geshe sangpo lag by moyo

Currently unavailable for purchase

my buddhist teacher, geshe sangpo lag.
he was born at amdo province, eastern tibet and joined his local monastery at repkong as a child. as a youngster, he walked from eastern tibet to lhasa and joined the big monastic university ganden jangtse. in 1959, as a young monk he fled with others from tibet to india. in india he worked as a librarian at the sanskrit university of varanasi. he became the abot of ganden jangtse monastery in mundgod in the south of india and built up the monastery from scratch together with a few dedicated monks. they also had to care for a bunch of kids at the same time. later, he was appointed by h.h. dalai lama as the abot of rikon monastery, switzerland.

he passed away in 1995 but is still greatly missed. his re-incarnation is presently being educated at ganden jangtse monastery, mundgod.

for my pricing policy see this

with my prices i support rb who are obviously desperately in need of income. why else would they need that hate and greed driven work of hh that seems to sell well too.

so if you want to buy a copy, please contact me on bubble mail first.

    he looks like a really lovely person ursa

  • he was the kindest and most patient person i have ever known. a great teacher and a great role model.

  • …and he had the ability to look straight into everyone’s heart, behind any type of mask or facade they were trying to uphold.
