Tulku Dawa Gyalpo Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and His Holiness Penor Rinpoche as the authentic reincarnation of the previous Shidag Rinpoche Orgyan Pema Rangdrol. At the age of 6 he joined His Holiness Penor Rinpoche’s Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, South India. Upon finishing the basic monastic education at Namdroling, he joined the famed Ngagyur Nyingma Institute and completed the nine-year course in both sutra and tantra.
Upon graduation, he was appointed as the head of the Tsogyal Shedrup Dhargyeling nunnery and at the same time taught at the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute. Apart from his Root Guru, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, he also received many empowerments, transmissions, and instructions from lamas of all sects of Tibetan Buddhism. At present he lives and teaches in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
