Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro : Turning Happiness and Suffering Into Enlightenment

Aug 12, 2017 (12:00 AM) - Aug 13, 2017 (11:59 PM)

Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro Rinpoche

Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro Rinpoche will teach an incredible text on mind training by the great master Dodrupchen Jigme Tenpe Nyima titled Turning Happiness and Suffering Into Enlightenment. This text explains in clear, direct language how to skillfully use our everyday thought processes and experiences of happiness and suffering as supports for developing beneficial qualities.

Please see important general and parking information below.

Due to our seating limitation, advanced registration is required. We will not be able to accept registration at the door. Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche requests your commitment for attendance for the full two days. While registering online, you will notice an opportunity to contribute by making a donation to help the center offset the cost of the teachings.

Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche has also requested transmissions for two additional practices, the Gurkhukma Kilaya and Vajrasattva: The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel. Both of these deity practices are from the visionary revealed teachings of His Holiness Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche. Please join us in receiving these beautiful and practical teachings from a peerless master.

Khenchen Tsultrim Lodro has graciously consented to live stream his teachings at Gar Drolma. This event will be broadcasted live only.  CLICK HERE for the Live Streaming Link.  (If you watch the stream, please consider practicing generosity by making a donation to help insure the continued availability of the dharma.)

If you are not able to attend the teachings, and would like to offer a sponsorship contribution to support this special event, please make your contribution here. It means so much to us!

  • Please bring as little as possible to the shrine room. Because of the anticipated number of attendees, we ask that everyone be mindful of the limited space available.
