By request of many different students, Rinpoche will kindly lead a discussion and debate around the Dharma of food.Topic
Khentrul Rinpoche always encourages us to see debates from many views and angles. The age old question on what to eat is no different. He will help walk us through all the different intentions and vantage points we may have when looking at the karma of the actions around what we consume.
Please bring your questions and your best points to this interactive event. Some of the questions that often come up and lead to lot of discussion and confusion – Are Buddhist all peaceful people eating vegetables? In Tibet some Monastery areas sell “naturally died” vs “killed” meat. What’s the difference and do the monks eat meat? If I buy meat at a supermarket am I contributing to killing? Am I violating a vow if I eat meat? What if I need to eat meat for my health, am I a failed Buddhist?

    Khentrul Rinpoche

    Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.

    Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of peace and harmony (dzokden).
