Time: 3 – 5 pm.
The public is invited to meet Khen Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan for his annual visit to Heartsong Yoga in East Longmeadow, on Saturday, October 19, from 3 to 5 pm. He is the founder of the Siddhartha School in Ladakh, India, with its beginnings as a one room shack, now an exemplary school with over 300 Tibetan students who live there in exile, grades K through 10. He is also head abbot of the Tashi Lhumpo Monastery in Karnataka, India. This is in the absence of the 11th Panchen Lama, one of Tibet’s most revered reincarnating masters and traditionally Tashi Lhunpo’s abbot, who has been missing since the Chinese Government took him and his family into custody when he was 4 years old. Questions and discussion included, along with a meditation and blessing, in this rare opportunity to meet a Tibetan Monk in an ‘up close and personal’ intimate gathering. He will share with us his practices of ‘Wisdom Teachings’ with Tibetan Buddhist techniques for experiencing joy in everyday life. No pre registration is required, but please call with any questions, 413-525-0870, or visit the web at heartsongyoga.com. Heartsong is located at 264 North Main Street, in the Condo East building on Rt. 83. This event is free and open to all, and donations will be accepted for The Siddhartha School.
