Tushita does NOT organise or host His Holiness the Dalai Lama (HHDL)’s Teachings in McLeod Ganj (we wish!), so see HHDL’s own website for futher information about those, but when he does teach at His Temple (about 15 minutes down the hill from here, see photo below), we often hold a Review Session of His Holiness’ Teachings after HHDL has finished for the day.
This is dependent on whether the management of His Holiness’ Temple make arrangements for their own review sessions or not. This is never certain until the day of the event (HHDL’s English translator makes an announcement if review sessions will be held at the Temple after the teachings), but it is more likely that they will not and that Tushita’s Review Sessions will go ahead as planned.
Tushita’s Review Sessions are led by experienced teachers or long-term students. They provide an excellent opportunity to discuss and explore some potentially difficult topics that His Holiness taught on that day, and may be particularly helpful for newcomers to Tibetan Buddhist philosophy who hope to enhance their understanding His Holiness’ Teachings.
Everybody is welcome to attend the review sessions – No advance registration is needed. Donations are very welcome!
PLEASE NOTE: ON HHDL’s TEACHING DAYS THE OFFICE & LIBRARY WILL ONLY OPEN AN HOUR OR SO AFTER THE TEACHINGS HAVE ENDED (we attend them too!)
When His Holiness holds public teachings in McLeod Ganj, the venue is His Main Temple (at Namgyal Monastery, bottom of Temple Road), which is located next to His residence. Tushita is about 15 minutes up the hill from McLeod Ganj. You can see directions here.

Tushita is a centre for the study and practice of Buddhism from the Tibetan Mahayana tradition. We're located in Northern India, in the forested hills above the town of McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala - the seat in exile of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
Tushita aims to provide a friendly and conducive environment for people of all nationalities and backgrounds to learn about and put into practice the teachings of the Buddha. With this in mind we offer regular drop-in events and courses on introductory Buddhist philosophy and meditation, as well as intermediate level courses and group retreats for more experienced students.
