Lama Nygyam was born in Kham, Tibet on 22nd July 1963.
After having passed numerous years in retreat, Lama Nygyam lived in Shamar Rinpoche’s Swayambhu monastery in Nepal. Shamar Rinpoche then selected him along with eight other practitioners to carry out a ten-year Mahamudra meditation retreat, at the conclusion of which he began to direct the three-year retreat center in Parping, Nepal. At present, Lama Nygyam holds the main responsibility as retreat master of the retreat centers in Shar Minub and in Pharping.
