Goshir Paljor Dondrub was born at Nyemo Yakteng in Central Tibet.

He came into the care of the sixth Karmapa, Tongwa Donden, at the age of five, and at the age of fourteen Karmapa appointed Paljor Dondrub as his secretary.

He then put the young boy in the care of Shamar Chopal Yeshe, Nyak Pokpa Sonam Zangpo and Benkar Jampal Zangpo.

From these three masters he received his religious education and training. He became the guru of the seventh Karmapa, Chodrag Gyamtso.
