(March 5, 2018) We are honored and delighted to announce Geshe Tenzin Sherab arrives today for three weeks of teaching at Maitripa College. Geshe-la, a pure and dedicated scholar-practitioner and teacher, is a resident teacher at Deer Park Buddhist Center in Wisconsin. Geshe-la was born and raised in Tibet, and left to pursue Buddhist education and monastic training at Sera Je monastery in India, where he completed the entire Geshe curriculum of study. His main teachers included Ganden Tri Rinpoche (formerly Jangtse Choje Rinpoche) and Geshe Sopa. You can read more about his biography here. Join us in welcoming Geshe Tenzin Sherab-la for his first visit with us!
Geshe-la will be giving public teachings onThursdays, March 8 and 15, 7:30-9pm entitled “Overcoming Challenges to Practicing Buddhism Today”. The guidelines for spiritual practice leading to Enlightenment, such as the practices of bodhisattvas, were written millennia ago and have been sustained and transmitted through monastic communities in Asia. Today, with our many distractions of technology, and obligations of work and relationships, can lay people even hope to dedicate themselves to a serious spiritual path? How can we effectively work with our current conditions – fortunate or otherwise – to develop our wish to benefit ourselves and others? All are warmly welcome for Geshe-la’s thoughts on these questions and more. Dharma talk offered free of charge.
