great strength of Drepung Loseling Monastery is the quality of its
teachers. Among Buddhist study centers in the West, we are virtually
unique in having multiple teachers in residence throughout the year
who hold the qualification of the Geshe degree, the highest degree
of learning awarded in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Our visiting
teachers are among the most highly respected of the Geluk tradition.
The Monastery has also had the rare honor of hosting His Holiness
the Dalai Lama three times, most recently
in October of 2007.
