Led by Lamas Depa and Lhadrun, we will be exploring in depth Awakening the Sleeping Buddha written by the Twelfth Tai Situpa, Pema Donyo Nyinche. In this book, HE Tai Situ Rinpoche lucidly presents and explains very basic and important principles such as Buddha Nature, Bodhichitta, Reincarnation, Karma and Emptiness. In this class, which includes study, discussion and meditation, we will investigate these principles deeply, and also draw from the works of other Buddhist masters for further elucidation.

 

Guru Vajradhara Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa, The Twelth Tai Situpa, is a great meditation master, scholar, artist, and is the abbot of Sherab Ling Monastery in northern India, as well as the head of our own monastery, Palpung Thupten Choling.
