7PM MONDAY, JULY 2 Tsoknyi Rinpoche: Open Heart, Open Mind
Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Tsoknyi Rinpoche III, elder brother of New York Times bestseller Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, presents his new book Open Heart, Open Mind: Awakening the Power of Essence Love.
Rinpoche says that within each of us resides a spark of unparalleled brilliance, an unlimited capacity for warmth, openness, and courage which he calls "essence love." Timeless and imperishable, this essence love is often layered over by patterns of behavior and belief that urge us to seek happiness in conditions or situations that never quite live up to their promise. Drawing on rarely discussed teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, Rinpoche describes how those patterns evolve and offers a series of meditation exercises to unravel them.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR Born in 1966 in Nepal, Tsoknyi Rinpoche is one of the most renowned teachers of Tibetan Buddhism trained outside of Tibet. Deeply versed in both the practical and philosophical disciplines of Tibetan Buddhism, he is beloved by students around the world for his accessible style, his generous and self-deprecating humor, and his deeply personal, compassionate insight into human nature. The married father of two daughters, Rinpoche balances family life with a schedule of teaching around the world and overseeing two nunneries in Nepal, one of the largest nunneries in Tibet, and more than fifty practice centers and hermitages in the eastern region of Tibet.
