In memory of Lama Zopa Rinpoche

“True happiness in life begins when you begin to love others.”

On April 13, 2023, at 9:30 am, Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche entered his last meditation in Kopan Monastery in Nepal.

On Sunday 3 December, the day on which our precious Guru and spiritual director would have celebrated his 77th birthday, we monks and nuns of Sangha Onlus will join the celebration organized by the Lama Tsongkhapa Institute to thank him for his infinite generosity and kindness.


In the meditation room of the Lama Tsongkhapa Institute, at 18 pm, following the precious advice of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, we will recite "The Holy Names of Manjushri", for the rapid return of the reincarnation of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche's latest video about our Monastery


We share the words of encouragement, trust, appreciation and great support that Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave us in March 2023, one month before leaving his body.

"In Italy we have land. This is historically the first Tibetan Monastery in Italy... I want everyone to participate, that everyone's minds, happily, come together to build this Monastery... in order to create merit, ok?
It's incredible, incredible. Wow, wow, wow! There are many mountains, lots of space, incredible, a beautiful Monastery…
This will give the opportunity for so many people to go there one day to create the causes to reach enlightenment
