The Ven. Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche is the sixth Reincarnation in the supreme Nedo Kuchung lineage. The present Nedo Kuchung Rinpoche was born on August 2, 1962 in Pema Thang. In 1972, at the age of 10, His Holiness, the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpe Dorje recognized him without any doubt as the incarnation of Shedrub Nyedun Chokyi Sengge, the previous Nedo Rinpoche, and gave him the name Karma Thinley Yongdu Kunchab Palzangpo. The same year, in Tashi Jong in Himachal Pradesh, His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche formally recognized him and offered him the robes and his title. Rinpoche's main teachers were H.H. 16th Karmapa, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Ven. Riwa Saljay Rinpoche, and Ven. Urgyen Tulku. In 1982, at the age of 23, he went back to Rumtek Monastery to join a three-year retreat. At the age of 25, coming out from his successful retreat, he was enthroned as the Vajra Master of Rumtek Monastery. Today Nedo Rinpoche is the main Vajra Master of H.H. the 17. Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje. Rinpoche stayed in Rumtek monastery until 1993. Than he moved to the residence of Shamar Rinpoche, where his responsibilities included taking care of the monks and their education. After discussing with Shamar Rinpoche in 1996 he bought a piece of land nearby and started to build his own residence and meditation place. Today Nedo Rinpoche’s responsibilities include taking care of Shamar Rinpoche’s monks as well as the activities of the Karma Kagyu lineage in Sikkim for H.H. the 17. Gyalwa Karmapa Thaye Dorje. After paranirvana of H.H the 16th Karmapa and H.H. the late Shamar Rinpoche, the second highest int the Kagyu lineage to the Karmapa, Nedo Rinpoche has dutifully followed their instruction and guidience in serving thel Karma Kagyu Lineage up to the present.

No religion is more important than human happiness
The main goal of Buddhist methods is to benefit others and oneself. If we act for the benefit of others, we are sure to enrich ourselves as well.
The more freedom from our emotions we have, the more rich and compassionate our mind is
We just have to remind ourselves that the source for any happiness is mind itself
