In this multimedia presentation, Nicholas Ribush writes about his journey with Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche to Lawudo in the summer of 1973. The narrative is supplemented by rare photos of the lamas and their Western students. Nick describes the trek from Lukla up to Namche Bazaar, then on to Mende and finally to Lawudo, where he stayed for some time after the lamas had departed.
Lawudo is a small village in the Solu Khumbu region of Nepal. It is a sacred place built around the cave of the Lawudo Lama, Kunsang Yeshe, a yogi who had meditated there for more than twenty years. Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who was born nearby in 1946, was recognized at the age of three as the incarnation of Kunsang Yeshe.
“I was invited by the Love Lawudo Newsletter to write about my trips to Lawudo (1973, 1974 and 1977),” said Nick. “The first was published in three parts, combined here into one. So it’s quite long but I hope you enjoy it. And that you’re inspired to go to amazing, wonderful Lawudo yourself.”
