Ipsissimus Hideto Nakagome


At the age of 15, Ipsissimus Hideto Nakagome moved from Japan to the United States to attend high school and university, while simultaneously teaching Karate. 

He retains a Buddhist name, Karmashen Pendawa (Moonlight), which was given to him by His Holiness Galwakarpama. Hideto worked as his bodyguard which prompted him to advance his spiritual ways — one of which included esoteric training. 

In addition to Galwakarpama, he also worked as a bodyguard for His Holiness Dalai Lama twice before returning to Japan in 1993. 

With his experience in various martial arts, Esoteric Buddhism, and Kundalini Yoga, Hideto is currently active as Ipsissimus in The Modern Mystery School and as the International Chief Master Instructor of The Modern Mystery School Ensofic RayTM Institute.
