Biography: Geshe Thubten Samdup, more well known as Gomde Lharampa, is a former monk of Sera Je monastic university, one of the largest monastic universities of Tibet. In 1993, he achieved the highest degree given by the Gelugpa Tradition, the degree of Geshe Lharampa (an equivalent of PhD in Buddhism). In 2009, during the Dalai Lama’s visit to Vancouver, he appointed Geshe-la as a spiritual teacher to the Tibetan community (TCCC Tibetan Canadian Cultural Center) in Toronto, Canada where he taught from 2010 to 2017. Presently, he is teaching at Lama Yeshe Ling at the request of Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

 

He has authored many books, including an encyclopedic Dharma dictionary called The Great Gomde Dictionary, published in 2013 by Sera-Je monastery. This dictionary has received great recognition from Tibetan scholars and high Lamas including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Gyalwang Karmapa Rinpoche, as well as the Western translators. The second edition is ready to be published and will have 8 volumes (5,036 pages), presumably the largest Dharma dictionary in the world.
