third Saturday of the month
10:00am–12:00pm PST (Pacific Standard Time)
February 20, 2021
We are honored and delighted that Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa has accepted our request to continue teaching the Delam.
Rinpoche will continue teaching from his book, The Easy Path: Illuminating the First Panchen Lama's Secret Instructions, which makes available for the first time in English, the First Panchen Lama Losang Chokyi Gyaltsen's Easy Path (Delam), a text nearly 400 years old. The text is considered one of the eight great lam-rim texts, and part of a lineage that comes from Lama Tsongkhapa (1357–1419 CE) down through Gyalwa Ensapa (1505–1566) to the First Panchen Lama (1570–1662) and eventually to our modern day through Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa.
As one of the last generation of Tibetan Buddhist scholars to begin their educational careers in Tibet prior to the Chinese invasion, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa has played an instrumental role in the reestablishment and preservation of Tibetan Buddhist traditions in exile, and in the spread of Tibetan Buddhism to the Western world. Highly regarded for his scholarship and depth of religious practice, Rinpoche teaches frequently in New York, Washington D.C., and at Do Ngak Kunphen Ling (DNKL), a Tibetan Buddhist center in Connecticut, where he hosted a visit from the Dalai Lama in 2012. He is abbot emeritus of Gyumed Tantric College, head of Mey College’s Thewo regional house at Sera Monastery—one of the largest Tibetan monasteries in exile—and Spiritual Director of DNKL.
