Nawang Khechog was ordained a Tibetan Buddhist monk at the age of 13. Later he became a hermit meditator for four years, during which he was personally sponsored, guided, and cared for by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Inspired by the Dalai Lama’s teachings, Nawang will introduce us to topics such as: universal compassion and loving kindness, the nature of mind, cultivating lasting happiness, the transitory nature of life, and unveiling our human potential. These practices helped him recover from a near fatal car accident in 2007. Nawang will also relate the unique story of beloved yogi saint, Milarepa, the namesake of the Center.
Nawang Khechog is a Grammy Award nominee and international recording and performing artist. He is known for his beautiful music and is also a gifted teacher of Buddhist philosophy.
Free of charge.
