Suggested donation £15
We are very fortunate that Yangsi Rinpoche, the driving force behind the FPMT’s Maitripa Institute in Portland Oregon can visit us on his trip to Europe this year.
He will give a Vajrasattva Jenang Initiation with a motivational Lam Rim talk beforehand on the afternoon of Saturday 29 June.
This date is part of his European tour - one of only two dates in the UK, on June 30th he will be at Jamyang Bath.
Do come along. He is very definitely a kind and wise charming charismatic presence as well as being the reincarnation of a key teacher from Sera Jey monastery in our lineage.
Yangsi Rinpoche (President) was recognized as the reincarnation of Geshe Ngawang Gendun, a renowned scholar and practitioner from Western Tibet, at the age of six. Rinpoche trained in the traditional monastic system for over 25 years, and practiced as a monk until the age of 35.
In 1995 he graduated with the highest degree of Geshe Lharampa from Sera Je Monastery in South India. He then completed his studies at Gyume Tantric College, and, in 1998, having the particular wish to benefit Western students of the Buddhadharma, Rinpoche came to the West to teach and travel extensively throughout America and Europe.
Rinpoche served as a resident teacher at Deer Park Buddhist Center in Madison, Wisconsin for five years, and is currently the Spiritual Director of Ganden Shedrup Ling Buddhist Center in San Juan, Puerto Rico and Spiritual Director of Dharma Friendship Foundation in Seattle, Washington.
He founded Maitripa College in 2005 in Portland, Oregon. Rinpoche is the author of Practicing the Path: A Commentary on the Lamrim Chenmo, published in 2003 by Wisdom Publications.
Rinpoche teaches in English, and is admired wherever he travels for his unique presentation of the Dharma, his interest in and enthusiasm for Western culture, and his evident embodiment of the wisdom and compassion of the Buddhist path.
