Working with Karma - How to Avoid Suffering & Attain Happiness
Venue : The Blazing Wisdom Institute
8 Verdi Ave, Tuckahoe, NY 10707
The Supreme Abbot of Thubten Chokhor Ling Monastery in Golok, Tibet, His Holiness Orgyen Kusum Lingpa is a pre-eminent Dzogchen teacher and Nyingma lineage holder, and is renowned as one of the greatest living revealers of mind treasure teachings of Padma Sambhava. The great Dzogchen Rinpoche prophesied the birth of His Holiness as an emanation of wrathful compassion (Vajrapani). He has also been recognized as an incarnation of the realized master Drilbupa and of Lha-lung Palgyi Dorje, one of the heart disciples of Guru Rinpoche, Padma Sambhava.
On the basis of The Great Perfection Essential Heart Teachings of Padma, His Holiness will teach on working with karma to increase our well-being and remove suffering, and thus to understand and transform the experiences we undergo in this life.
Suffering comes from ignorance, and particularly from our failure to understand karma. Gaining a true understanding of karma - the workings of cause of effect - therefore enables us to recognize cause and effect at play in our life experiences and helps us work with karma, instead of against karma. By working with karma, we uproot suffering and plant the seeds of happiness.
This practical teaching will shed new light on this vital topic. His Holiness is known for his humorous delivery of apt observations to help each person gain greater skill in working with his/her own life circumstances.
The Tibetan-English interpreter for this event is our Executive Director, Lama Sherab Dorje, who has been the personal interpreter and heart disciple of His Holiness for many years
