Shambhala Los Angeles is delighted to welcome Venerable Tulku Damchö Rinpoche!

It is with great pleasure that Shambhala Los Angeles hosts Venerable Tulku Damchö Rinpoche to give a special public talk to our community.  Rinpoche will discuss how we can work with and transform our difficult emotions into the Path of Awakening. These Buddhist wisdom teachings give us practical techniques to navigate the complexities of emotions, turning them into catalysts for growth and awakening. This talk offers insights and actionable steps to cultivate inner peace and spiritual resilience amidst life's challenges.

Tulku Damchö Rinpoche (b. 1973) has lived a life suffused by Dharma, immersed in the activities of Thrangu Monastery and its global work. From an early age he wished to receive monastic vows, and aspired to be a monk at Thrangu Tashi Choling, in Bodnath, Nepal. Even though he was very small at the time and was refused admission, he would not leave until Thrangu Rinpoche decided to take him. While at the monastery, Thrangu Rinpoche found his behavior and his studies were unlike other monks. He has special characteristics as a dharma practitioner, scholar and teacher. He is famous among the Thrangu community for being an expert on sadhanas (spiritual practices).  His Eminence T’ai Situ, Rinpoche recognized him as a reincarnation of Lama Tsoknyi, an important teacher of the Kagyu tradition. Tulku Damchö completed the traditional 3 year retreat as well as an additional year of Kalachakra retreat in 2007.

This talk is open to the public.  It is both in person at our Burbank center and online via Zoom (hybrid).  The Burbank in-person registration is limited.
