Geshe Pema DorjeeThis course provides the rare opportunity to study with Geshe Pema Dorjee, an internationally recognized authority on Tibetan Buddhism. His fluent English, clear and practical explanations, warm-hearted nature, and infectious sense of humor infuse meaning and inspiration to the venerable practice of Mind Training.

Born in Tibet, Geshe Pema Dorjee completed his studies in Prajnaparamita and Madhyamika at the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics. He then obtained his Geshe degree at Drepung Loseling Monastery. Amongst his academic appointments, he was the first Principal of the College for Higher Tibetan Studies. At the request of H.H. the Dalai Lama, he founded and continues to direct both the Bodong Research and Publication Center in Dharamsala and the Bodong monastery and school in Kathmandu. He devotes the rest of his time to organizing and directing humanitarian projects in Himalayan India and Nepal and to teaching and lecturing in Sweden, England, Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, Finland, Estonia, Norway, France, India, and Israel. This will be his fourth year teaching at the Tibet House.
