Sakya View and Path
Lecturer: Khenpo Jampa Tenphel Rinpoche
Sunday, November 24, 2013
Translator: Rigdzin Tingkhye
Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche will give an introduction to the Sakya view, which is the inseparability of Samsara and Nirvana. This will be done through helping us understand how to practice the path with its fruit (Lamdre). He will introduce us to how the Buddhadharma is taught in the unexcelled Sakya tradition.
Khenpo Jampa Tenphel Rinpoche comes to us from Dzongsar Institute in India, where he was the library director as well as a tutor for many years. He received a Degree of Acharya (equivalent to an M.A.) in Buddhist Philosophy in 2002 and was ordained as an Abbot in 2004. He has received many teachings and initiations from all four sects of Tibetan Buddhism (Sakya, Gelug, Kagyu, Nyingma). Many of those teachings and initiations were from H.H. the Dalai Lama and H.H. Sakya Trizin. He has also received the Lamdre teaching from H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. His root lamas are H.H. Sakya Trizin, H.H. Luding Khen Rinpoche, and H.H. Dagchen Rinpoche. At Sakya Monastery, Khenpo Jampa teaches intermediate and advanced level curriculum on Buddhist philosophy and also serves as the librarian for the growing collection of Tibetan Buddhist scriptures. He is also the founder and president of Tibetan Education Foundation, as well as the president of the International Association of Non-sectarian Tibetan Religious Traditions(IANTRT) of North America.
Translator Rigdzin Tingkhye was born in Tibet and has many years of translation experience for senior Tibetan Buddhist lamas and geshes. He acts as translator for many lamas.
