Khenpo Samdup was born in Kham, in the Nangchen region of Eastern Tibet, received the vows of Refuge from Garchen Rinpoche when he was seven years old, and became ordained as a monk at the age of twelve. While traveling extensively with his kind root lama, Garchen Rinpoche, to Amdo, he met another extraordinary and highly realized lama, the Revered Dzogchen master Khenpo Munsel, from whom he received direct pointing out instructions on the nature of mind.

Later, he traveled on foot for a month to the monastery of master Khenpo Jigme Puntsok in Amdo, in order to devote himself to study, contemplation, and meditation. While there for four years, he received many pith instructions, empowerments and teachings from Khenpo Jigme Puntsok and received teachings on almost all of the Twelve Great Scriptures from his main student Khenpo Tsultrim Lodro.

He also studied at Dzogsar Shedra for four years and then went to Kagyu College, where he received a graduate degree and taught for five years.

Khenpo Samdup learned that the main objective of Buddhism is to reach the state of liberation and complete omniscience and that the path that accomplishes that objective is the conduct of love and compassion, and bodhicitta, together with the view of emptiness and karmic interdependence.
