The very heart of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche's enduring legacy is the extraordinary collection of 23 books he composed.

These highly renowned works are the basis of the study programs at the centers and are increasingly being adopted by universities and other educational establishments.

These books are produced and published around the world by Tharpa Publications, a publishing company founded by Venerable Geshe-la and a part of NKT-IKBU.
