Geshe Lama Konchog, born Lobsang Puntsog (1917–2001), was a renowned Tibetan Buddhist gelugpa lama, who had thousands of followers around the world. Konchog was recognized by the Dalai Lama to be a Great Mahasiddha, or realized guru.

Konchog spent a total of 26 years in isolated mountain retreat, seeking illumination. Beginning in 1985, he resided at Kopan Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal. He also traveled around the world teaching.

Konchog died at the age of 84 in 2001. His funeral rites, and the search for his subsequent reincarnation (Rinpoche) by his close disciple Tenzin Zopa, are documented in the 2008 film, Unmistaken Child.
