Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche will teach on the Six Paramitas. Paramita is a Sanskrit term and means “perfection.” Whether or not we have yet to take on the Bodhisattva vows, the Six Paramitas: generosity, discipline, patience, diligence, meditation and wisdom are virtues to be cultivated to strengthen our practice. By learning about them, we come to know what to take up and what to abandon so that we may attain enightenment in order to benefit all sentient beings.

Born in Kham, in Eastern Tibet, Khenpo Rinpoche became a monk at the age of 12 at Thrangu Monastery undergoing many retreats and rigorous study. In 1958, under the threat of the approaching Communist Chinese, Khenpo Rinpoche escaped to India where he traveled and taught extensively. In 1975, he received the title of "choje lama" (superior dharma master) from His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwa Karmapa. Shortly thereafter, His Holiness sent Khenpo Rinpoche to the United States to serve as the abbot of the Karma Triyana Dharmachakra (KTD) Monastery in Woodstock, NY.

This is a free teaching that is being broadcast to the affiliate centers of Karma Triyana Dharmachakra.

All are welcome to attend regardless of religious affliation
