We invite you to join our Sunday program, where like minded people gather to nurture deeper connection and meaning. This regular Sunday program will be led by Venerable Geshe Sonam and includes meditations for developing awareness and compassion, reciting Buddhist mantra, and the rare opportunity to learn from a highly trained and experienced Buddhist monk. Questions are encouraged, helping us explore how Buddhist ideas apply to everyday life. We complete the gathering with a time for conversation over tea.

One does not need to become a Buddhist to attend. His Holiness Dalai Lama states, Don’t try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already–are” 


Venerable Geshe Sonam Ngodup

We are delighted to welcome Geshe Sonam Ngodrup back to Canada and to Lama Yeshe Ling! We are so fortunate that he will be volunteering to teach and offer spiritual guidance. Geshe Ngodrup is very well loved by his students and is known for being a warm, patient and approachable teacher. Geshe-la is an inspiring example of how to bring the Dharma into practice.

Venerable Geshe Sonam Ngodrup was born in Kardze, Kham in 1968, crossed the Himalays to come to India to become a monk when he was 13 years old. He graduated with distinction as a Lharampa Geshe Sera Je monastery (much more than a doctorate). After this he studied tantric philosophy and ritual at Gyume Tantric College. Geshe Sonam has taught at the Maitraiya Institute in the Netherlands, at Nalanda Monastery in France and as a visiting teacher at various FPMT centres in Europe and here at Lama Yeshe Ling.
