Saturday, February 28th at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm 2015
(followed by teachings every other Saturday)
We are very excited and privileged to have the former Abbot of Gyudme Tantric Monastery, Venerable Lobsang Jampa Rinpoche, teaching at the Gyuto Foundation.
The teaching The Bodhisattva's Garland Of Jewels will be given at Gyuto Foundation every other Saturday. This is a very common mind training text used by all four Tibetan Buddhist schools to teach and practice in their daily lives.
This event is open to the public and we welcome everyone to join us.
There is no charge, but donations are greatly appreciated.
Venerable Lobsang Jampa Rinpoche is both a scholar of great knowledge and understanding, and a holder of many traditional teaching lineages. His generous presence and contributions to the Sera Mey Monastic University have proven indispensable. A living example of Buddha's teachings, he divides his time between personal meditation, practices, and teaching a growing network of western and Tibetan students. He is highly qualified to teach on all levels of Buddhist practice and to conduct all Buddhist rituals. He regularly teaches at Guhyasamaja Center in Washington, D.C. and Do Ngak Kunphen Ling in Redding, Connecticut.
