Join us Feb 19th with Charok Lama Rinpoche!!

 Lama, a 24 year old Sherpa Lama, is the incarnation of Nyingma meditator Kushog Mangden of Solo Kumbu, Nepal. Kushog Mangden spent much of his life at Charok, a hermitage close to the Lawudo cave where Kunzang Yeshy, Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s predecessor, spent much of his previous life in meditation.

Born in Thamo village just below Lawudo in 1992, Charok Lama moved to Kopan Monastery when he was only 4 years old and on to Sera Je Monastic University in 2005 to continue his studies. In 2013 he was awarded the prestigious Rik.chung and is now in his second year of Uma (Middle Way) studies. Rinpoche has consistently been top of his class and has attended many of the Jang Gunchu winter debates. Rinpoche’s root teacher at Sera Je is Jangtse Choje Rinpoche.

As Rinpoche is still studying and, therefore, is not yet an approved FPMT teacher this will be a “dharma discussion” only and not a teaching. The topic of the discussion will be Dharma in Daily Life.

  • Please join us at Milarepa Center Sunday, Feb 19th at 1:00 for this unique opportunity
  • This is the only public talk Rinpoche will give during his visit to the US
  • Snacks will be provided and please feel free to bring any healthy additions
  • There is no cost for this event though offerings are welcome
Join us Feb 27th to celebrate Losar, the Tibetan New Year
