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.
