Born in 1951 to a nomadic family in Shillong on the border of Tibet and India, Geshe Pema Dorjee has  devoted his life to cultivating meaning and happiness. Like many other Tibetan families of the times, they found refuge in India. After many years of study at the Tibetan Homes Foundation School (TCV) and the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala he worked as a teacher for Tibetan Language and Culture. Soon he became Principal of the Tibetan Children´s Village School and only three years later  director of the institution.

In 1995, as a result of his continued studies in Buddhist philosophy, he was awarded the Geshe degree (equivalent to a Ph.D.) from the Drepung Loseling monastery. In 1989, at the behest of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama, Geshe Pema Dorjee, his friends and supporters established Pelmo Choeding Monastery in exile, one of the great legacies in the history of the Bodong tradition.

 

In 2003 he founded the Bodong Research and Publication Center near Thekchen Choeling Temple, Mcleod Ganj in Dharamsala, and he became its director.

Geshe Pema Dorjee has devoted his life to a great number of charitable projects such as creating schools, establishing regional support, health aid, individual care, never ignoring any occasion to be helpful and to show compassion. To him a meaningful life and happiness is the effect of love and compassion. He is trustee of the Bright Horizon Children's Home.
