“For beginners in the Dharma, the most important thing is to try and integrate one’s study
and practice. You can see some who are only into study, only intellectual … They have
knowledge like a computer, knowing everything but nothing really touches the heart.”
Geshe Sherab, who is fluent in English, knows how to relate to the western mind when teaching the Dharma. He’s warm-hearted, generous, accessible, articulate and humorous with an enthusiastic intellect which relishes difficult questions. Born in Nepal in 1967 of Tibetan parents, Geshe Sherab was accepted by Lama Yeshe to be a novice monk at Kopan Monastery, Nepal. He completed his Geshe studies at Sera Je Monastic University and Gyume Tantric College. He became Headmaster of Kopan Monastery and currently teaches at the FPMT centre in Santa Fe, New Mexico and internationally.
