In this blog series, Geshe Tashi gives us regular updates on the Coronavirus Pandemic amongst the Tibetan diaspora in India through the lens of Sera Mey Monastery, home to 6,000 monks. In response to emails asking after his welfare and requesting advice in these difficult times, he generously shares his observations, thoughts and advice in his usual warm-hearted and accessible style.
In this update Geshe Tashi describes a welcome visit from a local medical team on the one hand, on the other having to urge his untrained monks in the medical centre to hold their nerve.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, he finds time to give us extensive advice on the kind of contemplations and practices he thinks will be helpful for us at this time. This is a warm, engaging and uplifting message from a master practitioner.
