Sakyong Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche, is the head of the Shambhala Buddhist lineage and Shambhala International.

Born in Bodhgaya, India, in 1962, the Sakyong is the eldest son of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Lady Könchok Palden. He is the incarnation of Mipham the Great, a renowned Nyingma scholar and Meditation Master. As part of the Mukpo clan of eastern Tibet, he is a descendant of the Tibetan warrior-king Gesar of Ling.

He is author of the bestselling Turning the Mind into an Ally, the award-winning Ruling Your World, and Running with the Mind of Meditation. Through the SakyongFoundation, he engages in supporting organizations and projects whose activities exemplify the vision of Shambhala. He teaches all over the world, using his unique blend of Eastern and Western perspectives to the benefit of his students in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

The Sakyong, literally translated as “earth protector,” is a dharma king and lineage holder of the Shambhala lineage, guiding thousands of students around the world in the path of Meditation.

The Sakyong’s teachings show us how to use everyday life as a means to ripen this spiritual potential. We practice turning the mind toward others as a discipline that creates confidence and compassion –the ability to attain success that occurs from acting virtuously.
