A quick word about Mind and Mental Factors
Khensur Rinpoche recently gave this short teaching on the importance of studying Mind and Mental Factors to students in Israel.
There are many teachers who have taught and continue to teach at TKSL since it began in 2008. Our current teachers are listed below.
Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering
Founder, teacher and patron, Khensur Rinpoche began TKSL with the intention of benefiting both Buddhist and non-Buddhist students by educating them on the basis, or how things actually exist. Topics Rinpche has recently taught include Lam Rim Chen Mo, Entering the Middle Way and Practical Reasoning and Debate. See Rinpoche's biography here.
Tshering has been Khensur Rinpoche's attendant and translator for more than 20 years, and is one of the original teachers at the school. She has taught many subjects, including the very popular Tibetan classes and Logic for Dummies.
Tsewang is a long-time student of Kensur Rinpoche. She is a graduate and former tutor of the Buddhist Studies Program at Chenrezig Institute. Tsewang also shares translation duties with Tshering.
Pema is the manager of TKSL, and teaches the Thursday morning class, currently Exploring the Mind.
