Chenrezi is the Bodhisattva of compassion. For this practice we have two wonderful texts we use at Chenrezi pujas weekly. These texts are rich and meaning and significance. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will explain these two texts in more detail and include teaching on self-generation and front-generation, and dissolution of the deity during the practice. As well, he will teach on proper motivation and how to practice on one’s own with these texts. Rinpoche will also give an oral transmission on the two texts.
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.
