Congratulations Geshe Lobsang Nima!
Geshe Lobsang Nima
Geshe Nima was born in Kham, Tibet. He started his Buddhist studies and practices at Gaden Dhondup Ling monastery when he was thirteen years old. In 1992, he and a small group of monks escaped from Chinese-occupied Tibet and joined Drepung Loseling monastery in India to pursue his Buddhist studies.
In 2010, he joined Gelgupa University and underwent all examinations to achieve his Geshe Lharampa doctoral degree in Buddhist philosophy. He was awarded his Geshe Lharampa degree in front of His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the Drepung Monastic University in 2015 and attend tantric studies at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala, India.
In addition, Geshe Nima has served the monastic community in a variety of positions. He taught both undergraduate and graduate students at Drepung Loseling Monastic University and as Principal of the academic school. Prior to his appointment to Disciplinarian he also served as secretary of Drepung Loseling Educational Fund and was Editor of the Drepung Loseling monastic university journal.
Because of our inner deep connection and your support, my Enthronement Ceremonies went successfully and wonderfully. Everyone here at the monastery also assisted me in whatever way I needed. I felt overjoyed and had real experiences of genuine love and kindness — between human to human.
Thank you all for making donations to make the ceremonies successful. I spent your donations by giving foods to the monks who helped with the ceremonies, and offered thanksgiving money for their hard work. They were also given cold drinks, snacks, and tea while they offered me kata scarfs throughout the series of ceremonies. I am much grateful to you all.
As I mentioned before, I read the donors names two times in the general assembly and especially when we practiced to Our Deity Protectors, with the presence of all great Geshes and Lamas. I asked for their blessing and to pray for your good health, success in all your endeavors and so forth.
I have a strong determination to help you strengthen your studies and practices—both in terms of Sutra and Tantra, if you would like to do so. I am once again grateful to you all for your kindness and being a good practitioners and good students.
With much prayers and fresh blessings,
