Khensur Rinpoche, Geshe Tashi Tsering, was the resident Geshe at our sister centre, Chenrezig Institute for eighteen years, at the request of Lama Zopa Rinpoche and HH the Dalai Lama. Khensur Rinpoche also taught here at LTC during that time. When he retired, he was appointed by HH the Dalai Lama to become abbot of Gyurme Tantric College in India. He is a highly respected Geshe in Australia, India and Tibet, and has over 45 years of study and experience in both Buddhist philosophy and practice. Khensur Rinpoche understands the western mind very well. He is much loved for his warm and enthusiastic manner, and his clear and incisive teachings.
