The Aspiration of Samantabhadra is a powerful sutra from Lord Buddha’s teachings. By reciting this sutra, you will come to understand the aspirations of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. If you wholeheartedly practice the Aspiration of Samantabhadra with Bodhicitta mind, you can liberate countless sentient beings from the ocean of suffering. Tulku Yeshi recently completed a commentary to this great prayer and will share his insights.
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 twenty-five 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. He is now working on producing a documentary on His Holiness Jidgal Dagchen Rinpoche’s life.
