The Sakyong, Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche is Tibetan Buddhist lama. He is also a poet and artist, and an athlete who runs marathons to raise money in support of Tibet and its people.

Sakyong Mipham is the son of the much-loved, but controversial Tibetan Buddhist teacher, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Sakyong Mipham is considered to be an incarnation of Mipham the Great, an important historical teacher of Buddhism in Tibet.

He was born in Bodh Gaya, India, the site of the Buddha's enlightenment. He studied meditation with many of the great modern Buddhist teachers and lineage holders. As a young man, his father brought him to Europe and North America to further his education.

His title "The Sakyong" means literally "Earth Protector," and he is the head of the Shambhala tradition that emphasizes courage in the spiritual journey through earthly life. He is a lineage holder of both the Kagyu and Nyingma traditions.

He is married and teaches a path of enlightenment through engagement with daily life.
