Geshe Kelsang Wangmo

How Things Exist:
a Buddhist view of reality

The extent to which we are not in touch with the way things exist is the extent to which we suffer and, in turn, the extent to which we harm others. Geshe Kelsang Wangmo will explain how to overcome suffering and find ultimate happiness and peace, based on The Heart Sutra.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama with Geshe Kelsang Wangmo and her Mother April 2011

Born and raised in Germany, Geshe Kelsang Wangmo made history in 2011 by becoming the first female Geshe (PhD equivalent) in Tibetan Buddhism. Since 2004 she has taught Buddhist philosophy classes, in English, to Westerners living in Dharamsala, and now gives teachings at centres around the world.
