Open Discussion: Chenrezi

Sunday, November 7 at 1:30 pm
Instructor: Khenpo Jampa Tenphel
Suggested Contribution: Donations Accepted

We practice Chenrezi twice a week (Sunday and Thursday), because the practice is for the benefit of your ordinary life in addition to your spiritual life. This session is an open discussion with Khenpo-la for participants to ask questions they may have on Chenrezi. Each person will have the opportunity to ask a single question, and receive an answer that will last approximately five minutes.

Khenpo Jampa Tenphel comes to us from Dzongsar Institute in India, where he was the library director as well as a tutor for many years. He received a Degree of Acharya (equivalent to an M.A.) in Buddhist Philosophy in 2002 and was ordained as an Abbott in 2004. He has received many teachings and initiations from all four sects of Tibetan Buddhism (Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, Nyingma). Many of those teachings and initiations were from H.H. the Dalai Lama and H.H. Sakya Trizin. He has also received the Lamdre teaching from H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. His root lamas are H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.H. Luding Khen Rinpoche, and H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. At Sakya Monastery, Khenpo Jampa teaches intermediate and advanced level curriculum on Buddhist philosophy and also serves as the librarian for the growing collection of Tibetan Buddhist scriptures.
