Most of us have practiced the 12 Deeds of Lord Buddha in our daily life. Understanding of the Twelve Deeds inspires us to practice deeper. In addition, sometimes we focus on tantric deities rather than Lord Buddha. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will teach the importance of understanding the 12 Deeds of Lord Buddha and what the connection is between Lord Buddha and the tantric deities.

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. 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.
