From his own personal retreat practice, Tulku Osel Dorje has gained a strong appreciation for the importance of developing a deep understanding of the philosophical side of Buddhist study, while bringing it to life through meditation experience.

Inspired by stories of realized masters of the past, Tulku Osel Dorje has spent time traveling throughout the Himalayas meditating in the sacred caves and power places of Guru Rinpoche. Cumulatively he has done 4 years strict retreat, he's completed multiple ngöndros (the foundational practices) and as a wandering yogi, he completed a traditional 108 charnel ground chod pilgrimage in Ladakh. Throughout his retreats he has been guided by his root teachers A.dzom Paylo Rinpoche, Sang-ngag Rinpoche, and his mother Lama Tsultrim Allione. He is enthusiastic about Buddhist Philosophy, Tibetan Buddhist history, and biographies of realized yogis and yoginis. He holds a Master’s degree in Buddhist Studies from Kathmandu University and is currently working on a PhD. Tulku Osel Dorje was enthroned as the Dorje Gyaltsab (Vajra Regent) of Tara Mandala in 2019.
