Today Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, an internationally renowned Buddhist Master, having followed the guidance and inspiration of his Spiritual Guide, presents the teachings of Buddha in an accessible and appropriate way for modern society in the 21st century. This modern presentation safeguards the continuity of the lineage of Buddha’s teachings, ensuring they remain authentic, vibrant and relevant for future generations.
All the instructions and practices published by Tharpa Publications come from the teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni, the founder of Buddhism and the principal object of refuge for all Buddhists throughout the world. Buddha attained full enlightenment 2500 years ago in Bodh Gaya, India. He then taught the spiritual paths that lead to enlightenment extensively for the rest of his life. From his enlightened wisdom and compassion, he showed how we can all find solutions to our problems and experience lasting freedom from suffering.
