Shantideva Center hosted teachings with Geshe Thubten Sherab at Tibet House on “The Wisdom of Emptiness.” Geshe Sherab also gave a teaching on death and rebirth for our Discovering Buddhism Study Group at Jewel Heart. We hope everyone found the teachings inspiring and beneficial. Our heartfelt gratitude to Geshe-la for coming to teach at our Center again, and a big thank you to the volunteers who made these teachings possible.
