Tranquility Meditation: Lama Lakshey's Wed night series continues through the month of June. For this series, Lama Lakshey has chosen the topic of Tranquility Meditation. Each week in the series will cover the overall theme of Tranquility meditation and within this framework Lama Lakshey will teach both Shamatha (calm abiding) & Vipassana (insight) meditation according to the Vadrayana tradition.
The Wed night series is a hybrid event, if you are in the San Francisco Bay Area feel free to join with us at TMC Santa Cruz or also you can join online. If you register for the online event you also have access to the recordings for the series while the series is active.
Given that this topic is taught in stages of experiential development, Lama Lakshey recommends that attendees attempt to either join for the live session or listen to the audio of all the cycles.
Lama Lakshey Zangpo Rinpoche, born in eastern Tibet, trained in the Kathok Nyingma tradition with H.H. Jigme Phuntsok. Lama Lakshey was recognized at a young age as a Tulku, and was later enthroned by H.H. Katok Getse Rinpoche, the seventh head of the Nyingma tradition. Lama Lakshey will provide programs in Tibetan Buddhism, meditation, and Eastern contemplative psychology.
