About the teacher

In 1991 Phelgye obtained the Geshe degree (similar to Ph.D.) from Sera-Jey Monastic University in India. In 1993, with blessings from H.H. The Dalai Lama, he went to the hermitage retreat on the mountains of Dharamsala for 5 years. In 1998, he founded the Universal Compassion Movement and openly campaigned for vegetarianism and Universal Compassion around the world. His gentle teaching style engages students in a Socratic style of cooperative learning. Students like his sharp wit, infectious humor and deep wisdom, making the Buddhist path a vibrant, relevant endeavor.
