Kyabje Sey Rinpoche now supports the Chimed Drupay Gastel monastery in Manali. He gives spiritual advices to Drukpa communities from the north of the Himalayan India.
His Eminence has become one of the main Drukpa masters training the yogis and giving advanced spiritual advices to the practitioners of the lineage, more peculiarly on the Six Yogas of Naropa.
He teaches abroad for the new comers to the Drukpa lineage and to the Shakya Sri lineage. He helps His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa for the preservation of the 800 years old Drukpa lineage’s legacy and for the spreading of its formidable blessings.
