Kurukulla Center: Resident Teacher Geshe Tsulga’s Passing

Dear Members and Friends of Guhyasamaja Center,

A long-time teacher and friend of Guhyasamaja Center–Geshe Tsulga has been the resident teacher at FPMT’s Kurukulla Center in Boston for many years–passed away earlier this evening after a long time being ill with cancer. Geshe-la died peacefully in Boston. Some of you who’ve been coming to the center for some time may recall years ago when Geshe Tsulga used to visit the center with some regularity. Geshe-la was always very kind and patient, traveling down to teach for long weekends and kindly guiding us through various Buddhist classics.

For those of you who knew Geshe-la and for whom he was your teacher, prayers that have been advised to recite for him include the Guru Puja, the King of Prayers, and the Manjushrinamasamgiti.

More details about Geshe Tsulga’s passing can be found on the Kurukulla Center website.

Thank you,

Lorne Ladner
Center Director, Guhyasamaja Center

  1. I’ve been thinking a lot lately of Geshe Tsulga’s visits to the center years back. I think it’s been 5-6 years since he came and taught, so most newer members weren’t attending when he used to come.

    Geshe-la was an extremely sweet, gentle, patient teacher and spiritual friend. Very warm. I remember his teaching for a number of visits on Atisha’s Lamp for the Path. And also on the Uttaratantra–on Buddha Nature. And on the Heart Sutra, focusing on emptiness.

    The last time I recall seeing Geshe-la in person was at His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s teachings up in Pennsylvania a couple of years ago. I was stressed, desperately looking for change of some bills to buy drinks of Khensur Rinpoche and other monks and students. Suddenly, Geshe Tsulga was there with lots of change. Bodhisattva’s are always there for you, whether you need profound teachings on the path to Enlightenment or just change to buy some juice~!
