According to Lord Buddha’s teaching, everything is impermanent. Our ego destroys relationships and friendships easily in our daily lives, and especially affects our pure vision. Mahayana and Vajrayana practitioners need to learn how to keep and sustain our pure vision, compassion, and passions, and recognize how hatred freezes our “seeds of compassion” and destroys our peace of mind. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will teach from the experiences that he has had living in the East and the West on how to transcend hatred and develop compassion.

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. He received teachings from forty masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism.
