Certification on the Stages of Buddhist Practice to Reach Enlightenment

Venerable Khangser Rinpoche & assistant Dr. Vesna A. Wallace Professor at the University of California & Bhante Ujwal The Thangkar Monastic Institute presents the Lam Rim Certification on the Stages of Buddhist Practice to Reach Enlightenment Organ

Khangser Rinpoche presently serves as a spiritual teacher at Sera Jey Monastic University, one of the three great Monastic Universities affiliated with the Gelugpa tradition which follows the rich culture and knowledge of the ancient Nalanda University, established in Tibet in 15th century. He teaches Buddhist philosophy to several hundred fully ordained monks and novices. He also teaches Buddhism according to Nyingma and Kagyu traditions at several Nyingma and Kagyu monasteries in Dharamsala, India and Nepal. In addition, Khangser Rinpoche delivers public teachings on Tibetan Buddhism to diverse audiences from India, Nepal, Vietnam, China, Korea, Tibet and the West. His audiences congregate at various universities, public agencies, Buddhist centers, and Tibetan Settlements in India and Nepal.

The highly venerated Khangser Rinpoche is the eighth incarnated lama, born in a Himalayan family. His ancestors followed the Nyingma tradition for centuries. Since Rinpoche’s line of reincarnations is affiliated with the Gelug tradition, he possesses both precious heritages. Rinpoche is a great scholar who achieved mastery in both the Gelug and Nyingma Buddhist traditions. He is fully absorbed with the teachings of the great mind training of the Kadampa tradition. Although Khangser Rinpoche is young, he is extremely bright. He has directly received a wealth of teachings on both Tantra and Sutra from many great Tibetan yogis and spiritual teachers from four major Tibetan Buddhist sects. Some of his teachers include His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Kyabje Dilgo Kysentse Rinpoche, Lati Rinpoche, Khensur Lobsang Tsering, Khe Tsun Sangpo Rinpoche, and Choegye Trichen Rinpoche.
Rinpoche is recognized as one of the great teachers of the 21st century, adorned with boundless compassion and possessing the eagerness to cultivate the seed of loving kindness in the mind stream of all sentient beings. Khangser Rinpoche is an invincible debater, endowed with convincing speech which is in accordance with the modern world view. Thus, he attracts countless listeners and brings the light of hope to many suffering hearts.

Dr. Vesna Wallace, Professor of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Dr. Wallace is a specialist in Indo-Tibetan Buddhism and noted scholar of the Kālācakra Tantra and its cultures, who in recent years has been working closely with Buddhists and Buddhist materials from Mongolia.
