Khenpo Kharpo is a 71 year old Shakya lama born in eastern Bhutan in Lhuntse Zhong. Inspired by his masters, His Holiness Jidrei Yeshe Dorji and Polo Khenpo, Khenpo Kharpo has founded a monastery in Pelphu, Bhutan and has organized the Druk Odiyana Foundation. The Foundation has embarked on building a 148 foot steel and copper Guru Rinpoche statue. The statue will be in the Nangsey Zilnon position, symbolizing his subduing negative forces in the universe. Three lhakangs will also be built for 15000 monks to perform religious ceremonies. Takila, Bhutan is the site of this auspicious project where the 9th Karmapa was in retreat. The Himalayan peaks and the borders of Tibet can be viewed from Takila, Bhutan.
