Who is Geshe Chonyi?

There have been quite a few references to Geshe Chonyi’s Transcript of the Oral Commentary to Shantideva’s Engaging in the Bodhisattva Deeds in the answers to the discussion questions, and you may be wondering who he is. Geshe Thubten Chonyi is the resident teacher of the Amitabha Buddhist Center. He was ordained by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in 1974 and holds the prestigious Geshe Lharampa degree. You can read a more detailed biography of Geshe Chonyi at the Amitabha Buddhist Center’s website.
