The Sakya School of Tibetan Buddhism originated from the early efforts of the five Founding Fathers. They have inspired hundreds of thousands of Buddhist practitioners with their wisdom, knowledge, and compassion. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will share some of their very important teachings in this lecture.
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 forty 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.
