One of the greatest masters in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition will be in Perth next month.
English speaking and a 32-year-old Buddhist monk, His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, was the senior tutor to His Holiness the Dalai Lama in his last life.
Ling Rinpoche was recognised as the reincarnation of the 6thLing Rinpoche after an exhaustive process involving recognising people and objects from his last life, aspects of his birth, and finally, recognition by the Dalai Lama.
Rinpoche presents the 2,500-year-old wisdom of the Buddha in a way that can help today’s busy people lead a more relaxed, meaningful life by better understanding themselves and the way they relate to others.
In 2016, he was awarded a Geshe Degree (equivalent of a PhD) from Drepung Loseling Monastic University in South India and continues to be guided by the Dalai Lama.
“The most important step in spiritual growth is the decision to avoid evil and cultivate goodness within your stream of being. On the basis of this fundamental discipline, every spiritual quality becomes possible,” he said.
Rinpoche has taught around the world and Perth is the only city he is visiting in Australia on this tour.
The Dalai Lama said Ling Rinpoche will be one of two highly realised lamas who will continue his legacy after he passes away.
Rinpoche’s tour is being organised by Hayagriva Buddhist Centre which is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT), an international network of Buddhist centres, retreat facilities, monasteries, charities and publishing houses.
Public Talk: 7pm Friday 23 March 2018, Octagon Theatre, University of Western Australia.
