Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will share how his spiritual life developed while residing and teaching at Sakya Monastery. He will discuss what he learned about Western culture and mind and how to preserve the Dharma so that it can flourish in the West. He will share some of the teaching and advice he received directly from H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche and H.E. Dagmo Kushola. Questions are welcome about his life. He also wants to learn how to better relate to Westerners in order to help them study and practice the Dharma.

Ven. 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.

Tulku Yeshi has written thirteen books, ten of which have been published, on the subject of Tibetan Buddhism and culture, including “A One Thousand Year History of Sakyapa.” He has published three books in English: his autobiography “A Modern Liberation Odyssey - An Autobiography of a Tibetan Nomad Lama”, “Handbook for Half-Buddhas” and “Tibetan Zen.” He also writes novels, poetry for mind training, provides Tibetan astrology readings, can advise people on how to enjoy their life, and can bestow empowerments. Currently he is working on Dharma activities at Sakya Monastery in Seattle.
