Lama Pema Tsewang

An evening with Lama Pema Tsewang

8 January 2020, 7:30pm at E-Vam Institute

Dungse Lama Pema Tsewang was born in 1972 in Tsum, in the Himalayan border region of Nepal. At the age of nine he entered Thrangu Tashi Choling Monastery in Boudhanath, Kathmandu, taking the novice vows of a monk in 1983 and the full ordination vows of a gelong in 1989. He completed a traditional three-year retreat under the guidance of Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche then returned to Tsum and received all the empowerments for his family lineage of Guru Chowang. After completing his studies in Buddhist philosophy and ritual in 1997, he became the principal of Shri Mangal Dvip School, Rinpoche’s school for Himalayan children in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Lama Pema is the head resident lama of Thrangu Monastery Canada, the chief representative of Ven. Thrangu Rinpoche in North America.

In this exceptional trip to Melbourne, Australia, for the annual Buddhist Summer School, Dungse Lama Pema Tsewang will spend an evening sharing stories and experiences from his life as a monk. The evening will provide time for questions from guests. We invite you to join us for this special event.
