Mingyur Rinpoche – “Essence of Buddhist Meditation” – A Talk
This will be an afternoon session at Deer Park on the 26th of December, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
Mingyur Rinpoche is a highly venerated teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He was born in Nepal in 1975, and was recognized as a tulku by both H.H. the 16th Karmapa and H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
At the age of 13, Rinpoche entered a traditional three-year retreat. At age 17 he was asked by H.E. Tai Situ Rinpoche to become the retreat master and at age 20, Situ Rinpoche asked Mingyur Rinpoche to become assistant abbot of Sherab Ling where a new monastic college was established under Mingyur Rinpoche’s guidance. One of his current projects is the newly opened Tergar Institute in Bodhgaya, India, which will serve large numbers of people attending Buddhist events at this sacred pilgrimage site, serve as an annual site for month-long Karma Kagyu scholastic debates, and serve as an international study institute for monastic and lay sangha.
Mingyur Rinpoche teaches actively in the West and is known for his remarkable ability to convey the Buddhist teachings in a clear and skillful manner. For more information, please visit www.mingyur.org.
