  • Buddha Dharma: An Indian Heritage

Rinpoche will give a teaching on the quintessential purity and relevance of Buddha’s teachings and place it in the context of India’s rich cultural heritage, emphasizing the need to preserve and practice it.

“Buddha’s teaching is like a Lion’s Roar, ‘Simhanada’, the only danger to a lion is the decay from within. And to prevent this it is essential for the authentic teachings of the Buddha to be studied and practiced with a vast attitude. From a simple export value perspective, compare the quality of India’s rich buddhist heritage and the respect it commands worldwide…it is the greatest creation it has ever produced — the stainless teachings and wisdom of Gautama Buddha.”

  • The Perfection of Wisdom

Rinpoche will introduce two new 84000 translations from the Perfection of Wisdom section: The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom, the Blessed Mother (The Heart Sūtra) and The Perfection of Wisdom in Eighteen Thousand Lines.
