Geshe Doga is one of a special group of Buddhist masters educated in Tibet before the exodus of the Dalai Lama. Geshe la, along with many other eminent teachers, followed His Holiness into exile in India in 1959. Since then, these teachers have carried the responsibility of re-establishing the monasteries in India, and keeping the Tibetan monastic traditions alive. Many, like Geshe Doga, have migrated to western countries, where they enable westerners to access the precious Buddhist teachings.
Everyone is welcome to come to our special monthly events with Geshe Doga. The teachings are easily accessible whether one is a beginner or an experienced practitioner. The atmosphere is relaxed and always full of joy and good humour.
A special feature of these Sundays is being able to enjoy a communal lunch with Geshe la, other monks and nuns, and members of the Drol Kar and Tara communities.
