  • The savant dGe-‘dun-chos’phel (1902-1951 was the first "modern" scholar of Tibet. He was the first who not only completed a traditional Tibetan education, but who also was courageous enough to leave the monastic society, travel abroad, learn several new languages and deepen his knowledge by collaborating with scholars of different nationalities. dGe-‘dun-chos’phel was renowned in Tibet as a brilliant scholar, a talented artist, a highly gifted poet, an excellent translator, and a skillful dialectical. Yet he was also well-known for his nonconformity which turned him into a highly controversial figure in Tibetan society.
