BIOGRAPHY:

His Eminence the 7th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in India on November 18, 1985. He was taken to the Tibetan Children’s Village in Dharamsala, after his mother died, and stayed there until His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of his Principal Teacher, H.H. the 6th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who passed away in 1983.

The 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche entered Drepung Monastic University in South India in 1990 when he was five years old and began his monastic studies there at the age of ten. Rinpoche received his Geshe degree in November 2016 and enrolled at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala, India in April 2017 for a year of tantric studies that traditionally follows the completion of a Geshe degree. He completed his studies in February 2018. During his studies, the 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche spent periods of time in retreat.

In 1991 Ling Rinpoche gave his first teaching in South Korea. Since then he has given teachings and tantric initiations in many countries in Asia and Europe, Canada, the United States, Mexico, Israel, Australia and Mongolia as well as Tibetan settlements throughout India and Nepal and Himalayan regions including Ladakh and Mon Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh). Rinpoche has also organized and attended many important Buddhist events.

H.E. Ling Rinpoche organized His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s historic series of Jangchup Lamrim teachings on the 18 classic Stages of the Path to Enlightenment treatises. They were held at Sera, Drepung, Ganden and Tashi Lhunpo monasteries between 2012 and 2015 with approximately 40,000 people from 65 to 70 countries attending each year.

Starting in 2004, H.E. Ling Rinpoche also participated in the Mind and Life Institute dialogues held in India between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and scientists on a variety of topics, such as physics, neuroplasticity and destructive emotions. In 2005, Rinpoche has attended international events dedicated to preserving Buddhist traditions, including the World Peace Puja in Bodhgaya, India and in 2011, the International Conference on Vinaya in Varanasi in 2011. In 2017, H.E. Ling Rinpoche joined His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other Buddhist leaders at a three-day International Buddhist Conference on “The Relevance of Buddhism in the 21st Century”, organized by the Indian Government Ministry of Culture and the Nava Nalanda Mahavihara.

In November 2012 while driving to Goa Airport to greet His Holiness the Dalai Lama, who had arrived to give Jangchup Lamrim teachings, Ling Rinpoche was in a serious car accident that included a fatality. Rinpoche sustained severe injuries that required lengthy surgeries and his complete recovery took several years.
