable teachers of Lama Ole Nydahl and his wife Hannah. He visited Europe in 1987. Since then he traveled extensively throughout Europe, the Americas and Australia giving teachings and countless initiations. He completed the construction of the  Kalachakra Stupa in Spain and more than 16 other stupas in Europe and Asia. Lopon Tchechu Rinpoche’s last project, the Enlightenment Stupa in Benalmadena, Spain, is the crown jewel of his life’s work. The Rinpoche passed away on June 10th 2003 at the age of 85, four months before the inauguration of this magnificent project.
