Our Masters

The Masters teaching in the Dharma Centre belong mainly to the Mahayana tradition of Tibetan Buddhism; in particular to the Gelugpa school, commonly known as the School of the Yellow Hats. Many teachers who attended the Buddha Center in the early years of activity (’80) have now left the body: from the first spiritual director, Geshe Jampa Lodro Geshe Rabten, Geshe Yeshe Tubten, Tzerig Lama, Geshe Ngawang Darghie, Lama Sherab, Geshe Ciampa Gyatzo.

Since 1995, the Spiritual Director of the Center is the Tibetan Lama Healer Gangchen Rinpoche.

As Spiritual Director, Lama Gangchen is always taking care of the activities of the Centre and is actively involved with lectures and teachings, along with the masters of his Foundation, the Lama Gangchen World Peace Foundation.

So, the list of the Masters is completed by the following: Lama Michel Rinpoche, Lama Caroline Lama Lawang, Geshe Lobsang Pende, now abbot of Shar Gaden Monastery (India) and Geshe Wangyal, also of Shar Gaden Monastery.
