Tsering Ngodup

Tsering Ngodup is a lama, or Tibetan Buddhist teacher, who was authorized to teach by the 14th Shamar Rinpoche. Tsering Ngodup has devoted over twenty years to sharing the religious and spiritual teachings of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. He has traveled across the world, translating and interpreting Buddhist teachings for highly accomplished Tibetan lamas and masters from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism, Nyingma, Gelukpa, Sakya, and Kagyu. In this process, he has received many teachings and transmissions in both sutra and tantra (Vajrayana). Through this experience, he has acquired knowledge and insight which the 14th Shamar Rinpoche recognized and asked him to share through teaching.
