Bamda Tubten Gelek
Born in the village of “Bamda,” a few kilometers from Tsangwa Monastery in the Dzamthang valley of Amdo, Bamda Tubten Gelek Gyatso was educated within the Jonang tradition at Dzamthang from the time he was a child. As a young man, Bamda Lama then traveled to the Derge district of Kham in eastern Tibet and became immersed in the Rime eclectic movement. While in Kham, he studied closely with Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye (1813-99) and Dzogchen Patrul Rinpoche (1880-87).
