with Geshe Thubten Sherab
Saturdays, August 19 – September 30, 2023
9:00am – 10:30am PDT (Pacific Daylight Time)
no class on September 16
Geshe Sherab will teach on “The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas,” a classic Tibetan text on mind training (Lojong) written by the 14th Century BCE Sakya master Tokme Zangpo. Considered a companion to Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara, in 37 verses, it presents the complete graded path of the bodhisattva to progress toward enlightenment.
Geshe Sherab says:
It is a beautiful lojong or mind training text that will give us a practice or the tools to deal with problems and obstacles; a method to transform difficulties and pains into the path and make them positive.
Geshe Thubten Sherab, a student of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa since childhood, brought this direct lineage of teachings to New Mexico in 2001. Geshe Sherab held the position of headmaster of the Mount Everest School at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, and was appointed to serve as acting abbot of Kopan Monastery for one year. Since 2014, he spends 6 months in Santa Fe as Thubten Norbu Ling’s Resident Geshe, and 6 months teaching abroad.
Geshe Sherab is conversant in English and several other languages. He is a spiritual guide to students of Buddhism around the world.
