What is vajrayana and how does it differ from other Buddhist teachings? Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe, the pre-eminent Buddhist scholar, explains this form of practice (also known as tantra) and what it entails. This teaching is aimed at those who are new to vajrayana or need clarification. It is particularly relevant for those interested in attending the upcoming Lama Chöpa retreat or any other specific vajrayana practice or teaching.
This teaching was recorded in India and translated by Katrina Brooks.

Geshe Yeshe Thabkhe is a genuine contemplative master and a member of the last generation extensively trained in old Tibet. He received his monastic education at Drepung Loseling Monastery and, in 1969, was awarded the Geshe Lharampa, the highest degree of scholarship conferred within the Geluk School of Tibetan Buddhism. He is Professor Emeritus of Buddhist Philosophy at the Central University of Tibetan Studies, the only Tibetan university in India. His scholarly work includes a translation of The Essence of Good Explanation of Definitive and Interpretable Meanings (Tib. Lek-Shey Nying-Po) by Tsongkhapa into Hindi, and A Commentary on the Rice Seedlings Sutra (Skt. Salistamba Sutra) by Vasubhandu. He has facilitated numerous other research works, including the complete translation of Lama Tsongkhapa’s The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Tib. Lam Rim Chen Mo), a major project undertaken by The Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center in New Jersey, where he teaches regularly.
