Khenpo Appey 阿貝．雍登．桑波堪布（堪千阿貝仁波切）
Khenpo Appey Yönten Zangpo (Tib. མཁན་པོ་ཨ་པད་ཡོན་ཏན་བཟང་པོ་, Wyl. mkhan po a pad yon tan bzang po) (1927-2010), one of the foremost masters of the Sakya school in recent times, was a student of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö and the tutor of Sogyal Rinpoche and Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche.
At the age of nine he became a monk at Serjong Monastery, where a year later he received his first teachings from Gapa Khenpo Jamgyal, also known as Khenpo Jamyang Gyaltsen.
For nine years, from the age of 14 to 23, at Serjong Shedra, Khenpo Appey studied ‘the thirteen classical texts’ based on Khenpo Shenga’s famous annotation commentaries. During his last two years at the shedra he studied with Khenpo Dragyab Lodrö who later became the fifth khenpo at Dzongsar Shedra and wrote a commentary on the ninth chapter of the Bodhicharyavatara. After his nine years of intensive study at Serjong Shedra, Khenpo Appey went to the shedra at Dzongsar Monastery, where he was able to continue his studies under Khenpo Dragyab Lodrö for another year. He also studied with Dezhung Ajam Rinpoche.
從14到23歲的九年中，在色穹佛學院，阿貝堪布以賢嘎堪布（Khenpo Shenga）著名的註釋為基礎，研讀「十三部經典」。在色穹佛學院的最後兩年，他跟隨察雅．羅卓堪布（Khenpo Dragyab Lodrö）學習。察雅．羅卓堪布日後成為宗薩佛學院的第五任的堪布，並著有一部關於《入菩薩行論》第九品的釋論。
在色穹佛學院密集研讀九年之後，阿貝堪布前往宗薩寺的佛學院，在那裡得以繼續師從察雅．羅卓堪布再學習一年。他也曾跟隨德松．安江仁波切（Dezhung Ajam Rinpoche）學習法教。
He went to see Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö in Sikkim in 1957. He then returned to Tibet and spent time at Ngor Monastery, but left in 1959 when Tibet was lost. He went to see Jamyang Khyentse who was ill in Sikkim. After Jamyang Khyentse passed away, in accordance with his final wishes, he began to teach Sogyal Rinpoche, giving him instruction on the Bodhicharyavatara in the Palace Monastery in the presence of Jamyang Khyentse's kudung.
Later, while Sogyal Rinpoche was attending school in Kalimpong, Khenpo Appey spent one or two years in retreat in a small village in Sikkim. He was later requested to tutor Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. For this purpose, he founded the Sakya College in Barlow Ganj, Mussoorie, on 19th December 1972, the anniversary of Sakya Pandita.
In the first year, there were only seven students. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche studied there for five years. From 1972 to 1985, Khenpo Appey worked full time to look after the college and was responsible for teachings the classes, supervising the administration and raising funds.
