The Treasury of Lives

Yangpachen is a Geluk monastery near Lhasa. Originally a Karma Kagyu monastery, it was founded around 1503 by the Fourth Zhamar, Chodrak Yeshe. Following the Nepal wars of the late eighteenth century, in which the the Tenth Zhamarpa was found guilty of plotting with the Gorkha army, Yangpachen was confiscated by the Tibetan government and converted to the Geluk tradition. In recent years it was been reconverted to Karma Kagyu.
