Land of Compassion and Wisdom welcomes Geshe Soepa to Austin
We are fortunate to have our teacher, Geshe Thubten Soepa, visit Austin yearly for an extended period of time.
During his visits, Geshe-la offers classes suitable for all levels of interest in Buddhist philosophy and practice, providing insight and methods to help us live more meaningful and satisfying lives, and ultimately to reach our highest potential. His next anticipated visit will be in 2014.
Geshe Soepa studied for 21 years at Sera Jey monastery in India where he passed the highest level of examinations for his Lharampa Geshe degree. He later taught for three years in Sera and Dzongar Choden monasteries. Geshe Soepa served as resident teacher for Aryatara Institut in Germany for 10 years. He has been visiting and teaching at Land of Compassion & Wisdom in Austin, Texas since 2006 where he is the unofficial, part-time, resident teacher.
