☸Kyabje Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche Karma Rangjung Kunkhyab was born in the Hor region of Kham, eastern Tibet, in 1905. He received monastic ordination in the Palpung monastery (Tibet) by Tai Situ Rinpoche at the age of thirteen, receiving the name of Karma Rabjung Kunkhyab. At the age of sixteen, he entered the large retreat center of Tsadra Rinchen Drak, the headquarters of Djamgön Lodrö Thaye, where he completed the three-year and three-month retreat.
☸At the age of twenty-five, he gave up all things, family ties, material comforts, etc. He lived in solitary mountain retreats in Lhapu, in the Derge region, and in various other places. For twelve years, he practiced the strictest asceticism with all the force of perseverance. Subsequently, at the direction of Situ Pema Wangchug, he returned to Palpung and served for a period of many years as a retreat master and lama of the two retreat centers, Naro Ling and Nigu Ling.
☸Over a period of several years, he maintained, protected, and propagated the teachings. He established new retreat centers for the teachings of the Kamtsang and Shangpa traditions and built new stupas. In 1966, Rinpoche moved to Samdrub Darjey Chöling Monastery in Sonada, Darjeeling District, India.
