We are honored to have this Monk make a return visit to the Rocklin sangha. He is part of the Garden Shartse Monastery in south India. "Geshe" is a degree that is earned after several years of intensive study and passing the highest-level exams. It is the monastic equivalent of a western Ph.D. degree. Having successfully passed these exams, Geshe Tsultrim is an expert on Buddhist philosophy. He is also a skilled artist, specializing in traditional Tibetan art.
Geshe also brings trinkets to sell (jewelry, pashminas, etc.) which support Tibetan organizations. Last year there were some really nice things, cash only please.
We are planning an informal pot-luck social since the School will be unavailable for us to use that evening. We will be next door at Springview Park, 5480 Fifth Street, Rocklin at 6:30pm. Please bring a dish or snack to share and your own drink (no alcohol). Thank you
Concluding the series on The Five Spiritual Faculties, Mary Helen will review Faith, Energy, Mindfulness, Concentration and Wisdom and the important relationships between them. She will discuss how we can transform these simple faculties into powers that we an rely on in living our lives.
