This book tells of the religious history of Samagaun Village in Nubri Valley, Nepal. However, it does not only promote Tibetan Buddhism but also tourism in the valley.

Samagaun is the home village of Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and older brother the Venerable Tsoknyi Rinpoche. It was one of the worst-hit areas of the devastating 2015 Nepal earthquake.

“佛所預言的聖地~與快樂之鄉的邂逅 Buddha’s Prophecy: Meeting with the Happiest Village” was written by Ms Leong Oi Yin. Preparation for this book was also the reason I was in Nepal in May – June 2019, at the invitation of Samagaun head lama, Ula Jigmé Tsewang Namgyal Lama, who is the cousin brother of the Rinpoches.
