Life Religiously Lived

Welcome to our biographical series on Choje Lama Wangchuk Topden, a Kathmandu-born monk and monastery manager who has been tasked with realizing Ven. Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche’s vision for the monastic community of the Vajrayana Kagyu school. It is perhaps inevitable that Choje Lama is better known to some as the nephew of Thrangu Rinpoche. This story is about Choje Lama alone, told on his terms as a Buddhist leader.
