|Khen Rinpoche, Geshe Tashi Tsering|
Gyü-me is one of the primary monastic universities in the Gelug tradition, a place of further training for those monks from the Gelug monasteries who have already been awarded their geshe degree.
Geshe Tashi Tsering lived and taught in the West for many years before his return to India in 2009. He was the resident teacher at Chenrezig Institute in Queensland, Australia, from 1990, where he implemented and was primary teacher of an extensive study programme of Buddhist philosophy and practice which offers a unique opportunity in the West for high-level study of classic topics of Tibetan Buddhism. A diverse and committed student body developed, attracting nuns and monks from around the world. The BSP continues under the guidance of Geshe Tashi Tsering's student, Geshe Lobsang Jamyang, who is assisted by senior Western students.
Geshe Tashi Tsering has hundreds of students around Australia, New Zealand, and Taiwan, as well as in India and Tibet, who have been inspired by his personal qualities and great knowledge and wisdom. His experience with Western students and living in the West has given him great insight into Western thinking and circumstances.
Geshe Tashi Tsering (now in his 70s) has devoted his life to studying and practicing Buddhism and to conveying the essence of the Buddha's teachings in clear, accessible, and powerful ways. He draws from an unbroken lineage of authentic teachings and presents them in a way that is relevant and highly meaningful to modern life. (Read Geshe Tashi Tsering‘s biography here.)
