Under the spiritual patronage of Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering, TKSL is a school of Buddhist Science with an emphasis on philosophical teachings relating to the nature and workings of consciousness/cognition; the way things exist; and the difference between how they exist and how they appear to us.
The purpose and benefit of the study is to help us understand how our minds work so that we can bring them under our control and thereby lead happier lives.

A quick word about Mind and Mental Factors
Khensur Rinpoche recently gave this short teaching on the importance of studying Mind and Mental Factors to students in Israel.
There are many teachers who have taught and continue to teach at TKSL since it began in 2008. Our current teachers are listed below.
Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Tashi Tsering
Founder, teacher and patron, Khensur Rinpoche began TKSL with the intention of benefiting both Buddhist and non-Buddhist students by educating them on the basis, or how things actually exist. Rinpoche is currently teaching Lama Tsong Khapa’s Lam Rim Chen Mo, Chandrakirti’s Entering the Middle Way and Tarig (Reasons and Logic). See Rinpoche's biography here.
Tshering has been Khensur Rinpoche's attendant and translator for more than 20 years, and is one of the original teachers at the school. She has taught many subjects, including the very popular Tibetan classes and Logic for Dummies.
Tsewang is a long-time student of Kensur Rinpoche. She is a graduate and former tutor of the Buddhist Studies Program at Chenrezig Institute. Tsewang is currently teaching Grounds and Paths in our Buddhist Studies series on Tuesday nights. Tsewang also shares translation duties with Tshering.
