Teachers

There are many teachers who have taught and continue to teach at TKSL since it began in 2008. Our current teachers are listed below.

Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering

Founder, teacher and patron, Khensur Rinpoche began TKSL with the intention of benefiting both Buddhist and non-Buddhist students by educating them on the basis, or how things actually exist. Rinpoche is currently teaching Lorig (Awareness and Knowers), Chapter 26 of Nagarjuna's Fundamental Wisdom on the Middle Way, and Tarig (Reasons and Logic). See Rinpoche's biography here.
