With Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma

An In-Person Teaching on Saturday, June 24th
University Place Hotel at Portland State University
9:00 AM - 12:30 PM Pacific
Dear friends,

Tergar Meditation Community of Portland is delighted to announce that Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma will be offering a morning teaching, The Fearless Open Heart of a Bodhisattva, on Saturday, June 24th at the University Place Hotel at Portland State University.
Described as a living embodiment of the Bodhisattva ideal, Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma was recognized by His Holiness the Dalai Lama as a realized practitioner. For a number of years, Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma has served as an advisor to Mingyur Rinpoche and other Tibetan lamas on a range of decisions and has taught around the world inspiring practitioners of all stages.

Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma’s teachings in Portland, June 24-26, are being jointly hosted by Tergar International, Tergar Portland and Maitripa College, where she will be teaching on Lojong June 25-26.
We hope you can join us for this very special event!
People try spiritually to achieve realization. The true realization is to achieve a kind heart. Other than that, there is nothing really that is useful.

—Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma

During this event, Khandro Tsering Kunga Bum-ma, (lovingly known as “Khandro-la”), a realized practitioner, will provide insight and wisdom into the teachings of the Bodhisattva, referring to individuals who have dedicated their lives to awakening in order to free all beings from suffering.

As a living embodiment of a Bodhisattva, Khandro-la will share her direct experience of how bodhichitta, the heartfelt commitment to help all beings awaken to their true nature, allows us to move beyond our limitations of fear and doubt, and develop greater courage and confidence. Her teachings will demonstrate how being empowered with a fearless open heart will serve to help us approach challenging situations with greater equanimity and resilience. By cultivating the qualities of fearlessness and compassion through bodhichitta, Khandro-la will show us how a profound sense of purpose and meaning will arise within our hearts and become a source of strength and benefit to ourselves and others.

There are no prerequisites for this event. It is appropriate for any meditator who wishes to engage more deeply on the bodhisattva path.
Best wishes from Tergar Meditation Community of Portland!
