After his parents fled the Chinese invasion of Tibet, he received training from both Buddhist and Bön teachers, attaining the degree of Geshe, the highest academic degree of traditional Tibetan culture.

in Europe and America.

Rinpoche has an intense interest in the interpretation, control and application of dreams and has written fairly extensively on lucid dreaming and the yoga of the dream state.
