Tibet House Movie Nights is pleased to present Geshe Wangyal. With Blessing of the Three Jewels: a dramatic story about the incredible earthly and spiritual journey of a Buddhist monk from Russia who became one of the first preachers of Tibetan Buddhism in the United States. In 1923, as a young man, he left his home and spent over 30 years in Tibet and India, attaining the Buddhist degree of Geshe. He was a friend of the Dalai Lama and taught at Columbia University, dedicated his life to putting the Buddha’s teachings into practice, and trained many talented students, increasing interest in Buddhism in the West.
