The Buddha’s first teaching was called The Four Noble Truths. This class will study them and show why they are as profound today as they were over 2,500 years ago. What are these Truths? What do they mean? How can they alleviate our suffering and find happiness – in this lifetime? This class is about all this and more.
Ven. Lekshay Sangpo studied Zen Buddhism for 20 years. He saw the Dalai Lama in Seattle in 1993 and became a Tibetan Buddhist after finding Dagchen Rinpoche in 1994. He has been a student of H.H. ever since. He received his getsul (novice) vows in 2001 and his gelung (Bhikshu) vows in 2004, both from H.E. Chogye Trichen Rinpoche in Nepal. He has been living and teaching monks at Tharlam Monastery in Nepal five to six months every year since 2000. He has been able to receive many teachings from all the high Sakya lamas during the past 10 years.
