Everyone is invited to attend special prayer and practice sessions – commencing Saturday 24 August – to mark eight years since the passing of our precious founder, teacher and guide, the most Venerable Geshe Acharya ThubtenLoden.
Geshe Loden was the living embodiment of the path to enlightenment and of the Vajrayana path.
Geshe-la continually reminded his students that the main point is to be kind and compassionate and look after others. Geshe-la not only taught the entire Buddhist path, but helped others in innumerable, practical ways – everything from career advice to looking after their health.
Without Geshe-la, the Tibetan Buddhist Society and the inestimable benefits it has brought to thousands of people would not exist.
Geshe-la’s dynamic energy and spirit live on in all of the many activities of the Society – from the extensive teaching program to the community food program in Broadmeadows. The Tibetan Buddhist Society community prays for the swift return of Geshe-la’s reincarnation, Loden Rinpoche.
