Vajra Regent Ösel Tendzin
Dharma Heir of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

 

Born in the United States, Ösel Tendzin was confirmed as the first-generation Westerner to hold the lineages of the Karma Kagyü and Nyingma schools of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. Alongside his teacher, Trungpa Rinpoche, the Vajra Regent taught extensively  throughout North America and Europe, and together they founded Shambhala Training.
