Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche – The Spirit of Awakening: Bodhicitta

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

1-1Join us for a day of dharma at Temple University with our teacher, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche. In this precious and rare opportunity, Rinpoche will conduct two public teachings on bodhicitta, a central concept in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. Bodhicitta, or “mind of awakening,” is often described as the seed of liberation. It is the mind that gives rise to the wish for all beings to be free from suffering as well as to attain liberation for the welfare of others.

Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche is a widely celebrated Buddhist teacher and the author of Emotional RescueRebel Buddha, and many other books. A lover of music, art, and urban culture, Rinpoche is a poet, photographer, accomplished calligrapher, and visual artist.

Acknowledged as one of the foremost scholars and meditation masters of his generation in the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche is known for his sharp intellect, humor, and easygoing teaching style. In 2017, he launched the initiative #GoKind to celebrate and encourage acts of kindness around the world.
