About the Author
Geshe Jampa Tegchok became a monk at the age of eight. He studied all of the major Buddhist treatises at Sera-je Monastery in Tibet before fleeing his homeland in 1959. After staying in the refugee camp at Buxa India Geshe Tegchok went to Varanasi where he obtained his Acharya degree and taught for seven years. He then began teaching in the West - three years in England and ten years at Nalanda Monastery in France. In 1993 His Holiness the Dalai Lama appointed him as abbot of Sera-je Monastic University in India. Retired from that position, he now teaches widely in the United States.
