Which is the most important things in our daily life? Dharma, family, job, money, vacation, coffee? What is the purpose of becoming a Buddhist? What is your view on life? From morning to evening, what is on your mind much of the time? What should you remember first when you are facing difficulties, such as death, fear, suffering, worry, and stress. Venerable Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will explain his experiences and teaching from his gurus. Students will have the opportunity to share ideas that can be helpful for dealing with obstacles on the path.

Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama's Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche.
