KIBI Karmapa Public Teaching Course 2018
March 20, 2018
Alongside His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, some of
our leading Buddhist scholars from both traditional and academic backgrounds were among us this past week: ¨Professor Sempa Dorje, who is a personification of Tibetan Buddhism; Khenchen Chodak Tenphel Rinpoche, one of our senior Khenpos; Khenpo Lobsang, who is a Faculty member of KIBI; Tulku Trinley Rinpoche and Khenpo Tsering, who combine their traditional education with a contemporary style of teaching.
On Sunday March18th 2018, we concluded the Karmapa Public Course 2018 with a Chenresig empowerment, bestowed by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa to all participants and local devotees.
Our fortunate karmic connection of being together this week is the result of a seed planted by the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and the 14th Shamar Rinpoche, thanks to their main vision of gathering an international Buddhist community, as well as their wish to promote the learning of the Buddha Dharma for oneself in order to benefit all sentient beings.
Lastly, we would like to thank all the volunteers and staff members who made this a successful event!
