Maniwa Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche – highly respected Lama of Kagyu lineage. Maniwa is the title given to a master who does Chenrezig practice and has repeated at least a billion of OM MANI PEME HUNG mantras.

Rinpoche was inaugurated in Rumtek by 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, Randjung Rigpe Dorje. Being an exceedingly gifted desciple Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche mastered many aspects of traditional Buddhist Teaching including Sutras and Tantras, rituals and music, sciences, art and literature.

Recently he came out of three-year retreat supervised by Bokar Rinpoche. Since then Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche supports Kagyu lineage activity, devoting himself to the practice, as well as continuously giving transmission and teachings to the students.
