Lama Pema received the monastic vows of a bikhshu at a young age, completed a three year retreat, and was outstanding in all aspects of study and training. In recognition of his achievement, Kyabje Thrangu Rinpoche appointed him as a Dorje Loppon or Vajra Master. He now directs the grand Thrangu Monastery Canada in Vancouver where he tirelessly propagates the Dharma and guides his students.

The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen is a renowned song of instruction written in verse by the great 17th century Mahasidda Karma Chakme. This profound Dharma is known in full as The Union of Mahamudra and Dzogchen, Direct Instructions of the Great Compassionate One. As such,it offers us the most unique experiential teachings in mahamudra and dzogchen within the context of meditation on the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Chenrezik.
