Venerable Archarya Jigme Lama Sean D. Young, Padma Jigme Dorje, is an authorized Lama and Dharma Teacher in the Dzogchen Lineage of Buddhism. Lama Sean has studied with his root teacher His Eminence Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche for over 19 years and has directly assisted Rinpoche with the first three editions of the Buddhist book, The Buddha Path. Lama Sean has also graduated from nine Dzogchen Lineage Internships along with many seasonal retreats beginning with the first US 10-day retreat led by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche in 2000, near Fruitland, Utah. In 2014, Lama Sean also received an advanced degree of Vajra Yoga Practitioner at the first Dzogchen Lineage Internship commencement ceremony at the Dzogchen Retreat Center USA. In the same year, Lama Sean was authorized by Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche, along with eight other Lamas, as a Venerable Archarya Lama. The Lamas were selected through a dynamic process of divination, prayer, Rinpoche’s 10-year evaluation, and a majority vote of the 2014 Dzogchen Lineage Internship Sangha.

Lama Sean’s teaching activities began with teaching introductory Buddhism courses in 2002. Since then, he has taught hundreds of students in public teaching events, university guest lectures, weekend workshops, seasonal Dzogchen Lineage retreats, and tutoring during Dzogchen Lineage Internships.

Lama Sean aspires to embody the principle of inclusiveness, dedicating his life to practicing and teaching the Dharma and serving as President of the Dzogchen Shri Singha Foundation, while being a loving husband and father, and maintaining a career as a creative professional. Lama Sean is currently supporting the publication of future editions of the Buddha Path and other texts and aspires to fulfill his teacher’s aspirations to help establish a stable Dharma system to promulgate the Dzogchen lineage throughout the world and benefit all beings.
