Venerable Choje Lama Rabsang
Peace Mala Endorsement
Resident teacher at Palpung Changchub Dargyeling Tibetan Buddhist Centre, South Wales UK
Peace Mala is inspiring and educating people, especially young people, to create more harmonious communities, learning to work together, be more accepting towards each other, and learning to appreciate differences.
Venerable Choje Lama Rabsang is a resident teacher at Palpung Changchub Dargyeling in South Wales. He was born in 1971 in a small remote village in Eastern Tibet. He took robes when he was eleven years old, inspired by his uncle’s example in meditation and realization.
Lama Rabsang spent his early years studying under the direction of his uncle and later studied under the guidance of HE Tai Situ Rinpoche and Very venerable Mingyur Rinpoche in Sherabling in India, where he also completed a traditional three year retreat and served as a discipline master for four years. He moved to UK in 2001 at the request of his Western students, and was appointed as Choje Lama to Palpung Changchub Dargyeling. His warm, joyful presence and profound understanding of Dharma is a guiding light for many of the students and visitors at the Centre and during his travels as a visiting teacher at Kagyu Centres around the world.
Lama Rabsang has supported the work of Peace Mala for many years and has been involved in several of our Inter-faith events and ceremonies for world peace.
