REVOLUTIONARY SPIRITUALITY: The Current Situation in Tibet

In a return visit to Spokane, Venerable Geshe Thupten Phelgye, will be discussing the current situation in Tibet, and the work that he did on the new charter for the Tibetan Parliament in Exile, which no longer includes the Dalai Lama as the political head. Geshe Phelgye by was born in Tibet in 1956 and escaped to India with his family when he was three years old. He became a monk at the age of seventeen, completed the rigorous eighteen year course of traditional studies in Buddhist philosophy that earned him the title "Geshe" (PhD) from the Sera Monastic University in 1991, and followed that with Buddhist Tantryana studies at Gyumeh Tantric Monastry. In 1993 he dedicated five years to a meditation retreat in the mountains of Dharamsala. He was elected as a member of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile in 2001 to represent the Gelug tradition of Buddhism. Geshe Phelgye is currently spending the year teaching at Gonzaga University as its first Global Scholar in Residence. This program originally aired on 5/14/12. contact information: http://www.universalcompassion.org/
