Geshe Lobsang Tsultrim, managing director of Gaden Shartse Thubten Dhargye Ling is coming to Placerville on Tuesday, Oct. 30.

The visit is sponsored by PureMind.org in collaboration with Sierra Friends of Tibet (Tibetech.org).

Venerable Geshe Lobsang Tsultrim is a Tibetan Buddhist monk of the Gelugpa order, born near Amdo in the eastern region of Tibet. Following his escape from Tibet, Geshe Tsultrim joined the historic Gaden Shartse Norling Monastery, exiled in Southern India.

At Gaden Shartse, Geshe Tsultrim trained in philosophy and earned his certificate of pramana bidya (Buddhist logic and epistemology), certificate of prajnaparamita (Mahayana Buddhist studies of the six perfections), certificate of madhyamika (middle way Buddhist philosophy), certificate for abhidarma (Buddhist psychology and phenomenology), certificate of vinaya (monastic discipline) and his geshe degree (comparable to a western Ph.D.).

Geshe Tsultrim also studied sacred art and served as the sand mandala master for the Gaden Shartse Sacred Arts of Tibet Tour, visiting more than 50 countries in over 10 years.

Geshe Tsultrim is currently on assignment as the managing director of the Gaden Shartse Thubten Dhargye Ling, Tibetan Buddhist Center in Long Beach. When Geshe Tsultrim is not on assignment he makes his home in Auburn.

For more information on Geshe Tsultrim see his Website PureMind.org.

On Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 4:30 p.m. there will be a talk on “Cultivating Ethics in Difficult Times” at the Cozmic Café, 594 Main St. Placerville. For more information contact Carolyn at 530-748-5864 or pvilletibet@gmail.com.

Venerable Geshe Lobsang Tsultrim will lead a special Buddha of Compassion (Chenrezig in Tibetan) retreat practice written by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, the exiled spiritual leader of the Tibetan People whom Tibetans revere as the physical embodiment of compassion or “Chenrezig.”

The practice carries great potency radiating from the author, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, through the text, through the practice, and through the individual.

The Chenrezig practice is very powerful for beginners as well as seasoned practitioners alike. Many students who attend this retreat have little or no experience with Buddhism and meditation.

The practice of Chenrezig is used to purify obstacles to spiritual development, negative karma, and illness, and allows space for positive experiences and beneficial states of mind to flourish.

For details on the Chenrezig Retreat see puremind.org/Schedule.htm

To register contact Melanie at tibetech@gmail.com or 530-263-9960.

Placerville Friends of Tibet is an ad hoc group of all ages and beliefs, united in the common purpose of helping to keep the culture of Tibet and the Tibetan people alive and flourishing in our hearts, in Tibet, and wherever communities of Tibetans are forced to live in exile. It is the sincere hope and prayer that they will someday be able to return to their homeland as an autonomous people, to practice their culture and beliefs as all people have a right to do.

If you would like more information on Tibet and what you can do to support the people of Tibet, please email pvilletibet@gmail.com.
