Born in Bhutan, the Venerable 8th Zuri Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa at two months old. At two, His Holiness presided over his enthronement ceremony in Bhutan in the presence of the Karmapa's four heart sons and many renowned Rinpoches. He was bestowed the Dharma name Karma Migyur Tenpei Gyaltshen Jigme Gocha.
At a young age, Rinpoche entered Rumtek Monastery, the Karmapa's seat in Sikkim, India, to receive intensive tradtional Buddhist education. He studied at the Karma Shri Nalanda Institute and performed brilliantly under the guidance of the Karmapa. He then proceeded to Nepal to further his studies in the three yanas, the five major treatises and the four tantras in the Namo Buddha Institute. Moreover, he studied extensively in India and Bhutan. He had also received empowerments and teachings of various lineages such as from the Kagyu masters the Very Venerable 9th Thrangu Rinpoche, the 1st Kalu Rinpoche, and the Nyingma master Tullku Urgyen Rinpoche and etc.. He started the spreading of Dharma in 1993.
A qualified lineage teacher and a great reincarnation master, the Venerable 8th Zuri Rinpoche is highly commended by His Holiness the 17th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje. Rinpoche said in his teachings that being a Rinpoche (meaning the "precious one" in Tibetan), his mission is to benefit all sentient beings for them to attain true happiness. At the same time, being a member of the "Golden Rosary" of the Karma Kagyu lineage, he is obliged to contribute to the prosperity of the Karma Kagyu Lineage and Buddhism as a whole. Committed in the Bodhisattva Path to spread the Dharma and liberate all sentient beings from samsara, Rinpoche travelled to and from Bhutan, Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan, setting up Buddhist centres, giving teachings, conducting pujas, holding retreats and animal protection activities.
