Visiting Teacher Geshe Kelsang Wangmo

Originally from Germany and fluent in many languages, special guest teacher Geshe Kelsang Wangmo is the first female Geshe (comparable to a PhD in the Buddhist monastic system), recently earning this prestigious degree granted by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Ministry for Religion and Culture. She will be talking about her experiences studying Buddhist philosophy at the Institute for Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, India, with classmates from the great Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. We are honored to be part of her first teaching tour since earning her degree and hearing her unique perspective!
