About Geshe Dawa

Geshe Dawa has studied extensively in both Tibet and India since taking ordination at the age of nine. After leaving Tibet in 1959, Geshe-la, together with several hundred other monks, helped to establish a branch of Sera Monastery in south India. His academic accomplishments in Buddhist studies include the Acharya Degree from Varanasi University, which he completed in three years rather than the usual ten. He also holds a Lharampa Geshe Degree, the highest possible attainment in formal Buddhist philosophical studies, and a Tantric Geshe Degree.

Geshe-la has received many teachings and initiations from various Great Masters including his Holiness the Dalai Lama as well as his two tutors, Ling Rinpoche and Trijang Rinpoche. On the invitation of Lama Yeshe, Geshe Dawa moved to Melbourne to become the first resident Teacher at Tara House where he taught regularly for four years as well as twice yearly at Buddha House in Adelaide. Geshe-la then returned to India to teach at Sera Monastery.

In 1991, having been requested by Lama Zopa Rinpoche many times, he took up the position of resident Teacher at Vajrayana Institute in Sydney where he taught for eight years.

Geshe Dawa is now semi-retired and lives in Bankstown. Geshe-la continues to give regular teachings and initiations to a devoted group of students.
