Dudjom Rinpoche's Avalokiteshvara Daily Practice Lung



Lama Sonam Rinpoche gave teachings on this classical Mahayana text by the fourteenth century Tibetan master, Gyalse Ngülchu Thogme Zangpo. According to Rinpoche, Thogme Zangpo was a bodhisattva himself, and an emanation of Avalokiteshvara (Chenrezig). Many stories illustrate his exceptional compassion, even from very early childhood.


Rinpoche says these teachings are really necessary at this time, as we are lost without the compassion of Avalokiteshvara. Learn how to be an extraordinary human being, with dignity, decency, kindness, respect, a sense of community and dedication to serving others.


Rather than living with ordinary selfishness, follow the example of the Bodhisattva to help other humans and animals, and even restore the energy of the environment.
