LELUNG RINPOCHE'S LIFE STORY

Much of Rinpoche's life has been dedicated to the rescue and preservation of precious texts and teachings of his lineage. He has travelled widely in search of lost manuscripts and oral teachings that had almost entirely disappeared. He is also an accomplished scholar, having received his geshe degree at Drepung Monastery at the age of 24. Rinpoche now divides his time between London and Dharamsala.
