Join us for this special seminar, which offers an introduction to the Buddhist path, how it can help us understand the world and our place within it, and the role it can play in transforming our lives. Suited for newcomers and experienced practitioners alike, this program provides a foundation for the path of practice and study offered by Bodhi Path Buddhist centers.
Karma Trinlay Rinpoche, one of the first Westerners to be recognized as a reincarnate master within Tibetan Buddhism, was born in Switzerland to an American mother and French father. At the age of three Trinlay Rinpoche was recognized as a reincarnation by the 16th Karmapa. He began his monastic training with Kalu Rinpoche shortly thereafter. Rinpoche teaches at Bodhi Path centers around the world, and has contributed to the development of the Bodhi Path curriculum. Renowned for his vast knowledge, easy manner, and eloquent, precise style, Trinlay Rinpoche brings fresh clarity to traditional subjects.
