Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso retired from formal teaching in 2009. He continues to work very hard writing new books, updating previous titles, and helping to establish new Buddhist centers and temples throughout the world.

He has written 24 books, founded over a thousand meditation centers, established modern Kadampa study programs adaptable to different countries, trained thousands of qualified teachers, established a flourishing ordained community, and created the Temples for World Peace project to build a Kadampa Buddhist temple in every major city in the world.

In his teachings, Geshe Kelsang emphasizes the importance of meditation and how to apply it in daily life, the need to be truly happy, and how to cultivate a good heart to help others.

Not only does he demonstrate these qualities perfectly in his own life, but he inspires so many people from so many different countries because he teaches by example. He is a humble Buddhist monk dedicated to helping people throughout the world find true happiness.
