Join us at Landguet Ried near Bern for a weekend with H.E. Ling Rinpoche. He is the reincarnation of  H.H. the 6th Kyabjé Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, the principal teacher of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. You can read more about him and the lineage here.

H.E. Ling Rinpoche will give us a teaching on the 37 Practices of a Bodhisattva by Gyalse Thogme Sangpo. This is one of the most famous native Tibetan texts on mind training, written in the 14th century. It serves as a practical guide for people who wish to follow the path of a bodhisattva.

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.
