Rinpoche completed his studies at Drepung Monastery at the age of 24 when he received a Geshe degree. This is one of the highest degrees given in the Gelugpa tradition. It is rarely awarded to a student of such a young age.

In 1993, Lelung Rinpoche met the only master alive who held the complete teachings of Dakini Sangwa Yeshe before they were forever lost. Rinpoche received the oral transmission from him. To carry on this precious lineage of teachings, he founded Lelung Dharma Trust in 2000.

Rinpoche divides his time between London, where he teaches and directs the work of Lelung Dharma Trust and his office in Dharamsala where he oversees the work of the Lelung Lineage Preservation Centre.
