'Lotus Gems is the organization through which Tulku Karma Sangpo enacts all of his activities to bring temporal and spiritualbenefit to sentient beings both in the Himalayan region of Nepal, and throughout the world.
The name ‘Lotus Gems’ is a translation of the Tibetan ‘Pema Norbu’, the name of Tulku’s root lama, HH Pema Norbu (‘Penor’) Rinpoche. Tulku Karma Sangpo explains:
“I feel deeply fortunate to have met and been the direct disciple of a lama of such quality as HH Penor Rinpoche. He set the example for me of one who never thinks about himself, but only thinks about the welfare of others and how to accomplish it. Since I have the name ‘tulku’ I feel that I, too, should try my best to do whatever I can for others.”
“As human beings, we must try to understand the feelings and situations of others. All beings have the exact same right to be happy and to be free of suffering. Training ourselves to rejoice in the good fortune of others, and to cultivate compassion for those who are suffering, is the true path of a spiritual practitioner.”

“ Wow! What an incredible find. We stumbled upon it at the end of an alley just north of Boudhanath. It is brand new but the details, furniture and overall decor was particularly gorgeous. It was the nicest hotel I’ve seen in Nepal. Not to be missed and very well priced. They didn’t have a restaurant open yet but it was almost built but they did have a nice little cafe that helped me start my day just right! If you’re staying in Boudhanath and want modern amenities with Nepalese beauty and decor, this is your spot!
