Tibetan master to teach in Juneau

Posted: Monday, November 08, 2010

Khentrul Rinpoche will present "Thirty Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva, Part II" from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Nov. 14 at the Vocational Training and Resource Center, 3239 Hospital Drive.

Rinpoche has taught for many years at monasteries in Tibet and India, and is the abbot of Katog Mardo Tashi Choling in Eastern Tibet, where he established a retreat center, library, and shedra (higher philosophical studies institute). He is currently building a school for the monastery's children. He directs the education and spiritual practice for over three hundred monks, of whom there are seventy advanced-degree candidates, one hundred children, and twenty full time retreatants.

Rinpoche began the teaching last year in Juneau and will conclude the teaching this year. Many Juneau residents have participated in Rinpoche's visits in the past. He returns annually to offer the ancient teachings of Tibetan masters.
