About Geshe Tenzin Zopa
Geshe Tenzin Zopa is featured in the 2008 documentary film Unmistaken Child, which follows his search for the reincarnation of his beloved master, Geshe Lama Konchog. Geshe Zopa was born in Nepal, and became a monk at age nine. As a child he studied Tibetan language, English, Nepali, art, lama dance, ritual, puja, and Buddhist philosophy.
In 2007 he completed his studies and graduated as one of the youngest Geshes (equivalent to a PhD or Doctor of Divinity) in Tibetan Buddhism. In his youth he skipped four grades, and the Dalai Lama let him take his final Buddhist exams four years ahead of schedule.
Geshe Tenzin Zopa is now undertaking the important responsibility of overseeing the physical, mental and spiritual development of Tulku Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche, the unmistaken reincarnation of his late master Geshe Lama Konchog.
He is currently based in Australia and has extensive commitments worldwide, as he follows the advice of Lama Zopa Rinpoche in his work for the FPMT and helping students to understand and put into practice the teachings of the Buddha internationally.
