We are honored to host Ven. Yangsi Rinpoche on Sunday, July 12. Rinpoche will teach us how to establish a daily practice.
In this class we will assemble the tools needed to develop a successful daily practice. We will become familiar with the elements necessary to generate spiritual realizations in the mind, and will discuss tips for making every action of the day meaningful.
We will learn what Lam Rim is and how to use it as a blue print for your personal attainment of enlightenment. We will learn not only why and how to set up a daily practice but also how to stay motivated in your spiritual life. Some of the topics covered will include: structuring a session of a meditation, setting up an altar, setting our motivation, the importance of compassion and loving-kindness, as well as preliminary and dedication prayers.
This class is suitable for all levels of experience.
Ven. 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. Rinpoche was 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. 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.
