Essence of Eloquence 2018-01-24T15:02:35+00:00

8th – 14th October 2018 

With Geshe Tashi Tsering

Following on from a very successful retreat on the ‘Essence of Eloquence’ at Land of Joy in 2017, we are very excited Geshe Tashi has agreed to return to the centre for a second retreat on the same text in 2018. 

This time around, the requirements necessary to attended the retreat are to have studied any part of the Lam Rim. You do not need to have previously attended any teachings on the text.

It’s important to be aware this retreat will be covering some very in-depth and challenging teachings on the topic of emptiness as presented by the Gelug tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. If you are not already familiar with these concepts you may find the teachings difficult to follow.

Geshe Tashi is a native of far West Tibet. Born in 1958 Geshe La fled his homeland with his parents due to the onset of the Han Chinese Communist Party’s systematic destruction of the ancient Buddhist culture of Tibet. Eventually, after much hardship, his family were some the first refugee Tibetans settled in the uncultivated lands around Bylakuppe in Karnataka.

Geshe Tashi went through the whole monastic curriculum at Sera Je Monastery, studying for a geshe degree, which he gained with highest honours, a first in the Geshe Lharampa degree. He then went on to the Gyu Toed Tantric monastery where he studied the major Geluk tantras for one year.

Geshe Tashi then taught at the FPMT’s Nalanda monastery near Toulouse in France. From there Geshe La went to teach at Jamyang Buddhist Centre in London where he has now been for over seventeen years.

Geshe Tashi teaches directly in English and is well known for the warmth, humour and clarity of his presentations of introductory and Foundation level meditation and philosophy in Buddhism.
