Course description
Gateway to Knowledge
Gateway to Knowledge is a very important text traditionally studied by Kagyu and Nyingma Shedras. Traleg Rinpoche began a Shedra at E-Vam Institute in Melbourne in 2010 and gave a thorough presentation of this text to his Shedra students. Before Rinpoche passed into Parinirvana, he expressed his wish that his students continue with the study of all four volumes of Gateway to Knowledge, and by doing so his students will have a solid foundation of Buddhist knowledge on which they can build their further education upon. Khenpo Ugyen has kindly accepted Traleg Khandro's invitation to continue the commentary of this text.

Beacon of Certainty
For the last several years, Traleg Rinpoche has been giving commentary on Mipham Rinpoche's Beacon of Certainty to his New York students. Khenpo Ugyen will be continuing this commentary for E-Vam New York.

For centuries, Dzogchen - a special meditative practice to achieve spontaneous enlightenment - has been misinterpreted by both critics and malinformed meditators as being purely mystical and anti-rational. In the grand spirit of Buddhist debate, 19th Century Buddhist philosopher Mipham wrote Beacon of Certainty, a compelling defense of Dzogchen that imploys the very logic it was critized of lacking.

Khenpo Ugyen Tenzin completed his studies and received an Acharya degree (Master of Buddhist Studies) from Karma Nalanda Institute and Sampurnanand Sanskrit University jointly in March 1991. On the 23rd March of the same year, he was appointed Junior Khenpo (Professor) by His Eminence Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche and His Eminence Goshir Gyaltsap Rinpoche. Less than a month later, he was sent to Nimalung Monastery in Bhutan as a Khenpo, where he taught Buddhist philosophy for six years. Khenpo Ugyen is currently residing at His Holiness Karmapa's American Seat, Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in Woodstock, upstate New York.
