He studied Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and several languages in the Varanasi Tibetan Institute of Higher Studies in India, and received an Acharya degree. Afterwards, he completed a three year retreat under Rigzin Chogyal Rinpoche and established a retreat center in Nepal for elder practitioners. He has studied and practiced under the guidance of Tibetan Buddhist masters including H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche and H.H. Dungse Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. Gyaltsen came to the U.S. by the invitation of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche in 1996 and has helped with Buddhist education at Pema Osel Ling in Santa Cruz, CA and at Saraha Buddhist Institute in Eugene, OR.  Lama Gyaltsen has visited and taught in Arkansas, including Fayetteville, since 1998.
