At the request of H.H. J.D. Sakya, Sogyal Rinpoche, author of the highly acclaimed book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, has agreed to give a public talk at Sakya Monastery on the Padmasambhava spiritual practice. The Padmasambhava puja is one of the central practices of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism. Guru Padmasambhava was an Indian tantric master who brought Buddhism to Tibet and is considered by many to be the Second Buddha. On the 10th lunar day of each month, a special feast offering (Tso-Kor) is made to Guru Padmasambhava at Sakya Monastery.
A world-renowned Buddhist teacher from Tibet, Sogyal Rinpoche was recognized at an early age as the incarnation of a great master and visionary saint of the nineteenth century, Tertön Sogyal Lerab Lingpa (1856-1926), a teacher to the thirteenth Dalai Lama. Sogyal Rinpoche has a remarkable gift for presenting the heart essence, spirit and flavor of Tibetan Buddhism in a way that is both authentic and profoundly relevant to the modern mind. Sogyal Rinpoche is the founder and spiritual director of Rigpa, an international network of Buddhist centers. He has been teaching for over thirty years and continues to travel widely in Europe, America, Australia and Asia.
