with Do Tulku Rinpoche
1:00 PM - 1:45 PM
For centuries Himalayan practitioners have used meditation to quiet the mind, open the heart, calm the nervous system, and increase focus. Mindfulness meditation offers a refuge from the world and an opportunity to engage more consciously.
Whether you’re a beginner, a dabbler, or a skilled meditator seeking the company of others, join expert teachers in a 45-minute weekly in-person program. Each session is inspired by a different work of art from the Rubin Museum’s collection. Designed to fit into your lunch break, the program includes an opening talk, a 20-minute sitting session, and a closing discussion. Chairs will be provided.
This week’s in-person meditation session will be led by Do Tulku Rinpoche, and the theme for this month is Realization.
This program is presented in partnership with Sharon Salzberg, and teachers from the New York Insight Meditation Center, the Interdependence Project, and Parabola Magazine and supported by the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation for American Buddhism.
About the Speaker
Do Tulku Rinpoche is the resident lama and spiritual guide of Arya Tara’s Net, an online community and center for Buddhist studies and practice in Windeck, Germany.
Do Tulku Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness Sakya Trichen at the age of 17 as the reincarnation of the 5th Raktrul Rinpoche. His incarnation line goes back to the 1st Raktrul Rinpoche (17th century), a master of the Do Teng Monastery in East Tibet. After his recognition, he received an eleven-year training in Buddhist philosophy, practice, and debate at the Dzongsar Khyentse Chokyi Lodro Institute in India, from which he graduated with the title of an Acharya (Lopön).
Since then, Rinpoche has been teaching and guiding retreats in India, Nepal, Europe, and South America. He has received teachings, transmissions, and initiations from some of the greatest masters of our time, including His Holiness, Dalai Lama, His Holiness, Sakya Trizin, Khenchen Kunga Wangchuk, Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, Dagchen Rinpoche, Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, and many more. He lives in Germany where he teaches regularly.
