Evening Dharma Teaching: "Educating the Heart"
Geshe Tsultrim was born in 1966 in the upper Ngawa region of Amdo in eastern Tibet. Early in life, he began studying Tibetan art, and specifically sacred thangka painting. In 1986, Geshe Tsultrim arrived in India, where he undertook monastic studies at Gaden Shartse monastery, studying Buddhist philosophy and dharma. “Geshe” is a degree that is earned after many years of intensive study and passing the highest-level exams. It is the monastic equivalent of a western “PhD” degree. Geshe-la (a fond term for a Geshe), is fluent in Tibetan and converses in English as well as Chinese.
