End of the Year Public Teaching: Use Your Brain: How to Cultivate Discriminating Awareness on the Path

End of the Year Public Teaching: Use Your Brain: How to Cultivate Discriminating Awareness on the Path

This is a FRE event and is available both Online and In-person.

As we head towards the end of the year, Khentrul Rinpoche will guide us through a thought process to understand what type of Dharma we are practicing, for what reason, and how that reflects in our life priorities. If you ask most people, they will say they are practicing Dharma to benefit all sentient beings or to get out of Samsara. Maybe they will say they are practicing mindfulness and meditation to deal better with their life and reduce their anxiety. There are many reasons in why people choose to practice Dharma. These reasons may be based in wisdom and compassion or they may be based in Samsaric motivations. Rinpoche will help guide us in an end-of-the-year self-reflection so we can dig deeper into our own minds and uncover our blind spots in our intentions. By discovering our true intentions with our practice, we can create the opportunity in the new year to truly transition into a deeper level of practice, walking more fully on the path mindfully with discriminating awareness.

Awaken through Suffering on the Sutrayana Path with Khentrul Rinpoche

Awaken through Suffering on the Sutrayana Path with Khentrul Rinpoche

This is a FREE event and is available both Online and In-person.

While the Buddha taught that life is suffering, he also taught that there is a way to become free from suffering. In this evening’s free public talk, Shar Khentrul Jamphel Lodrö Rinpoche will teach powerful mind-training techniques from the Sutrayana path of Buddhism to help us learn to cope with life and transform it. While we can’t prevent life’s challenges, we can become skillful in dealing with them.

Suffering can appear in our lives in so many forms, such as the easy-to-do identify suffering of illness, job loss, divorce, or other adverse life circumstances. Or suffering can be subtle and sneaky in the form of passing radiantly joyful emotions that are so wonderful we wish they would never leave. Even the best ice cream will melt in the hot sun if not eaten. 

While our feelings and emotions can change momentarily, it does not mean we must be thrown into turmoil by sadness, jealousy, anger, hatred, or frustration. Nor does that mean we must reject our emotions and experiences, hide them, or shame them away. The Buddha taught many precise antidotes that can be learned and used for each emotion to help us work through them as they arise. When this happens we can better achieve all of our life priorities in work, family, or spiritual realization.

These sutra antidotes can help practitioners at all levels. Even a tantric student wishing to work directly with emotion’s energy may find themselves in a moment when reducing the emotion’s intensity is necessary before transforming it.

Saka Dawa Guru Puja for Lama Lutrin

Saka Dawa Guru Puja for Lama Lutrin

This event is FREE and available both Online and In-person.

In Vajrayana Buddhism, the Guru is the Buddha, the Guru is the Dharma, and the Guru is the Sangha. The whole path is contained in the practice of devotion to the Guru, who, while ultimately our enlightened nature, is also a human being who reflects that nature to us. The most powerful Guru is your root guru, the one who points out the nature of reality to you and you transform your mind. 

The light that shows the way on our Kalachakra path is Khentrul Rinpoche. And the one who had the most profound impact on his mind, is his root Guru, Lama Lobsang Trinle. Lama Lobsang Trinley (Lama Lutrin) is one of the most respected Jonang Kalachakra masters of our time. He was well known for his incredible healing powers as he had healed himself from Leprosy and then those around him with his spontaneous medicine wisdom. While showing no signs of sickness, he stated he would pass away and then did so in a meditative state on the precious day of Saka Dawa, the day that we celebrate the birth, enlightenment, and death of Shakyamuni Buddha. 

Join us in the profound practice of the Jonang Guru Puja in honor of the pari-nirvana of Lama Lobsang Trinley. All practices done at this time are incredibly powerful as the merit is multiplied by 100 million times.

Vesak Celebration: 1000 Buddhas Puja & Praises of Shakyamuni

Vesak Celebration: 1000 Buddhas Puja & Praises of Shakyamuni

This event is FREE and available both Online and In-person.

In celebration of the Birth, Death, and Enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha, we recite praises recounting the accomplishments of his incredible life. Connecting and learning from his example, we, too, can take steps to learn and practice in stages to reveal our own enlightened nature. The first step to changing the world to a more peaceful, harmonious place is to change ourselves. It is with each of the karmas we make, each cause and condition, that we plant the seeds to change ourselves and then, through our transformation, the world around us.  Shakyamuni spent years of diligent practice and effort to understand the nature of reality and reveal his own nature before he was able to teach others. Once he transformed himself, his enlightened speech and activity had the power to transform our world and continue to through this day.

In addition to the praises to the Buddha of our time, we will chant the powerful 1000 Buddha Puja to connect with all the 1000 Buddhas of this fortunate eon. Connecting with 1000 Buddhas and sharing their names creates powerful conditions for all who hear this to be reborn in a higher realm and to come into contact with the Dharma. All practices done at this time are incredibly powerful as the merit is multiplied by 100 million times.
