About the event

We are very fortunate that Khenpo Tashi will be visiting Kagyu Samye Dzong London to give teachings on the weekend of 20th & 21st July. 

The Topic for the teachings will be The Four Dharmas Of Gampopa:

“Grant your blessing that my mind may become one with the Dharma.

Grant your blessing that the Dharma may progress along the path.

Grant your blessing that the Dharma may clarify confusion.

Grant your blessing that confusion may dawn as wisdom.”

The Four Dharmas of Gampopa is the most concise teaching of all of Gampopa’s instructions and covers the entire path. It is also recited as a prayer and is considered to hold great blessings. Gampopa taught that for those who could not meet him in person, encountering his teachings will be equivalent to meeting him in person.

Khenpo Tashi is well trained in both the philosophy and the practice of Buddhism.

In 1981, Khenpo went to Karma Shri Nalanda Institute for higher Buddhist studies at Rumtek in Sikkim, India. After completing the ten-year course of Higher Buddhist studies, he was given the title of “Khenpo”. 

As Khenpo Tashi was skilled in both Buddhist philosophy and meditation, Ven Thrangu Rinpoche appointed him as the main Khenpo/Teacher for the two monastic colleges: Namo Buddha Institute at Namo Buddha, Nepal, where he taught for nine years; and Vajra Vidya Institute in Sarnath, Varanasi, India where he taught for four years.

In 2004, Khenpo entered the traditional three-year retreat at Thrangu Sekar Retreat Center in Bhaktapur, Nepal, remaining for an extra two years and eventually completing retreat in 2009.

Having completed the traditional retreat, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche appointed Khenpo Tashi as a Teacher of Thrangu Monastery in Vancouver, Canada in 2010 where he lived for two years. Khenpo has also taught Buddhism to Westerners and in the past travelled to many countries with Thrangu Rinpoche. 

In early 2013, Rinpoche appointed him the Head Abbot of Vajra Vidya Institute in Sarnath, Varanasi, in India.

We are delighted at this opportunity to receive teachings from Khenpo Tashi in Kagyu Samye Dzong London, and will bring you more details about the teaching topics in due course.

The £5 registration fee is not a payment for the course. There is no charge for our courses and teachings, but donations to help cover the costs of running the centre are very welcome.
