Tenzin Ösel Hita was born in the small Spanish village of Bubión, Granada, in 1985. He was recognised as the incarnation of Lama Thubten Yeshe by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 1986 and was subsequently enthroned at a ceremony in Dharamsala, India.
From an early age, Ösel travelled to FPMT monasteries and centers in Nepal, America, Australia and Europe, usually accompanied by one of his parents, Paco Hita and Maria Torres. In 1991, at the age of seven, Ösel went to live at Sera Monastery in southern India, where he studied traditional Tibetan subjects and received private tutoring in Western subjects.
Ösel later attended a private high school in Victoria, British Columbia and graduated from the University of Madrid with a three-year BA degree in cinematography in 2008. He released a film, Being Your True Nature, in December 2012.
