37 PRACTICES OF THE BODHISATTVA TEACHING & GREEN TARA EMPOWERMENT WITH LAMA KARMA DRODHUL

lamakarmaWe are delighted to announce that Lama Karma Drodhul will be visiting KTCJax for a teaching weekend June 12-14. Lama Karma has not visited Jacksonville for several years. We just had a very eventful visit from Lama Lodro Lhamo and Lama Choenyi but we didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to host Lama Karma, who is an amazing teacher.

Lama Karma Drodul is Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche’s principal attendant and nephew. He became a monk when he was nine years old and at twenty received both getsul (intermediate) and gelong (full) ordination from Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche. Lama Karma excelled in all aspects of dharma study and completed his education in five years. Thrangu Rinpoche sent him to the U. S. to deepen his understanding of the dharma under the tutelage of Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. In March 2004, Lama Karma completed his first and in February 2008 his second traditional three-year, three-month retreat under Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche at Karme Ling Retreat Center. He now is the Drubpon (retreat master) at Karme Ling. He travels to different centers and has a full teaching schedule.

June 12-14, Lama Karma will teach on the “37 Practices of Bodhisattvas.” This core scripture from Tibetan Buddhism has been relied upon for six centuries as a synthesis of the Mahayana teachings, and more specifically as a condensation of the famous (but longer) text called Bodhicharyavatara (The Way of the Bodhisattva) by Shantideva. The 37 Practices is memorized and studied in all Tibetan Buddhist schools.

Lama Karma will give the Green Tara Empowerment and Refuge Saturday, June 13th at 7 pm. For those that attended the Green Tara Retreat with Lama Lodro at the Florida KTC’s, receiving the Green Tara empowerment would complete the 3 requirements for Green Tara practice(reading transmission, instruction, empowerment).
