Lopön Tsechu Rinpoche (1918–2003) was born and lived in Bhutan until he was 13 years old. At that point he left Bhutan to study and practice under the spiritual guidance of his uncle Lama Sherab Dorje in Nepal. There he received full Buddhist training and meditated under severe conditions in the caves of Milarepa and in the holy places of Guru Rinpoche. In 1944, Rinpoche met H.H. the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa, who became one of Rinpoche’s most important masters.
