Based on ancient Buddhist techniques, this modern guidebook to lojong (also known as The Seven Key Points of Mind Training) provides a step-by-step approach for transforming emotional pain, anxiety, and stress into complete mental well-being that benefits us and the people around us. Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Sharon Salzberg, Tara Brach, and others have praised this book, with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche stating “... with crystal clear insight into the complexities of modern life, the exceptionally learned Khentrul Lodro T’haye Rinpoche inspires his readers to take up those same ancient tools of lojong to infuse their lives with more compassion, equanimity, understanding, patience, and loving kindness for others."
THE WISDOM SEAT AUTHOR SERIES
Following this public talk, The Wisdom Seat will be hosting an 8-week book study, which will include a meditation session, review of the material, and Q&A.
Khentrul Lodro Thaye Rinpoche
Khentrul Rinpoche has taught widely throughout the United States, Australia, and South Africa to thousands of students. Acknowledged as a scholar at the highest level and a tulku, Rinpoche received the Khenpo title three times (the equivalent of a Doctor of Philosophy) and was recognized by His Holiness Katog Moksa Rinpoche as a tulku (a reincarnate master) of Drubtop Namkha Gyamtso of Katog Monastery. He has received the entire Nyingt'hig lineage (including Nyingt'hig Yabzhi, Dzod Dun, Ngalso Khorsum, Yeshe Lama, and Chetzun Nyingt'hig), as well as many empowerments, scriptural transmissions, and explanations on the pith instructions for Great Perfection (Dzogchen) practice. From H.H. Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche, H.H. Dodrubchen Rinpoche, H.H. Penor Rinpoche, and H.H. Katog Moksa Rinpoche, he received all of the empowerments and scriptural transmissions for the Kama and Terma cycles of the Nyingma school.
Rinpoche speaks proficient English and is fluent in Tibetan and is known for his knowledge, kindness, and sense of humor. His translator, Paloma Lopez Landry, has been working with him for 20 years. She is able to both alternate between the two languages and, as needed, simultaneously translate Tibetan into English while Rinpoche speaks.
