We are in an increasingly turbulent world where environmental problems are presenting some major challenges to our global village. The value of inner peace and equanimity has never been more pressing.

To live in a sustainable way we must depend on those around us. To gain satisfaction and happiness in life we need to cooperate and coexist with people and planet peacefully.  For peace we need to be mindful in our actions and reactions. To reduce our carbon footprint, we need non-material ways to feel satisfied with life. 

Rinpoche observes a gentle lifestyle and his words of wisdom are infused with kindness. The Dhargyey Buddhist Centres in Dunedin and Christchurch are very pleased to be able to give our cities the chance to listen to this great Buddhist master. He will speak for about an hour and then receive questions from the audience.

H.H. The Dalai Lama recognised Rinpoche as the reincarnation of His principal teacher who had passed away in the mid 1980’s and has taken care to oversee Rinpoche’s development since. 

Rinpoche’s talks also remind us that loving kindness is the basis of personal mental health and peace in the world. They contain a mix of ancient wisdom and contemporary perspectives applied to everyday challenges and are delivered with concern for the happiness and suffering of all living beings.

His Holiness The Dalai Lama is known for his regular dialogue with leading scientists and academics in various fields of study including quantum physics, psychology, education and social sciences. “Some people say Buddhism is not just a religion, but also a science of the mind. When you hear reports of quantum physicists approaching His Holiness’s in their efforts to understand the reality they are measuring it seems to lend weight to these claims” said Peter Small – a DBC trustee.

“I met His Eminence once several years ago and could clearly see why people treated Him with such respect and awe. Many others were lining up to get some brief chance to meet him, to share their lives with him and experience his inspiring presence.” said Peter.

Based in one of His Holiness The Dalai Lama’s large monasteries in India, His Eminence The 7th Yongzin Ling Rinpoche has excelled and gained wide respect during his decades of study and practice. Now he is in increasing demand around the world.
  
DBC owes a great deal to Him as he has been a personal teacher to our founding Lamas. That he can bring alive the value of respect and kindness, without using Buddhism gives him a broad appeal.

This first visit to NZ begins in Auckland in late February and takes in The Coromandel, then Nelson and Dunedin, before its conclusion in Christchurch.
