Geshe Sherab will continue teaching from “Guide to the Bodhhisattva’s Way of Life – A Bodhisattva’s Mindfulness (Chapter 5)”. In this classical masterpiece, Shantideva provides instruction on how to practice compassion and wisdom in everyday life, describing the ‘perfections’ of the Bodhisattva which are generosity, ethics, patience, joyous effort, meditative concentration and wisdom.
Geshe Sherab understands and connects very well with Western students, presenting the Dharma in an highly accessible, warm, and open manner.
Geshe Thubten Sherab was born in 1967 in a small village in the province of Manang, the western part of Nepal, to a Kagyu-Nyingma family. He entered Kopan Monastery at the age of nine and completed his Geshe studies at Sera Je monastery in South India, followed by a year at Gyumed Tantric College. He then completed retreat and teaching assignments both in the U.S. and Asia. He served as Head Master of Kopan Monastery’s school for four years, overseeing debate training and tantric training activities.
Geshe Sherab taught and helped in FPMT International Office for two and a half years in Taos, New Mexico, from 2001-2003, and also served as Director of the FPMT Board for a few years. After he returned to Nepal from the United States, Geshe-la was in retreat for a year and was then appointed as Head Master of Kopan. For the last few years, he has been traveling and teaching at FPMT Centers in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Asia and Europe.
