About Ven. Lama Chime Rinpoche
Ven. Lama Chime Rinpoche left Tibet at about the same time as the Dalai Lama, and was one of the first reincarnate lamas to come to the West. He has lived in England since 1965 and worked for 16 years as curator of the Tibetan Language Collection at the British Library in London. He taught extensively throughout Europe and established Marpa House, the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre in England. His students include American author and Buddhist nun Pema Chödrön and musicians Mary Hopkin, the late David Bowie and Tony Visconti.
