The lamrim tradition was further systematized and elaborated upon by many holy beings of Tibet, including the great philosopher and practitioner Lama Tsongkhapa, and these teachings have continued to be passed from teacher to student up to this present day.  About our resident Teacher Geshe Tharchin Geshe-la was born in Tibet and has completed the Sera Je Monastic University Lharampa Geshe Degree – PhD in South India, has a degree from Gyume Tantric College and taught at the Kopan Nunnery in Nepal. In 1991 Geshe Tharchin took Gelong (full) ordination from His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Geshe Tharchin is the resident teacher at Chandrakirti Meditation Center in Upper Moutere, Nelson.
