Bio of Lama Yeshe
Born in 1943 in Kham, East Tibet, Lama Yeshe spent his formative years in education at Dolma Lhakang Monastery where his brother, Akong Tulku Rinpoche, was Abbot. After a harrowing six month journey escaping from Tibet as a teenager in 1959, Lama Yeshe arrived in India along with Akong Rinpoche, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and a handful of other exhausted refugees. On leaving the Tibetan Refugee Camp he attended the Young Lamas Home School in Dalhousie and left in 1967 to serve as Private Secretary to His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa at Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim.

As a young boy in East Tibet, Lama Katen was given the auspicious name of Tsultrim Palbar by his maternal uncle, Choje Akong Tulku Rinpoche. He learned to read and write Tibetan in his local village, but as there was no Monastery nearby he was unable to follow his natural inclination to become a monk. Read more
