Lecture, Discussion, Q & A, Meditation & Blessing. A Free community event, Donations welcome, to benefit the Siddhartha School
In 1995, Rinpoche founded The Siddhartha School in his home village in Stok, Ladakh. The school seeks to preserve Tibetan Buddhist Culture and language while giving the children of this remote Himalayan area a well-rounded education, which allows them to represent themselves and their culture in our rapidly evolving global community.
In 1996, shortly after he founded the school, H.H. Dalai Lama appointed Rinpoche to be the head abbot of the newly reestablished Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in India. (This is in the absence of the 11th Panchen Lama, one of Tibet's most revered reincarnating masters and traditionally Tashi Lhunpo's abbot, who has been missing since the Chinese Government took him and his family into custody when he was 4 years old.)
