Tulku Sherdor is the founder of the Blazing Wisdom Institute and the Rimay Monlam Tibetan Peace Prayer Gathering. A dharma teacher for 25 years, he may well be the most accomplished non-native chant master in the entire Tibetan Buddhist world today, earning the admiration of great chant masters at monasteries in Tibet and Nepal. Tulku became a close disciple of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche in Nepal in 1981. In 1990, he completed a traditional 40-month intensive Lama training retreat established by Kalu Rinpoche, during which he served as the chant master for the retreatants, and followed that with a year-long, very strict solitary retreat in the Chogling treasure lineage. Tulku has served and studied under many of the recent great masters of the practice traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and is a frequent presenter at the ashram.
