Note: Recording begins a couple minutes into the lecture
Belief and correct motivation are two tremendously important things to cultivate. Belief, faith and absolute conviction in the Lama and in the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha) are essential for any attainments. Having the correct motivation is an absolute necessity. In this class, Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche will give us insight on these important topics.
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.
