Lama Zopa Rinpoche was born in 1946 in Thami, in the Mount
Everest region of Nepal, not far from the Lawudo cave where
his predecessor had meditated for the last 20 years of his
life. Lama Zopa Rinpoche is now the Spiritual Director of
the Foundation for the preservation of the Mahayana Tradition
and oversees all of its activities.
