Photos of Geshe Tashi receiving his British Empire Medal

We’re ashamed to be so behind, but here are some pictures of Geshe Tashi after he received his British Empire medal at the Tower of London last year.  

After the ceremony, Geshe Tashi and his sister Dolma, together with His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s representative and John Adrian had lunch together and were taken on a tour of the Tower, which included the Crown Jewels.  Geshe la particularly enjoyed the day out.

A big thank you to John Adrian for these photos.

Our other (more recent) news is about The Foundation of Buddhist Thought Online Course.  To accommodate all the interest we’ve been getting, we’ve opened up another group, and so we now have places to fill.  If you know anyone who might be interested in joining the January intake, please to point them our way.  We’ll be including video streaming for the first time, as well as monthly live discussion groups – another first.

We’ll leave you with an image of Geshe Tashi’s medal, received for his services to Buddhism, to inspire you into the Twenties and beyond.

With best wishes, as ever,

    Now that Geshe Tashi la has taken over the British Empire, I don’t think we have any problems left!

    Congratulation Geshe Tashi! Very happy for you indeed. I Miss you.

  3. Geshela!
    I miss you so much!!
    I miss your weekly teachings, your lovely presence and your golden light.
    Life is much more easier with someone like you around.
    I wish you can come to visit us soon: to Jamyang or to Bern or Zürich, wherever I can go to meet you.
    I can’t find any other master like you. And the closest FPMT Center is close to 3hours by train.
    Please, come back soon or organise some teachings on line live if you can.
    I guess I’m not the only one missing you that much.
    With love and blessings.
