Guhyasamaja Center is honored to announce that Ven Yangsi Rinpoche will give a teaching on Sunday, June 27 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston, VA from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. This will be Yangsi Rinpoche’s first teaching for us, and we are very excited that he could take time out of his busy schedule to visit us.
Yangsi Rinpoche 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 twenty-five years, and in 1995 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. He is the President and Professor of Buddhist Studies at Maitripa College in Portland, Oregon and the author of “Practicing the Path”, a fantastic commentary on the Lam Rim. More about Rinpoche….
