The first American to complete and receive the “Geshe” degree after 25 years of study in east asia philosophy. He helped to found Andin International Diamond Corporation in New York City, which grew from a small investment to $250 million USD in annual sales, and was purchased in 2009 by super-investor Warren Buffet.
In 2010, Geshe Michael founded The Diamond Cutter Institute (DCI), which was conceived as a way to recognize the universal nature of these great ideas and make the ideas usable as “The Diamond Cutter System”, a methodical system for leadership and success among governments, corporations, entrepreneurs and other professionals around the world.
DCI was named after one of the foundational books of Asian philosophy, “The Diamond Cutter Sutra”, which gives a profound and detailed description of the Asian presentation of cause and effect.
