His Eminence the 7th Ling Rinpoche in Switzerland

It is a great honour for the Swiss FPMT centres Longku Bern, Gendun Drupa Martigny and Lhagsam Zürich to welcome H.E. Ling Rinpoche for a weekend teaching in Switzerland.

WHEN: Saturday & Sunday, April 8 & 9
TIME: 10.00-12.00 and 14.30-16.30 (on both days)
WHERE: Landguet Ried Hilfligweg 10, 3172 Niederwangen, Switzerland
LANGUAGE: Tibetan with translation into German, French and English
Registration is required. Please see below for more information.

H.E. Ling Rinpoche is the reincarnation of the 6th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who was the senior tutor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You can read more about him and his lineage here.

Rinpoche will teach on The 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas – a text composed by Gyalse Thogme Sangpo in the 14th century. This is one of the most famous Tibetan texts on mind training. It serves as a practical guide for those on the Boddhisattva path. Rinpoche will also grant an Avalokiteshvara Initiation (Jenang) in the tradition of Lama Atisha.

The Avalokiteshvara Initiation (Jenang) will take place on Sunday afternoon.  Rinpoche requested that participants must attend in person, as well as being a Buddhist with faith in the three jewels and the deity.  The initiation cannot be taken just as a blessing.

About the Teacher

His Eminence the 7th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche was born in India on November 18, 1985. He was taken to the Tibetan Children’s Village in Dharamsala, after his mother died, and stayed there until His Holiness the Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of his Principal Teacher, H.H. the 6th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who passed away in 1983. The 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche entered Drepung Monastic University in South India in 1990 when he was five years old and began his monastic studies there at the age of ten. Rinpoche received his Geshe degree in November 2016 and enrolled at Gyuto Tantric College in Dharamsala, India in April 2017 for a year of tantric studies that traditionally follows the completion of a Geshe degree. He completed his studies in February 2018. During his studies, the 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche spent periods of time in retreat. Since then he has given teachings and tantric initiations in many countries all over the world. Read more here.
