All are welcome to come to the Center to bid farewell to our dear resident teacher, Geshe Tenley, as he leaves for a month-long trip to India.
Geshe-la will travel to Sera Jey Monastery, his India home, where he lived for 20 years during his intensive monastic training years, and where many lamas and monk brothers reside.
His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be at Sera from Dec 25 through Jan 3rd bestowing teachings on 18 Treatises of the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment, "Jangchup Lamrim". It is extremely rare for His Holiness to give these teachings and oral transmissions. His Holiness began the teachings last year at Ganden Monastery which Geshela attended, and this year he will complete the cycle of teachings.
Geshe-la will also have a chance to meet with his other teachers and many friends. It will be a busy time and we are very happy Geshe-la is making this trip. He returns on January 21st.
For those who would like to farewell Geshe-la at the airport, flight details will be announced closer to the time of his departure.
