Lama Thubten Yeshe

“True practice is something we must do every moment, day by day. This means doing what we can, with the wisdom we have, and dedicating all of it for the benefit of others.”
— Lama Yeshe

Lama Thubten Yeshe was born in Tibet near Lhasa in 1935. At the age of 6, he entered Sera Monastery, where he studied Buddhist philosophy and meditation until 1959, the year China invaded Tibet, as Lama Yeshe said: "In that year the Chinese kindly told us that it was time to leave Tibet and see the outside world"

After his forced exile, he continued his studies in the refugee camps of northern India, where he took Lama Thubten as his main disciple. Zopa Rinpoche.

In 1965, they met what would be their first western disciple, the Russian princess Zina Rachetsky. Both teachers settled in Kopan in 1971, a small village near Kathmandu in Nepal, where they began to teach an increasing number of Westerners Buddhism and meditation. These same students, in turn, started groups and set up centers in their countries of origin. In 1974 lamas began to travel and teach in the West which eventually gave rise to the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) in 1975. Lama Yeshe organized it and gave its name to this network which has continued to grow ever since. and expanding with new centers, institutions and projects around the world.

A person of great charisma, admired for his erudition, simplicity, and practicality, Lama Yeshe traveled the world incessantly teaching until his death in Los Angeles in 1984.

In 1985, HH the Dalai Lama recognized Osel Hita from Spanish origin, like his reincarnation.
