The Seven Points of Mind Training

HIS EMINENCE ZURMANG GHARWANG RINPOCHE

Saturday, November 18 & Sunday, November 19

 

His Eminence Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche teaches Tibetan Buddhist meditation and philosophy worldwide. Born a prince of the Sikkimese Royal Court, he was recognized by His Holiness the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa as the 12th incarnation of the Gharwang Tulkus. As supreme lineage holder of the Whispered Lineage of the Zurmang Kagyu tradition, Rinpoche continues the activity of the unbroken line of the Gharwang Tulkus. This line traces back to the great 14th century Tibetan siddha, Trung Mase, an emanation of the Indian mahasiddha, Tilopa, and founder of Zurmang Monastery and the Zurmang Kagyu tradition.
