About Geshe Tenzin Zopa:
Geshe Tenzin Zopa visited Queensland for the first time last year; his enthusiasm and warmth captured the hearts of all who attended. His humble manner, gentle humour and clear and topical explanations of Buddhist philosophy engaged everyone who attended his teachings.
Geshe Tenzin Zopa is featured in the 2008 documentary film Unmistaken Child, which follows his successful search for the reincarnation of his beloved master, Geshe Lama Konchog. This charming and emotional film is available on DVD or you can watch it on YouTube.
