Tashi Tsering

Tashi Tsering (Tibetan: བཀྲ་ཤིས་ཚེ་རིང་Wylie: Bkra-shis Tse-ring) (born 1958) has been the resident Tibetan Buddhist teacher at Jamyang Buddhist Centre, London, since 1994.

Tsering was born in Purang, Tibet in 1958, and his parents escaped to India in 1959. He entered Sera Mey Monastic University in South India when he was 13 years old, and graduated with a Lharampa Geshe degree 16 years later. Geshe Tashi then entered the Higher Tantric College (Gyuto) for a year of study.[1]

Tsering's teaching career began at Sera, after which he taught the monks at Kopan Monastery, Nepal for a year. He went on to the Gandhi Foundation College in Nagpur, India and then moved to Europe, initially to Nalanda Monastery in the South of France.

Tsering teaches in English and is renowned for his warmth, clarity and humour. Besides Jamyang, he is a regular guest teacher at other Buddhist centres in the UK and around the world as well as creator and teacher of the Foundation of Buddhist Thought, the two-year FPMT correspondence and campus course on the basics of Tibetan Buddhism.[2]

In March 2018 it was announced that Geshe Tashi Tsering had been asked by the Dalai Lama to become abbot of Sera Mey Monastic University in India.[3]

Geshe Tashi Tsering (Jamyang Buddhist Centre) should not be confused with Tashi Tsering of Chenrezig Institute, Australia.
