Rime Geshe Kelsang Wangmo!

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:
