In the land of Nepal's famous Sherpa guides, the Lawudo Lama, Kunzang Yeshe (1865-1946) was a beacon of inspiration due to his spiritual attainments. His life provides fascinating insights into the culture of the people who live in the shadow of the world's highest mountain. His reincarnation, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, is now well known as a Buddhist teacher in the west and as the spiritual director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT).
