After their nine year education Khenpos are required to serve on behalf of their monasteries for at least three years. In Khenpo Dawé Paljor's case he taught for four years on Vajrayana, Tibetan grammar and other subjects. After teaching at the nunnery in Namdroling for a year he went back to teach at the Shedra where he was a former student, before leaving for Dzogchen Monastery in south India where he taught for another year.
In the last three years he has been teaching at Kyabjé Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's Shechen Monastery where his main subject has been Longchenpa's Finding Comfort and Ease in the Nature of Mind (Tib. Semnyi Ngalso, Wyl. sems nyid ngal gso). Upon leaving Shedra East Khenpo will return to Shechen to continue to teach.
Besides his root teacher, Kyabjé Penor Rinpoche, he has been studying with Dzetrul Rinpoche, Khenpo Namdrol and Khenpo Pema Sherab. On one occasion he also received a long life empowerment from Kyabjé Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. (Source: Rigpa Shedra)
