Practices natural therapies, teaches Tibetan yoga, the wisdom sword and meditation.

The father of two children, he was born in India in the largest Tibetan community in exile where His Holiness the Dalai Lama lives. He began studying at the Tibetan school TCV (founded by the Dalai Lama’s sister) and continued in zoology at the University of Chennai before coming to Europe.

He first works as a translator in a Buddhist centre and cultural association in Italy and studied in the international law University in Milan while working in the international insurance sector for 7 years.

During this period, Gelek began to experience and learn physical problems and work-related mental stress. He then began to look for ways to treat himself with natural therapies in different eastern and western cultures. The results were astonishing and his health improved rapidly. He then decided to radically change his professional career and turned to natural therapies. He is passionate about not only physical but also mental health. An art of living that becomes essential in his life.

My goal is to help people by making them discover the benefits of natural therapies and its applications in eastern and western world and to share my personal and professional experiences, acquired over several years and across different cultures.


He travelled in search of different approaches in Natural Therapies in countries like Thailand, India and several European countries where natural therapies are widely practiced. He received the teachings on Buddhist philosophy from a great reincarnated master, Kangyur Rinpoche.

Gelek, in addition to the natural therapies that he had been practicing since 2007, practices and teaches Tibetan yoga and meditation. Methods to find calm and inner peace, which he believes are the true qualities to cultivate in our daily lives.

Currently, he is completing his studies in Tibetan medicine.
