He is the only child of five to have survived the escape.  He has been a monk since the age of 7.  In 1982, he was sent to the West by His Holiness Sakya Trichen, as the first of the younger generation of Tibetan teachers in America from the Sakya School. He is the creator of “Bur Yig”–Tibetan Braille.  He is also the founder of Pema Ts’al (“Lotus Grove”) Schools in Mundgod, India (for Tibetan lay children); Pokara, Nepal (monastic schools for boys); and Pema Ts’al School in New York City (with a curriculum modeled on that of Sakya College, India).
