Phowa is a yogic practice that assists the transference of consciousness at the time of death. When practicing this, we are rehearsing, in effect, this process. Each session includes teaching and practice. Following this day’s event, there will be a monthly Amitabha prayer practice at Sakya Monastery. The monthly practice will begin later in the fall — check calendar for details.
Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche comes to us from the Dzongsar Insitute in North India, where he taught and served as library director for many years. He received his Degree of Acharya after nine years of study and was graduated as Khenpo in 2004 after thirteen years of study. He spent seventeen years studying with his main teacher, H.E. Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk. He has received empowerments from all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and from many great masters including H.H. the Dalai Lama, H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche, H.H. Karmapa, and H.E. Dzongsar Khyentse. He now teaches intermediate and advanced level classes on Buddhist philosophy, sutra and highest yoga tantra all over the world.
