Lama Choedak Rinpoche, Spiritual Director of the Tibetan Buddhist Society of Canberra and Rongton Buddhist College will give a talk on the subject of esoteric truths in Tibetan Buddhism
and the fundamental common aims and ideals that underpin religious and spiritual endeavors across all faiths and practices.
Born in Tibet, Rinpoche escaped with his parents in the early 1960s to Nepal where he completed his secondary education, being the first of the many Tibetan refugees to complete the Nepalese secondary schooling certificate. He undertook 12 years rigorous training as a Buddhist monk of the Sakya Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism under the guidance of His Eminence Chogye Trichen Rinpoche, one of the finest Tibetan teachers of this time (b 1920 - d 2007). In 1980, sponsored by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Rinpoche completed a traditional three-and-a-half year solitary Lamdre meditation retreat. He has translated for some of the most important teachers of all four traditions of Tibetan Buddhism including the late tutors of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Rinpoche is one of the few Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Masters living in Australia. He has been teaching meditation in the West for more than 25 years.
