Venerable Acharya Lama Migmar Tseten was born in 1956 at Chimdok, Gyaltse in Central Tibet. He left Tibet with his family in 1959 and resettled in South India. In 1970, he became a monk and joined the Tibetan Institute at Sarnath, Varanasi, where he studied Sutrayana (Hinayana and Mahayana)  Buddhist philosophy and Tibetan literature, as well as Sanskrit, English and history, under the late Sakya Khenpo Rinchen and the Khenpos from Gelug, Nyingma, Kagyu, and Indian masters.  He achieved the position of first among his class of students from the four lineages every year, for nine years. In 1980, he received the Acharya degree and His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognized his achievement with a special gift of a brocade scarf, silver medal and a Bodhicaryavatara text.
