We are very happy to announce the appointment of our new head disciplinarian here at Shar Gaden Monastery.
Geshe Lobsang Jamyang was born in Kham, Tibet. He ordained as a monk at the age of 16. He came to Gaden Shartse Monastery in India when he was 20. He lived at Zemey Labrang and studied under his Root-Guru, Kyabje Zemey Rinpoche. Upon the completion of his formal studies, he was granted the degree of Geshe Lharampa, the highest degree in the Gelug educational system, comparable to a Ph. D in philosophical studies.
After Shar Gaden was established, Geshe Lobsang Jamyang was unanimously elected to serve as the school principal for the duration of two years.
He is widely respected here at Shar Gaden Monastery and will be a big asset to the monastery in his new position as head disciplinarian.
We are also happy to announce the appointment of our new Chant Master.
Lobsang Jinpa is originally from Dhapa, in the Kham province of Tibet.
He ordained as a monk at a local monastery in Tibet at the age of 16.
He came to India with a group of refugees in 1997. It was then that he entered Gaden Shartse Monastery.
Lobsang Jinpa has been a student of his Root-Guru, Lobsang Namgyal, for many years.
He is just two years away from completing his final monastic exams and will then be awarded the title of Geshe; Master of Buddhist Philosophy.
Lobsang Jinpa has much experience with a multitude of pujas and ceremonies, therefore his extensive experience will bring great benefit to Shar Gaden Monastery.
