The article which appeared in the Harrow Observer in February 2007 is now available online. It first appeared under the title Holy Lama is Peaceful Pinner Neighbour. It also appeared in the Harrow Leader and the Ruislip & Northwood Gazette (pictured left). Interviewed by reporter Dhurti Shah, Rinpoche described his early life in India, his time at Drepung Monastery and his current work in the UK. This includes the Geden Phacho Bhucho project to preserve endangered teaching lineages from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. An excerpt from the article:
Lelung Rinpoche is on a mission to save Tibetan culture and artefacts from extinction. An esteemed lama and teacher, he spoke to chief reporter Dhruti Shah about his life so far and how he has ended up living in Pinner. Lelung Rinpoche finds Pinner a lot wetter and colder than his home in India. There are more people from diverse backgrounds wandering the streets and there is a distinct lack of monasteries.
