Geshe Tsultrim was born in Tibet in 1969. At the age of 14 he became a monk and was admitted to Sera Je monastery, where he was awarded his Geshe degree (the equivalent of a doctorate in Buddhist studies) in 2005. Geshe Tsultrim spent a further two years studying tantra at Gyume Tantric Monastery. Geshe Tsultrim was appointed to the position of teacher of Buddhist philosophy at TCV School, Bylakuppee in 2006 where he spent two years teaching. Before becoming the resident Geshe at our sister centre, Chenrezig Institute, Geshe-la also spent some time teaching at Root Institute where he was immensely popular for the warm and approachable way in which he presented the Dharma.
