About Geshe Zopa

Geshe Tenzin Zopa was born in 1972 in the Tsum Valley in Nepal and is a Tibetan Buddhist monk of the Mahayana tradition. He is known by the title Geshe, which is Tibetan for professor of Buddhist philosophy. He entered Sera Jey University in 1990 to undertake extensive studies in Tibetan Buddhist philosophy and graduated as a Geshe in 2007.

The highly esteemed late Geshe Lama Konchok became Geshe Zopa’s spiritual and temporal guardian when Geshe-la was three. The multi award-winning documentary ‘Unmistaken Child’ covers his search over 5 years for the recognised reincarnation of his late master.

Geshe-la entered Kopan Monastery in 1984 and was ordained as a monk. He became close to and received teachings from many high lamas across many different lineages. During his adult life Geshe Tenzin Zopa has worked for his close teacher, Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who passed away in April of 2023, as an international touring Geshe with FPMT. He has taught extensively across the world.

Projects undertaken by Geshe-la include taking responsibility for the temporal and spiritual development of Rachen Nunnery and Mu Monastery, Tsum, Nepal and supervising the completion of the 1000 Buddha Relics Memorial Stupa at Kopan Monastery, Nepal. Geshe Tenzin Zopa is undertaking the important responsibility of overseeing the physical, mental and spiritual development of Tulku Tenzin Phuntsok Rinpoche, the unmistaken reincarnation of the late great mahasiddha Geshe Lama Konchog.
