His Eminence The 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche To Visit Milarepa Center

Milarepa Center is incredibly fortunate and humbled by the acceptance of our request for H.E. Ling Rinpoche to visit and bless Milarepa Center! Due to Rinpoche's amazing kindness in visiting many many centers on a very large US tour, the visit to Milarepa Center will be limited to 2 Dharma talks, schedule and topic details here:

Friday: August 9, 2019: 7-9 pm: "The Importance of Private Retreat in the Development Of Your Dharma Practice"

Saturday: August 10, 2019: 10 - 11:30 am: "How To Develop Bodhichitta and Emptiness"

His Eminence Ling Rinpoche was born in India on November 18, 1985. In 1987, His Holiness The Dalai Lama recognized him as the reincarnation of his own Senior Tutor, The 6th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche, who passed away in 1983. H.E. the 7th Ling Rinpoche has traveled to teach in many countries including in Asia and Europe, Australia, Canada, the United States & Israel, as well as in many Tibetan settlements throughout India, Nepal and the Himalayan regions.
