No Set Fee – Pay Whatever You Can Afford

We are delighted to welcome back Lama Lodu Rinpoche returns to the Rime Center to share teachings and an empowerment focused on 1,000 Arm Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) is said to be the essence of the speech of all the buddhas and incarnation of their compassion. As one of the Eight Great Close Sons, he is usually depicted as white in colour and holding a lotus. He is of special importance to Tibetans, so much so that he is sometimes described as the patron deity of Tibet

Lama Lodru Rinpoche was appointed resident lama of Kagyu Droden Kunchab in San Francisco in 1976 by His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa and His Eminence Kalu Rinpoche. Lama Lodu's teachings are very clear, unique, and profound. They touch the heart of everyone who listens. For example, during an initiation ceremony, Lama will explain every detail. This makes a definite difference in the students understanding of the method and makes it easier to experience the simplicity of the nature of mind.

For every initiation Lama Lodu provides a translated sadhana, daily practice text, which previously were not available or had not been translated into English. The translated texts make it easier to understand and practice.. Lama Lodu is very accommodating to anyone who wants to seriously practice meditation.

The Rime Buddhist Center will gather at the JC Nichols Fountain on the Plaza to observe Tibetan Uprising Day on Tuesday, March 10, 2016.The Tibetan Uprising Day is marked every year in memory of the 1959 Tibetan uprising against the ruling of China in Tibet. The armed rebellion resulted in a violent crackdown on Tibetan inde-pendence movements and consequently led to the Dalai Lama’s flee into exile.

Every year, Tibetans around the world, organizations, and individuals observe the day in ceremonies and events that show solidarity with Tibetans inside Tibet in honor and support of the brave resistance. Join us at the JC Nichols Fountain on the Plaza on Tuesday, March 10, 2015, at 4:30 p.m. to bring attention to the observance of Tibetan Uprising Day.
