Below Mount Manaslu – Samagoan, Birthplace of Tsoknyi Rinpoche

Below Mount Manaslu – Samagaon, Birthplace of Tsoknyi Rinpoche.mp4 from Tsoknyi Humanitarian Foundation on Vimeo.

The film includes beautiful footage taken in Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s childhood village of Samagaon in the Nubri region of Nepal and highlights the life of women and the grinding poverty they experience. This is where most of the girls originate from who come to Tsoknyi Gechak Ling.  Delightful historical photos of Tulku Urgyen, Tsokyni Rinpoche, Mingyur Rinpoche, and Lama Tashi Dorje ( grandfather)!
