Online Talk: How Karma Works
It’s all your karma. What does that mean? Is your life all planned out and going according to your Karma? Does this mean you have to just accept everything? Are you able to take control and influence your life circumstances? What is the difference between good karma and bad karma? Khentrul Rinpoche explains in a very accessible way the meaning of Karma while clarifying the common misconceptions of karma. Rinpoche will help clarify how karma relates to the Buddhist concept of Merit.
Khentrul RinpochéJonang Kalachakra & Rimé Master
Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 1, 2, and 3, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.
Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of Peace and Harmony (Dzokden).
