Teaching on Wisdom & Compassion by Venerable Tenzin Gyurme Rinpoche, on July 5, 2009

His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is a spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism, a noted public speaker he travels extensively around the world giving teachings and public talks promoting human values and religious harmony and understanding. His tireless, efforts on behalf of human rights and world peace have brought him not only a number of awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize, but also a deep respect and admiration by people from different walks of life.
On July 6 this year His Holiness will turn 74, on this occasion Choe Khor Sum Ling is organizing a special teaching on Wisdom & Compassion by Venerable Tenzin Gyurme Rinpoche.
Wisdom & Compassion are the essence of enlightened life, inextricably linked these are the two sides of the same coin. When compassion is taken out of the equation, wisdom turns into worthless platitudes, which easily become destructive. Without compassion, wisdom degenerates into an escapist entanglement in concepts, theories and dogmas
The teaching will focus on how to develop these qualities of mind and how by conjoining your affection and kind-hearted sentiments towards others with wisdom one can bring about improvements in one’s own life and the life of others.
Venerable Tenzin Gyurme Rinpoche is a reincarnated lama from Sera Jey Monastic University in Bylakuppe, Karnataka. A brilliant student, he has been studying Buddhist philosophy for more than 12 years by now.
