Mandala‘s recently released issue (October-December 2010) features six notable young people associated with FPMT, ranging from the ages of 6 to 25.
The youngest of these, Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche (the recognized reincarnation of Geshe Lama Konchog) and Kundrol Rinpoche (recognized as the former Geshe Lobsang Jamyang), share advice, opinions, messages to former students and memories from their previous lives in “Young Lamas Have Their Say.” These heartwarming interviews are worth sharing with others, especially with those fortunate enough to meet these young tulkus in Kopan Monastery in Nepal.
The others – Ling Choktrul Rinpoche, Cherok Lama, Osel Hita and Gomo Tulku – are a fascinating and well-spoken group of men, each with his own distinct and charming personality. You might feel closer to one or another, but it is clear that all the interviewees are worth reading in “Roundtable Discussion With FPMT Young Notables.”
We’d love to hear what you think about what you’ve read, so please feel free to leave a comment.
