Lama Rangbar commenced his spiritual training as a martial artist at the age 18 under the guidance of Suhu Subur Rahardja a holder of the Northern Shaolin White Crane tradition from Indonesia. Suhu as he was known as by his disciples, also held other native spiritual lineages from Java, Bali and Lombok as well as several hidden esoteric practices from Guru Padmasambhava of Tibet. Lama Rangbar started his training in the martial arts inheriting many animal and deity movement, breathing systems and sparring.  He subsequently met His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche in 1981 and studied under His Holiness and several other highly regarded Nyingmapa masters until the present day.

Lama moved to Nepal in 1990 where he lived, worked and practiced for around 20 years. Lama holds the Dudjom Tersar lineage of Vajrayana Buddhism, developing his practice over the past 30 years. Lama teaches on several topics from both of his lineages including Anu Yoga and Great Perfection (Dzog Chen) teachings.

In 2004, Lama was recognized by Tsewang Ngodrup Rinpoche from Kham Riwoche Tibet, the activity emanation of Tulku Chimed Yugyal the ritual meditation master of Ogmin Ling Dzogchen Monastery in that same region. Lama is well known for his integration of these sciences into daily life and for his fresh teaching style which is well tailored to modern western audiences, yet solidly based on the unerring authenticity of the ancient school. 

Lama has recently returned to the USA in order to establish one of the most critical monumental peace projects of our times, The Maha Bodhivastu and the Universal Heart Support Stupa. This project is a culmination of Lama Ranbar's experiences and pursuits as it relates to enlightenment for all beings.
