    Where To Study? Paid Member

    The Diamond Cutter Paid Member

    Michael Roach is the first American to complete the twenty years of rigorous study and examinations it takes to earn the ancient degree of Geshe, or Master of Buddhist Learning, in the Tibetan tradition. He founded and directs the Asian Classics Institute in New York, and under the aegis of his Asian Classics Input Project some 150,000 pages of wood-block manuscripts—carried out of Tibet by refugees in the wake of the destruction of Tibetan libraries—have been transliterated and transcribed into digital databases.

While he was formally studying Tibetan Buddhist teachings, Geshe Michael was also helping to develop one of the world's largest diamond and jewelry firms, Andin International Diamond Corporation.
