LAMA YESHE, founder of the FPMT
Lama Thubten Yeshe (1935-1984) was born in a village close to Lhasa in Tibet. He was soon recognized as the reincarnation of a learned abbess who lived at Chi Me Lung nunnery. This abbess was considered to be a great yogini.
Lama Yeshe lived at Sera Je monastery until he was 25 years old, following strict monastic discipline.
At the age of 28 he was fully ordained by Kyabje Ling Rinpoche at Buxaduar, where he met a young reincarnate lama named Zopa Rinpoche who would become his disciple. This was a crucial moment for both of them: their meeting would eventually change thousands of Westerners’ lives. In 1971 they settled at Kopan Monastery, and in 1975 Lama Yeshe set up the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). Since then, this foundation has grown steadily.

Since March 3rd 1984, when Lama Yeshe passed away in Los Angeles at the age of 49, Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been guiding the foundation. Eleven months after Lama Yeshe’s death, his reincarnation was recognized in the person of Osel Hita Torres, born in Granada, Spain on February 12th 1985.
