Geshe Tashi Appointed Abbot

For those of you who don’t know, Geshe Tashi Tsering is a Tibetan monk who has been resident in the UK teaching at many centre’s including Jamyang Leeds. In fact, Geshe Tashi was instrumental for inspiring the start of Jamyang Leeds 21 years ago.

So it is with some sadness but also rejoicing that we share the news: Geshe Tashi has been appointed as Abbot of Sera Mey monastery in South India. Clearly a very respected position, in what is one of the three great monastic seats of the Gelug tradition.

Here is the full news about what this means for our activities here in Leeds, and some advice we had from Geshe-la on Saturday.

With Love from Kerry all at Jamyang Leeds

    Wonderful teacher – how fortunate England has been for so long to have GTT – I often see Geshela as HHDL and/or KLZR – but more frequently I think I can see echoes of Lama Yeshe when he is teaching…..let’s hope he is able to visit in summer often….not winter anyway – maybe too cold for an India dweller 🙂

      Yes, we’ve very fortunate to have Geshe Tashi here for so long. Let’s hope he’ll be able to come back soon.
