For Mahayana Practitioners, there are so many teachings and meditations. But in our short lives, we don’t have as much time to devote to study and practice as we’d like. Fortunately, there is a short practice that is very helpful to develop love, compassion, and wisdom. Since the 14th century Tibetan practitioners have practiced this text in their daily lives. The Thirty-Seven Bodhisattva Practices was composed by Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo (1295-1369). Tibetans believe he was the emanation of Chenrezig because he practiced love and compassion actively in his life. In this teaching, Tulku Yeshi will share about this extraordinary master and give a commentary on the first half of the 37 practices.
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. He also writes novels, poetry for mind training, provides Tibetan astrology readings, and can bestow empowerments. He is also a Chod master. Currently he is working on Dharma activities at Sakya Monastery in Seattle. He is now working on producing a documentary on His Holiness Jigdal Dagchen Rinpoche’s life. Tulku Yeshe Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist master, poet and author. He has published ten books about philosophy, life, nature, peace and magic. He is the founder of Tibetan Zen, and he has given the Tibetan Zen teaching in many places. His book, “Tibetan Zen”, will be available in 2013. His autobiography, “A Modern Liberation Odyssey”, is available now.
