    Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s birthday is December 3.


    A celebration for Rinpoche will begin at Kopan Monastery, first thing on December 3. Early in the morning a long life puja (Namgyal Tsechok) will be offered to Rinpoche. During this puja a monetary offering will be made to all of the monks and nuns in attendance on behalf of the entire FPMT organization. In the afternoon, lunch will be offered to all at Kopan including local people from the area, and November Course participants. After lunch, traditional entertainment will be offered including skits and Sherpa dance. We will share photos and more details of this joyous event after the occasion.

    Please join the entire FPMT community, including students and friends around the world, in offering sincere prayers for Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s long and healthy life. (All are welcome to download Long Life Prayers for Lama Zopa Rinpoche.)

    Rinpoche, on behalf of all the six-realm sentient beings who rely on you—please, please live long!
