Jewel Heart hosts H.E. Ling Rinpoche for teachings on Je Tsongkhapa’s Three Principles of the Path as well as a Manjushri Empowerment during the 600th anniversary of Je Tsongkhapa’s enlightenment.
The Three Principles of the Path, a famous text in verse by Je Tsongkhapa, is a condensed summation of the entire path to enlightenment, offering guidelines to help us integrate three transformational motivations – determination to be free of suffering, to generate unlimited compassion, and to develop the wisdom that understands the nature of reality.
The Orange Manjushri Arapatsa Empowerment was onsite only.
His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, in 1985. In 1987, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of His Holiness the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche (1903 – 1983), who was the most Senior Tutor of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
The 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was His Holiness’ main teacher and spiritual advisor throughout his lifetime, and accompanied His Holiness when he fled into exile from Tibet in 1959. His Holiness refers to him as “my Root Guru”. He was also the 97th Gaden Throne Holder – the supreme head of the Gelugpa tradition, which is the largest tradition in Tibetan Buddhism.
Beginning with Charka the Arhat Udhay during the time of Lord Shakyamuni Buddha, twenty previous incarnations of H.H. the 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche have been identified, including Tutors to His Holiness the 6th, 11th and 13th Dalai Lamas; the 48th and 75th Gaden Throne Holders; as well as kings, yogis, scholars, and lay adepts prominent in the spiritual histories of India and Tibet.
H.E. the 7th Ling Rinpoche has completed all five Geshe Studies subjects (Logic, Perfection of Wisdom, Middle Way, Higher Knowledge, and Monastic Discipline) and was awarded His Geshe Degree from Drepung Loseling Monastic University in South India, in November 2016. H.E. 7th Ling Rinpoche has also recently completed a year of further studies at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala. His Holiness the Dalai Lama continues to closely guide Him.
H.E. the 7th Ling Rinpoche has traveled to teach in many countries including in Asia and Europe, Australia, Canada, The United States & Israel, as well as in many Tibetan settlements throughout India, Nepal and the Himalayan regions.
