Geshe Thubten Rinchen

ACI In-Depth Course 4: The Art of Interpretation, Part 1 (1998, Bylakuppe, Geshe Thupten Rinchen)

In this fourth course of the ACI In-Depth Course Series, we will dive deeply into the study of emptiness and learn the art of interpreting what the Buddha really meant. This is one of the most beautiful subjects, and incidentally the most difficult, of the entire Geshe study program. This teaching was given by Geshe Thubten Rinchen, who Geshe Michael considers to be the greatest living scripture teacher in India. He agreed in 1998 to give a few lectures on it to Geshe Michael and 15 of his ACI students which turned out to be these 26 classes.

Geshe Thubten Rinchen

Geshe Thubten Rinchen is one of the greatest living Tibetan Buddhist philosophers and scripture teachers. He has taught precious texts and ideas to the monks of Sera Mey for many hours virtually every day for nearly 40 years. Fifteen ACI students were fortunate to receive 26 of his classes in October, 1998 on Trang-nge (how to interpret the figurative and literal meanings of Lord Buddha’s teachings), with Geshe Michael interpreting. In January, 2000, 80 ACI students returned to Sera Mey for round two of Trang-nge, later passing on these teachings to others in the US.
