Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche DVD retreat
On this retreat we will watch DVDs of Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche’s last retreat he gave at Maitripa Centre in April 2012. The program will include yoga and pranayama sessions with Traleg Khandro, chanting and singing, shamatha meditation, walking meditation and the traditional ritual practices of Green Tara and Chenrezig Pujas.
Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX was born in Eastern Tibet and enthroned as the Supreme Abbott of Thrangu Monastery by His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa. Rinpoche underwent rigorous scholastic and meditative training under various Tibetan Kagyu and Nyingma masters in India and Bhutan and came to Australia in 1980. In Australia Rinpoche is the spiritual director of E-Vam Institute Melbourne, Maitripa Centre, Healesville, and Yeshe Nyima: Indo-Tibetan Yoga in Harris Park. Rinpoche also established E-Vam Institute, New York, and Nyima Tashi Kagyu Buddhist Centre, Auckland.
Rinpoche became well known for his erudition, fluency in English and background in western psychology, comparative religion and philosophy. He inaugurated the annual Buddhist Summer School, now in its 31st year, and the bi-annual Buddhism and Psychotherapy Conferences, which have been hosted for more than a decade. He is the author of a number of books including The Essence of Buddhism now in its third printing, and established Shogam Publications, which has three titles to date. cgdamenoutlet cgdamenoutlet cgdamenoutlet
