Do Tulku Rinpoche


 Do Tulku is the resident Lama and spiritual guide of the "Arya Tara Buddhist Center" in Germany. When he was 17 he was recognized by His Holiness Sakya Trizin as the reincarnation of V. Raktrul Rinpoche (17th century), a master of Do Teng Monastery in eastern Tibet.

After being recognized, he followed traditional training in philosophy, practice and dialectics at the Dzongsar Khentse Chokyi Lodro Institute in India for 11 years and graduated with the title of Acharya (Lopön). He has since taught in both India and Tibetan schools, as well as leading retreats for monks. Following the instructions of Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, he teaches regularly in both Asia and Europe. He has received teachings, broadcasts and initiations from some of the most important masters of our time, including HH the Dalai Lama, HH Sakya Trizin, Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Dagchen Rinpoche, Luding Khenchen Rinpoche and many others. Do Tulku Rinpoche works as a translator in the “84,000 Project” and is a lay practitioner. He is appreciated for his cultured, interactive, fun and unconventional style of conveying Buddhist teachings.

Do Tulku has a very fresh and modern approach to the teaching of the Buddha, he is faithful to what has been handed down to him by his main teacher Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, abbot in an institute in Bir in India, where Do Tulku received the title of Lopon (Acharya). Do Tulku is a pupil very close to Dzongsar Khyentse Rnpoche who is the author of the book “Are you sure you are not a Buddhist?” (Feltrinelli). Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche is considered one of the most innovative lamas on the Buddhist scene today and has an extraordinary way of bringing teaching into our everyday life, urging us to go beyond the superficiality or trivialization of Buddhism.


The Bodhisattva Project

Do Tulku started a teaching project on the ancient texts of India and started with the very famous text "The Way of the Bodhisattva" ( Bodhisattvacharyavatara)  by Shantideva. It is doing this with internet meetings in which anyone can participate upon registration. At the center we have already made two withdrawals on the text and we intend to make another as soon as the pandemic is over. You can contact them directly to enroll in the course which is in English.
