About Dungse Lama Pema:
After completion of studies in Buddhist philosophy and rituals in 1997, he became the principal of Thrangu Rinpoche’s school for Himalayan Children in Kathmandu, Nepal. In 2002, Rinpoche appointed him as a Vajra Master, one of the highest posts in the monastery amongst khenpos (abbots), retreat masters, staff and monks. In 2004, when plans were made to establish Thrangu Monastery in Richmond, BC, Rinpoche appointed Lama Pema to help make Rinpoche’s vision for the monastery come to fruition. Lama Pema is now the head resident lama of the monastery the chief representative of V.V. Thrangu Rinpoche for North America.
Milarepa was a yogi, and he is one of the most beloved figures in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, across all four major lineages. He is renowned for overcoming tremendous obstacles in following a spiritual path which lead him to Marpa, the famous Tibetan translator of the Buddha’s teachings. Milarepa is cherished for his songs of realization, which expressed poetically some of the highest teachings in the Kagyu tradition.
