Buddhist Tantra, a special Mahayana Buddhist practice transmitted and practiced for centuries, was brought from India to Tibet. It is based entirely on the realization of emptiness and the pursuit of the welfare of all beings. Dagyab Kyabgön Rinpoche has been teaching Buddhist Tantra for decades in the West and East and is considered one of the greatest tantric masters of our time due to his training and ability.
The tools of tantra include mantra, mudra, and meditation. Its principles lie in the five Buddha families. It encompasses symbolism as well as the deepest levels of meditation and philosophy. Rinpoche’s talk will explain the inner logic of the tantric method, without flashiness or mystical embellishments, because “the secret of tantra lies not in tantra itself but in our limited abilities to conceive it.”
His Eminence Loden Sherab Dagyab Kyabgön Rinpoche was born in East Tibet in 1940. At the age of four he was recognized as the 9th Kyabgon (protector) of the region of Dagyab. Rinpoche is one of the highest tulkus in Tibet. In 1959, Rinpoche escaped with His Holiness the Dalai Lama to India. From 1964 to 1966, he directed Tibet House in New Delhi, an internationally recognized institute for the preservation and support of Tibetan culture.
H.E. Dagyab Rinpoche came to Germany in 1966 in response to an invitation from Bonn University to work as a Tibetologist at its Institute for Central Asian Studies. In the 1980’s, due to the explicit request of people interested in Buddhism, he became active as a spiritual teacher for Europeans. The Buddhist community, Chödzong, came into being as a result of this collaboration and together with Rinpoche founded Tibet Haus Germany.
