Anyen Rinpoche Teaches on Profound Text “37 Practices of a Bodhisattva”
with Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Choying Zangmo
August 25 – 27
Anyen Rinpoche, who will teach on the “37 Practices of a Bodhisattva” Aug. 25 – 27 at Karme Choling, often speaks of the profound blessings showered upon the practitioner who truly serves their lama with devotion.
“My lama really tamed my way of thinking and my arrogance and pride,” said Rinpoche. “Whatever good qualities I have are from my lama, but especially, the quality I got through him is that I always think about others first, how others feel.”
Anyen Rinpoche was raised by a family of yak herders in the high forested mountains of eastern Tibet, a place with almost no evidence of modern life. When he was just three days old, he was recognized as a tulku by the great Dzogchen yogi Chupur Lama, who was living in the same yak-wool tent as Rinpoche’s family.
When the young tulku was 7 years old, he exhibited intense and profound devotion upon hearing the name of the great master Khenchen Tsara Dharmakirti Rinpoche, who would become his root guru.
Anyen Rinpoche not only gained recognition as a great scholar (khenpo), but also became a heart son of his root lama.
The “37 Practices of the Bodhisattva” is a powerful Buddhist text on training the mind in kindness and compassion. It is a guide that teaches us practical ways to turn difficult situations into opportunities for growth and transformation.
Rinpoche will be accompanied by his partner Allison Choying Zangmo, an accomplished translator of the Tibetan language who has been teaching the dharma under Rinpoche’s guidance since 2017.
