Pacific Grove Beacon, CA May 15, 1998
P.G.’s Buddhist Lama, Geshe Lobsang Gyatso, Dies
By Susan Goldbeck
After a long battle with diabetes, on May 6, 1998, Buddhist Lama Geshe Lobsong Gyatso died at his home on Wood Street in Pacific Grove. He was 66. Lama Geshel, as his many friends called him, a man of peace and harmony, was ironically born to a warrior people, in the province of Ham, Tibet in 1932. He entered a Buddhist Monastery at the age of eight where he was educated in both religious and secular subjects. In particular, he was schooled extensively in Buddhist metaphysics. His spiritual growth as well as his intellectual process led him to become a renowned teacher and spiritual counselor. When the Chinese invaded Tibet, the non-violent Dalai Lama fled the country along with many Tibetan monks including Lama Geshela. Many of the monks were killed in the perilous journey along with 87,000 Tibetan people. After his escape from Tibet, Lama Geshela taught briefly in Nepal and was then transferred to the United States. He was a teacher here in Pacific Grove since the late seventies. Aimee Bernstein, a friend and student of Lama Geshela, said of him at his passing, “He was the embodiment of the principles he taught others gentleness, kindness, honesty, and trust. The guiding principle of his life was to help people find happiness. He loved Pacific Grove. Clean, green and good, he’d say.
