About Venerable Gyatso
Born in Melbourne in 1946, Adrian Feldmann graduated from the University of Melbourne with a degree in medicine. After practising medicine in Australia and overseas, he travelled for several years through Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, eventually finding his way to a Tibetan monastery in Nepal. After much study and soul-searching, he became ordained in the 1970s by Lama Thubten Yeshe as the Buddhist monk, Thubten Gyatso. Since then he has run a free medical practice in Nepal, taught Buddhism and meditation in Nepal, Mongolia, Taiwan, USA, France, New Zealand and Australia, establishing monasteries in France and in Bendigo. He was one of the first Westerners to become a monk in the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. He is an FPMT veteran who has been instrumental in establishing a number of Dharma centres in France, Taiwan, Australia and Mongolia. As well as teaching extensively around the world, Gyatso is the author of two books. Gyatso is the author of The Perfect Mirror, A Leaf in the Wind and, The World and Ourselves. Gyatso regularly teaches and leads retreats at Atisha Centre in Bendigo and is the former Director of Thubten Shedrup Ling Monastery.
