of HIGH LAMAS
of my youngest friends at KOPAN – everybody’s darling is this
completely adorable five year old lama. His name is a mouthful
– Lobasang Palmo Nawang Rinjen Gyatso – but everybody calls him
young friend was given this honorific because he has been officially
recognized as the reincarnation of the old Charuk Lama, a famous
lama also from the holy Solu Khumbu region of the Himalayas. Young
Charuk Lama speaks four languages fluently – Tibetan, Nepali,
Sherpa and English.

Lama Osel Rinpoche, the reincarnation of Rinpoche’s teacher and
mentor Lama Yeshe. Together lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa had founded
the FPMT or Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition
– an organization that today comprises over a hundred Buddhist
Meditation centers and Monasteries around the world. When Lama
Yeshe passed away, Lama Zopa Rinpoche took over as Spiritual Director
of the FPMT and carried on the work the two lamas started in the
seventies bringing Mahayana and Vajrayana teachings of Buddha
to all the countries of the world. Lama Osel is presently studying
at Sera Monastery in India.
