At the age of two, Arjia Rinpoche was recognized by the 10th Panchen Lama as the reincarnation of Lama Tsong Khapa’s father and the abbot of Kumbum Monastery. In 1998, after sixteen years of confinement in a forced labor camp and as he was about to become leader of the Chinese National Buddhist Association, Arjia Rinpoche chose exile overseas. He eventually settled in Mill Valley, California, where he established the Tibetan Center for Compassion and Wisdom. In 2005 he was appointed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as Director of the Tibetan Mongolian Buddhist Cultural Center in Bloomington, Indiana. Both centers are dedicated to the preservation of Buddhist teachings and Tibetan art and culture. In 2010, he published his memoirs, Surviving the Dragon.
