HE Garchen Rinpoche-Public Talk: "Karma and Loving Kindness"
HE Garchen Rinpoche is a Tibetan Buddhist teacher in the Drikung Kagyu lineage. He is believed to be an incarnation of Siddha Gar Chodingpa, a heart-disciple of Jigten Sumgön, founder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage in the thirteenth century.

-Enduring Hardship-
At the age of 22, after completing a two and a half year retreat, he was imprisoned for 20 years during the political turmoil of China's Cultural Revolution. While in the labor camp, he received meditation instruction from his root lama, the Nyingma master Khenpo Munsel. Enduring hardship and practicing secretly, Garchen Rinpoche attained realization of the lama's wisdom mind.

Since his release from prison in 1979, Garchen Rinpoche has made great effort to rebuild the Drikung Kagyu monasteries, reestablish the Buddhist teachings, and build two boarding schools for local children in eastern Tibet. Rinpoche is the founder and spiritual director of the Garchen Buddhist Institute in Chino Valley, Arizona. Rinpoche is the subject of a recently released documentary (available on dvd) entitled: "For the Benefit of All Beings" by Christina Lundberg.

-Dedicated To The Welfare of Others-
His own teacher, the great Khenpo Munsel, was astonished by Rinpoche's vast achievement. Khenpo Munsel called him "an emanation of a Bodhisattva," a being completely dedicated to the welfare of others. When you look at Rinpoche's life, when you experience his light, you can see he is one such being.

HE Garchen Rinpoche is known for his vast realization, as well as for his great kindness. His message of love speaks to the hearts of all of us. We hope you can join us for this special event.

Rinpoche will speak in Tibetan and the talk will be translated into English by Ina Dhargye. ASL/sign language interpreter Rainstar Barger. This venue is wheelchair accessible.
