About Our Teacher:
Venerable Geshe Prof. Phelgye, former Member of Tibetan Parliament in Exile, joined Serajey Monastic University at 17. To begin with, he received his novice ordination from the senior tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama (Kyabje Ling Rinpoche) in 1974. He then studied rigorously for the next 18 years, notably earning his Geshe degree (doctorate) in 1991 as a result.
In 1993, with blessings from H.H. The Dalai Lama, he went on a hermitage retreat in a cave on the mountains of Dharamsala. This is where he would remain for the next five years in order to meditate and practice the Dharma. In 1998, he founded the Universal Compassion Foundation (UCF) after receiving support and blessings from H.H. the Dalai Lama. Since then, Geshe-la has openly campaigned for vegetarianism and Universal Compassion around the world. In 2017, Geshe-la opened the Buddhist Institute, a Buddhist temple in Spokane, WA.
