The Diamond Sutra focuses on the wisdom and understanding of bodhisattvas. This sutra comes from the Mahayana collection of the Buddha’s teachings and teaches how to be bodhisattvas. Khenpo Jampa received detailed instruction on this sutra from Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche and Kenchen Kunga Wangchuk Rinpoche. Khenpo Jampa will bestow the oral transmission of the Diamond Sutra during the first session and in 5 subsequent classes will provide teaching and commentary. This group study will have opportunities for discussion and questions.
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.
