    We are very happy to announce that Gelek Rimpoche will be offering a teaching at the Gyuto Foundation this weekend! This event is being co-hosted by Jewel Heart, and the topic of the teaching will be Good Life, Good Death, based on Rimpoche's book.

    Kyabje Gelek Rimpoche: Good Life, Good Death
    Saturday & Sunday, Oct 18-19
    8:30am - 6:00pm

    We are delighted to invite you to a special two-day weekend dedicated to recognizing the richness life has to offer us - from the opportunities and obstacles we meet every day, to how these experiences inform our death and future lives. Rimpoche will delve into how our reliance on compelling emotions like anger, obsession, jealousy and pride is intricately connected to our past as well as our future. Please join us for this unique opportunity, amid our busy daily lives, to learn and practice Dharma with Gelek Rimpoche.

    *Registration is necessary and the cost is $120 per person. This event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. We understand that not everyone may be able to afford this cost; please know that you are still welcome and no one will be turned away due to lack of funds!

    More information and detailed schedule here.

    Good Life, Good Death is available in paperback and e-book. Paperback copies will be available during the weekend. To order e-books, visit Amazon, i-books, and Barnes & Noble. (Note spelling "Gehlek".)

    Gelek Rimpoche will be available for book signing after teaching on Sunday.

  • Venerable Thupten Donyo

    "Tibetan Buddhist monk, Venerable Thupten Donyo, befriended and toured with the legendary rock band The Grateful Dead in the late 1980's. He liked the United States so much that he eventually settled in San Jose where he converted a suburban home into a temple and founded The Gyuto Vajrayana Center. The center is not only a place of worship for local Buddhists, but also a learning center of Tibetan history and language."
