Tulku Tenzin Rigsang - The Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva
April 18th & 19th, Saturday & Sunday
About the teacher
Tulku Tenzin Rigsang was born in Golok, Eastern Tibet, near the Mardo Tashi Choling monastery. He became a monk at a young age and was recognized by the dzogchen yogi Yeshe Wangpo as the reincarnation of his own brother Sherab Gyaltsen. Tulku Rigsang studied with many spiritual teachers including Khenpo Jigme P’huntsog. In India he studied within the Nyingma tradition, at Namdroling monastery and within the Gelug tradition at Drepung monastery. After having completed the entire curriculum, he moved to Dharamsala, where he received many teachings from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, while also studying English and other subjects. In 2013 he was invited to the United States by Khentrul Lodrö Thayé Rinpoche to be a full-time resident teacher at the Katog Rit'hröd Mountain Retreat Center. Tulku Rigsang was selected by Khentrul Rinpoche to help teach the dharma in the United States, both formally and by example, as "he is greatly learned, a pure monk, has few desires, is rich with contentment, and is truly humble."
Topic: The 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva
This text is composed of very profound instructions for cultivating deep perceptions of love and compassion and how, with them we can engage the conduct of the six perfections and connect our body, speech and mind to what is positive. In this way, we learn methods for joining every aspect of this life to virtue and how to cultivate our potential for benefiting others.
