Our courses and classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice rely on a skilled teacher to bring them to life. We're extremely fortunate to have a supremely qualified Resident Teacher to do just that.
After completing his university studies in Hydrology, Geshe Namdak worked as an environmental researcher in the Netherlands. He began studying Buddhism at Maitreya Institute and was eventually ordained by His Holiness the Dalai Lama before completing the 20-year Geshe degree at Sera Jey monastic university in India, as well as the traditional one-year Vajrayana study program at Gyume Tantric College.
Few people can combine this extensive Buddhist education with a rigorous scientific training. The result is Geshe Namdak's unique teaching style, which is at once incisive, clear, warm and humorous.
