Ghe Pel Ling

Institute for Tibetan Buddhist Studies

His Holiness The Dalai Lama’s visit is an event organized by Ghe Pel Ling Institute for Tibetan Buddhist Studies.

The Institute also organized the 1999, 2007 and 2012 teachings given by His Holiness in Milan.
Ghe Pel Ling is a religious association founded in 1978 under the auspices of His Holiness The XIV Dalai Lama with the scope of diffusing the knowledge, study and practice of Buddhist philosophy at its highest level, according to the Gelug school.

Thanks to the unparalleled work of the actual spiritual director and guide, Ven. Thamthog Rinpoche, his predecessor Gheshe Tenzin Gonpo and the current resident master Ven. Tenzin Khenrab Rinpoche, the Institute offers, in the most complete and pure way, the path that Buddha Shakyamuni presented for those looking for more spiritual depth in their lives.

Ghe Pel Ling holds midweek courses, weekend seminars, and different length intensive retreats where the entire Buddhist path is taught. With great compassion and skillful means, Ghe Pel Ling’s masters teach, guide meditative sessions, bestow initiations and give advice for the daily life. Thanks to their immense kindness, both, the center’s number of members and interest in the Buddha’s teachings have continuously increased.

In addition to the above stated, the Institute also offers courses in Yoga and Tai Chi Chuan.
