nuns-geshema-2017Dharamshala — The second batch of Geshema graduates saw six nuns receive Geshema degree, the highest academic degree in Buddhist studies (equivalent of a PHD in Buddhist Philosophy) from Minister of Religion and Culture (Kalon) Ven Karma Gelek Yuthok at Dolma Ling Nunnery in Norbulinkga on November 6th.

“The recipients must carry forward the teaching of Buddha. When we say carry forward the teaching, we should not think of foreign lands. We must first give priority to the nunneries in exile. When the nunneries here become impeccable, its impact can be boundless,” said the minister.

Encouraging the nuns who excel in studies and scriptures to teach their fellow nuns, he said that sometimes debates with students could also be beneficial to better understand the scriptures.

The convocation ceremony of the first ever batch of Geshema degree holders took place just last year, when 20 nuns received the degree from the Tibetan spiritual leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
