Lama Loppon Tsering Samdup is one of the few English speaking Tibetan Buddhist teachers in Australia. He was appointed a resident teacher of the Sakya Yigah Choeling centre in South Australia in 2000. Since then he has been teaching and leading retreats in various places around Australia and has now relocated to the Northern Beaches area of Sydney.

Loppon Tsering completed all studies of monasticism, Sutra and Tantra at Sakya College (one of the most prestigious Buddhist Universities) and has done many retreats. The title ‘Loppon’ is approximately equivalent to between a Master’s and a Doctor’s philosophy degree. Loppon also successfully completed a translation course at Dharamsala. He taught Buddhist philosophy to monks at his home monastery at Bir in India and traveled overseas with high Lamas as an interpreter on several occasions. Loppon is a highly qualified scholar and meditation master.

He possesses great compassion and wisdom. These qualities make his teachings profound and spiritual. Loppon is a very sociable character and very easy to approach. He has a good command English and teaches with a great sense of humor. He has a deep understanding of the Western mind. His teachings are clear, practical, enjoyable and profound.

Loppon’s activities have included giving teachings, running meditation classes, public talks, counseling, interviews, prayers, presiding over ceremonies, language classes and supervising retreats.



Founded by Loppon Tsering, Sakya Kechari Institute will provide the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha on developing the mind to bring more happiness and peace to our lives. Our vision is to provide both spiritual and social programs and practices that help us to develop the skills we need to find perfect happiness in every moment of our experience. Even though we are living in this material world, we can learn how to greatly enhance and make our lives meaningful through the teachings of the Buddha. The teachings and meditation are suitable for everyone, from beginners to advanced practitioners. Everyone, including non-Buddhists are welcome, as these teachings have universal application to relieve our suffering and bring about a peaceful state of mind.
