The death was announced yesterday of Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche, who co-founded Kopan Monastery, Wisdom Publications, and the international organisation known as the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). He was 76.

A teacher of the Gelug school of Buddhism, Lama Zopa was born in the Mount Everest region of Thami in 1946 and left Tibet in 1959 for Bhutan after the Chinese occupation.

The FPMT today comprises 160 Dharma centres and projects across 37 countries.
