Helpful explanation of the Dalai Lama’s words

“Che le sa”

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been the center of a controversy recently, an unfortunate linguistic misunderstanding. My good friend, Lama Lekshe, has written a beautiful and succinct explanation of the cultural meaning behind the phrase, che le sa, in her essay that will assuage anyone’s doubts about this great and compassionate human being.​ Her essay written April 13, 2023.

Lekshe, another three-year-retreat “graduate,” has decades of experience in Tibetan and Nepali culture. She’s also a wonderful teacher with a thriving sangha, Dekeling, in Portland.
