H. E. Khangser Rinpoche: Rebirth, Meditation, and the Path to Joy (#188)


This episode of the Wisdom Podcast features H. E. Khangser Rinpoche. At the age of five, H. E. Khangser Rinpoche was recognized as the eighth reincarnation of Khangser Rinpoche. By 2005, he had earned both the Geshe Lharampa degree and a doctorate in tantra, both with the highest honors in the top division. Rinpoche is a great scholar who has achieved mastery in both the Gelug and Nyingma Buddhist traditions. In 2023, Rinpoche came in line to one day become the Gaden Tripa, the supreme head of the Gelug lineage, which is considered the largest school in Tibetan Buddhism. 

In this episode, host Daniel Aitken and Rinpoche discuss:

  • his book A Monk’s Guide to Finding Joy;
  • the seventh Khangser Rinpoche and the search for the Dalai Lama;
  • becoming a recognized Tulku and the importance of past life memories;
  • the importance of debate and reasoning in Buddhist philosophy; and
  • much more!

Be sure to keep up with Rinpoche’s work and events:
