Demo Rinpoche – Introduction to Vajrayana

DEMO RINPOCHE

INTRODUCTION TO VAJRAYANA
The Four Levels of Tantra

Vajrayana, or Buddhist Tantra, is the esoteric part of Mahayana Buddhism, based on the desire to attain enlightenment for the benefit of others. Practiced in its most complete form in Tibetan Buddhism, it includes the use of mantras and mudras and the visualization of enlightened beings in pure environments or mandalas. Demo Rinpoche will give an introduction to the four levels of tantra.

Note - Demo Rinpoche recommends participation in the October 12 - 13 program, Instructions on the Middle Way, as supportive preparation for this program.

Demo Rinpoche entered Drepung Loseling Monastery in Mundgod at the age of five and officially joined the monastery in 1987, where he spent nearly thirty years of uninterrupted education in meditation, debate, memorization, philosophy, and composition under the Dalai Lama’s direct supervision. After completing his studies at Drepung, Rinpoche received the highest monastic degree of Geshe Lharampa from Gelugpa University in India in 2011. He continued his studies at Gyume Tantric College and was a visiting scholar under the auspices of the Dalai Lama at Sera College of Higher Tibetan Studies in Dharamsala. At the request of Gelek Rimpoche, Demo Rinpoche came to the United States, where he received his Master’s Degree in Inter-Religious Engagement from Union Theological Seminary in New York City in 2018. Currently based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he serves as the Resident Spiritual Advisor at Jewel Heart.
