~ Lama Rinpoche to Nima

Lama Rinpoche was a Buddhist Monk. He didn't believe in the world's apocalypse when discussing it with Nima.

He was killed when a tsunami washed over the Himalayas and destroyed his monastery, but managed to ring the bell and get out the signal in time. Lama Rinpoche was a casualty of the 2012 Apocalypse.


  • Lama Rinpoche was portrayed by Henry O.
  • He was only seen twice in the film: When he allowed Nima to borrow his truck and when was killed when a megatsunami struck his house while he was ringing a bell.
