Lama Tenzin Sherab Rinpoche was born in 1953. Rinpoche grew up in the family, which belongs to the famous in Tibet family lineage Yangton - Bon Dzogchen practitioners. The highest teachings of Dzogchen Bon - Shang Shung Nengyud over hundreds of centuries passed directly under the family lineage - starting with the first king of Tibet. In the 11th-12th centuries, representatives of the family moved to Mustang and Dolpo region and built several large monasteries in the Himalayas. Samling Monastery is one of the largest and most important founded by Yangton Gyaltsen Rinchenom in the 13th century. Since then, representatives of the lineage take a responsibility of educating the teachers in this part of Nepalese Himalaya. Currently, Sherab Tenzin Rinpoche is the main Lama monastery of Samling.

At the age of five Rinpoche has mastered the instrument and learned to read and write in Tibetan. At the age of eleven Rinpoche began studying bases of traditional Tibetan medicine, studying under the guidance of one of the most respected doctors and his grandfather at the same time - Namgyal Wangdi Rinpoche. When he was fifteen years old, he began to receive patients and provide medical services. Rinpoche is widely known and respected in the Himalayas as a great spiritual teacher and physician specialized in traditional medicine.


By taking several pilgrimages to monasteries Menri and Triten Norbutse located in India and Nepal, respectively, Rinpoche received the teachings from H.H. The 33rd Menri Trizin Rinpoche and H.E. Yongdzin Lopon Tenzin Namdak Rinpoche. Sherab Tenzin Rinpoche had also many other teachers, one of them was i.a. Tsewang Lhakyab Rinpoche from Samling Monastery.

Samling Monastery and Sherab Tenzin Rinpoche personally played a vital part in preserving Yungdrung Bon after near extinction during the Cultural Revolution in China. He was instrumental in helping the main monastic centres set roots in India and Nepal. A very significant part of modern Kangyur and Tengyur, which are Words of Tonpa Shenrab Miwoche and Explications and teachings by saints and realized yogi respectively, together constituting the main scripture of Yungdrung Bon spiritual tradition, were copied from original ancient texts secretly preserved at Samling Monastery.

Outside of Tibet, Sherab Tenzin Rinpoche personally is the main lineage holder of such important spiritual teachings as Great Perfection teachings of Dzogchen Mar Tri Duknga Rangdrol and Dzogchen Rigpa Cher Tong, chod practices of Khandro Sang Chod, living tradition of Walchu ritual (wrathful waters) requiring deep practical realization of yidam Walchen Gekho, as well as other outer and inner yidams and practices more commonly practiced in Yungdrung Bon, such as Zhang Zhung Meri, Walse, Tagla Mebar, Garuda and few other practices.

In addition to that, Samling Monastery is also an important centre for study and practice of Bon Sarma, tradition of New Bon originating from Drenpa Namkha, such as Yab-Se, bringing spiritual lineages of Bon and Nyingma closer together.

As a yogi, Lama Sherab has over 30 years of personal practice in seclusion at Samling, which give him practical experiential knowledge of all the lineages and methods of spiritual practice preserved at the monastery.

As a great tantric practitioner, Lama Sherab is exceptionally knowledgeable in a multitude of rituals and rites for health and longevity, wealth, luck, purifying of all kinds of obstacles in ordinary life and in spiritual practice, expelling negative influences, etc.
