HE Gyana Vajra Rinpoche

ABOUT HIS EMINENCE GYANA VAJRA RINPOCHE

Khöndung Gyana Vajra Rinpoche was born in Dehradun, Northern India, on 5th July 1979, the tenth day of the fifth lunar month of the Tibetan lunar calendar, on the holy birth anniversary of Guru Padmasambhava. Rinpoche’s birth was accompanied by auspicious signs, blessing the Sakya Dolma Phodrang with the arrival of a second lineage holder of the glorious Sakyapa Khön Tradition.
Rinpoche was given the Sanskrit name of Gyana Vajra (Tibetan: Yeshe Dorje), a practice that began with the birth of his noble father, His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin. At the age of four, Rinpoche began to read and write in Tibetan, and was remarkably proficient in his learning. Under the guidance of his noble father and of Venerable Lama Rinchen Sangpo, his early years were dedicated to the study of religious texts, reading, writing, grammar, memorization of the main Sakya prayers and the performance of rituals.
At an early age, Rinpoche joined the Sakya Centre, His Holiness the Sakya Trizin’s main monastery, where he undertook his training in the principal rituals and prayers of the Sakya Tradition. After successfully completing the course of studies at Sakya Centre, Rinpoche joined Sakya College and pursued its curriculum of Higher Philosophical Studies under the guidance of the late Venerable Khenpo Migmar Tsering.
Throughout his life, Rinpoche has received from His Holiness the Sakya Trizin most of the major initiations, empowerments, oral transmissions, blessings and pith instructions that are inherent to the Sakya Tradition, notably the profound Lamdre teachings of ‘Taking the Result as the Path’. Furthermore, Rinpoche has received numerous common and uncommon teachings from some of the preeminent teachers of Tibetan Buddhism of our age, including His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama, the late H.E. Dorje Chang Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, H.E. Luding Khenchen Rinpoche, Khöndung Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, H.E. Luding Khen Rinpoche, H.E. Jetsun Chimey Luding Rinpoche, the late H.E. Deshung Rinpoche and the late H.E. Khenchen Appey Rinpoche.
Rinpoche has, for several years, assisted His Holiness the 41st Sakya Trizin during his noble father’s teaching tours both in India and abroad, while he himself has regularly turned the wheel of Dharma in centers across the world, giving teachings and initiations to disciples in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. Rinpoche is fluent in English, Tibetan and Hindi.

Completed—EMPOWERMENT OF MILAREPA GURU YOGA, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2018 at EWAM CHODEN

September 9, 2018 by  
Filed under Empowerments

Ven. Lama Kunga Thartse Rinpoche will kindly bestow the Empowerment of Jetsun Milarepa Guru Yoga on Sunday, December 16, 2018 at Ewam Choden.
The starting time is 1:00 pm.  Please arrive early to register at the door.
The requested donation is $30.  Dana (offering) to the lama is separate.
Everyone is welcome.  There is no prerequisite.  A practice sadhana will be given and explained.
The empowerment may be received as a blessing.

Jetsun Milarepa (Tibetan: རྗེ་བཙུན་མི་ལ་རས་པ) was a Tibetan siddha, who, guided by his guru Marpa, changed from being a young angry murderer to a Buddhist yogi, finally becoming fully accomplished.
In the Foreword to his book, Drinking the Mountain Stream, Lama Kunga Rinpoche writes:
“Milarepa is one the most celebrated spiritual teachers of all time. He was not only an eminent leader of the Kagyu lineage, but also a very important teacher for all schools of Tibetan Buddhism…..He was a man of three powers. His body was equivalent to the body of Vajrapani, his voice was the voice of Manjushri, and his hearing was the hearing of Avalokiteshvara.”

In the Guru Yoga Empowerment and practice, as we praise the guru for all of his qualities and accomplishments, we are able to imbibe their power and to gain a spark of understanding.
What makes this empowerment especially unique is that our guru, Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche, was recognized as a reincarnation of Seben Repa, one of Milarepa’s heart sons.
This event is not to be missed!
