We are so grateful to Rinpoche for accepting our invitation.” 

Rinpoche will give three teachings during his visit to London: “The Ten Innermost Jewels of The Kadampas,” “Four Deities of the Kadam Empowerment,” and “In Praise of Dependent Origination.” Two of the in-person teachings will also be streamed online.

On 17 January, Yangten Rinpoche will participate in a public dialogue with Dr. Elena Antonova, a senior lecturer in psychology at Brunel University London and a visiting researcher at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London.

The dialogue can be attended in person or online. Click here for details.

Yangten Rinpoche was born in Tibet, in the traditional region of Kham, in 1978. He was recognized as a tulku when he was 10 years old, and enthroned at Kandze Monstery. At the age of 12, Rinpoche entered the geshe program at Sera Mey Monastery in India, graduating with a Geshe Lharampa degree (with distinction) in 2007, at the age of 29. Rinpoche subsequently joined Gyuto Monastery for two years, where he completed traditional tantric studies. In 2008, he was called by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to work in His Holiness’ private office, where he has worked on numerous projects.

“Over the past few years, we have been fortunate enough to develop a wonderful relationship with Yangten Rinpoche through his online teachings on Lama Tsongkhapa’s Song of Experience,” said Losang Wangyel. “For my part, I was especially moved by the power and compassion of Rinpoche’s advice as he answered sincere questions from students.”

Jamyang London Buddhist Centre was established in 1978 to facilitate the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism following the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. The center is also affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) under the spiritual direction of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and offers a structured curriculum of courses and classes on Buddhist philosophy and practice.
