Rime Geshe Kelsang Wangmo!

Postby kirtu » Fri Apr 29, 2011 7:19 pm

Kelsang Wango has become the first female geshe(is she the first female geshe in history or the first Western female geshe?)! She received a Rime Geshe diploma (equivalent to a Ph.D. in Buddhist Philosophy) conferred by IBD at graduation ceremonies held on its big campus in the Kangra Valley, Wednesday, 27 April 2011.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama authorized the Institute for Buddhist Dialectical Studies (IBD) to award Rime Geshe degrees in 2009.

This is really a day of celebration!
:woohoo: :rolling: :jumping:
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche
