Collected Topics Handouts

In 2004, Geshe Kelsang Wangmo and Don Eisenberg co-taught the Collected Topics, the first preliminary course to geshe-studies.  Before that, another IBD student, Tenzin Josh, taught the Collected Topics a few times.

Below are some short texts that are used by students of Collected Topics.  They can be downloaded from Jeffrey Hopkins website, Uma Institute of Tibetan Studies, or from below:
